‘Julian Alvarez: Standing Alone’, which tells the story of a remarkable year for our star forward, is now available to watch on CITY+.

Alvarez has collected six major football honours all in the space of a quite monumental 12 months - starting with Argentina’s FIFA World Cup win and ending with City’s triumph in the FIFA Club World Cup.

In between times, the 24-year-old played a major part in Pep Guardiola’s team securing a historic Treble of Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League before adding the UEFA Super Cup to his burgeoning list of accolades.


But how did he get here?

Well, City Studios, the club’s unique, world-class creative content and production hub, chart that quite incredible journey, starting with his early life in Calchin, Argentina, his bright beginnings in football at Atletico Calchin and the origin story of his nickname, La Arana - The Spider.

From there, we take in a hugely successful spell at Argentina super club, River Plate before a 2022 move to City and his astonishing trophy haul over a quite unforgettable year, becoming the first player in history to win the World Cup and continental Treble. 

You’ll hear from important people in his story including parents Mariana and Gustavo Alvarez, his girlfriend Maria Emilia Ferrero, BBC Sport’s South American football correspondent Tim Vickery, team-mates Rodrigo, Rico Lewis, Jack Grealish, Sergio Gomez and Manuel Akanji, club legend Paul Dickov, super fan Big Steve, fellow Argentinian Blues Sergio Aguero and Pablo Zabaleta as well as City’s Director of Football, Txiki Begiristain.

The documentary has been produced by City Studios, the team behind the upcoming ‘Together: Treble Winners’ six-part docuseries, which will be streamed exclusively on Netflix next month.

As you get set for that to hit your screens, enjoy this latest release focusing on one of the heroes of a quite unforgettable 2023.

Head over to CITY+ now to watch the documentary in full.
