Getting to know: Gutierrez

Getting to know, presented by GE Appliances: Cristián Gutiérrez

Born in Quebec, raised in Chile and now living out his pro soccer dreams in Canada, you could say he's one-of-a-kind.

Except he's got a twin.

In this week's edition of Getting to Know, presented by GE Appliances, we learn more about Cristián Gutiérrez.

Who was your favourite soccer player growing up?

Marcelo from Real Madrid. We play the same position and he is one of the world’s best.

If you weren’t a soccer player, what do you think you would be?

I would be an architect.

What’s the website or app you visit the most?


Which actor would you pick to play your character if they made a movie about you?

I would love it if Jim Carey played me. I love all his comedies plus we have a lot in common - he’s tall and slim and hilarious. 

What’s your go-to quarantine meal?

Spaghetti Bolognese.

What’s your favourite TV show?


What’s your guilty pleasure?

I love gummies and chocolate and all types of muffins.

What’s a nickname your teammates have called you?

People have always called me Guti but here some of the players call me Tusa because that’s the song I had to sing in front of everyone when we were in San Diego for training camp.

What are you most proud of?

All my accomplishments to become a professional football player.
