Burdisso is someone who has the characteristics of an old school Argentine central defender: forceful with his tackles, excellent with the ball at his feet, attentive with his marking and strong in the air.

He has managed to become a key defensive figure in a league as competitive as the Italian Serie A, which only demonstrates his tactical astuteness. In addition, he frequently helps out his team in attack thanks to his menacing presence in the opposition area during set pieces. He made his international debut with Argentina in 2003 and he picked up the gold medal in the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Burdisso ranks as the second Argentine with the most club titles, behind only Don Alfredo Di Stefano.
