Antonio 'El Turco' Mohamed (born 2 April 1970 in Buenos Aires) is a retired Argentine football striker, and soccer manager. The nickname 'El Turco' is because he has Syrian and Lebanese ethnicity. In Argentina the Arabs are usually mistakenly called Turks since they came to Argentina with Ottoman documents in the 1900s. He started his career in Argentina with Huracán, but played the majority of his career in Mexico. His climax was in Toros Neza when they had made it to the final against Chivas in the Verano '97 season alongside other famous players at the time such as Nildeson, Rodrigo Ruiz, and Germán Arangio. Mohamed left Toros Neza shortly before the club dissolved and went on to play for Club de Fútbol Monterrey. After playing shortly for several other Mexican football clubs from 2000 to 2003, he officially retired.
