- After he had conceded a penalty for the visitors in a Match between Rosario and Newell's Old Boys in 1974 Alvarez was hit by a stone in his eye. He was operated on the same day.
- then later on, local police using an old law arrested Alvarez for "Sports Fraud" and threw him in jail. Only after a referee strike Alvarez was released again.
