He was nicknamed El Turco ("The Turk"). The nickname 'El Turco' is because he has Lebanese and Syrian ethnicities. In Argentina, the Arabs are usually mistakenly called Turks since they came to Argentina with Ottoman documents in the 1900s.
Husaín has won six Primera Division Argentina titles, three with Vélez and another three with River Plate. He has also won five international titles (although four of them were from one-off games).
