He would go on to win two titles with River Plate, both the titles contested in 1975. He was twice the top scorer in the Argentine Primera and once top scorer in the Copa Libertadores. In total, he scored 199 goals in 382 games for River, being their second-most prolific scorer behind Angel Labruna.

Investigative journalism and lawsuit for fraud

On Monday June 29, 2009, Oscar Más was convicted to a six months suspended sentence for fraud, during an abbreviated trial after being arrested the previous day while he was voting in a San Isidro school, in the northern area of Greater Buenos Aires, on the occasion of the parliamentary elections of June 2009. The former player had an arrest warrant for breaking legal action under a suspension of trial by which he was benefited on a fraud lawsuit, as legal sources stated.[1]

Más was arrested in a police station and was transferred the next day to the warden of the Palace of Justice to appear before the Oral Criminal Court No. 7 that sought his arrest, by judges Daniel Morin, Gustavo Valle and Juan Giúdice Bravo. The detention order was made because he did not comply with probation that justice had issued on December 2006 to not to go to trial because of the complaint against him.[1]

The former player should have reported periodically to the Board of Trustees of the Freed, which he failed to do, and he wasn't located in the home that he had fixed so the court declared his rebellion and ordered his arrest. However, until the decision is final, he shall remain free.[1]

On its issue of Friday July 10, 2009, the investigative news program Documentos América, issued by the channel América TV, revealed a hidden camera which presented Oscar Más demanding money from parents of children, in exchange for providing the latest a precarious training and eventual admission to the lower divisions of River Plate.[2]
