Biography


The Argentinian winger began his career with hometown side Talleres de Cordoba in 1983 after signing from youth outfit San Lorenzo Las Perdices. In 1991 José Luis moved to Mexico to play for Cobras de Cludad Juarez for a short spell before Jim McLean brought him to Scotland for a trial in March 1992. The former Under-19 international joined fellow countrymen Victor Ferreyra and Walter Rojas by signing a deal at Tannadice, for a fee based on performance.

He made his first team debut a week after signing, coming off the bench against St Johnstone at Tannadice. He had just one more first team outing and a few reserve games before leaving at the end of April 1992. He returned home to Argentina to play for several second tier clubs before retiring in 1998 aged 33.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    The Argentinian winger began his career with hometown side Talleres de Cordoba in 1983 after signing from youth outfit San Lorenzo Las Perdices. In 1991 José Luis moved to Mexico to play for Cobras de Cludad Juarez for a short spell before Jim McLean brought him to Scotland for a trial in March 1992. The former Under-19 international joined fellow countrymen Victor Ferreyra and Walter Rojas by signing a deal at Tannadice, for a fee based on performance.

  • On the corresponding Saturday last year we met St.Johnstone in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup but this clash had a touch of an end of season look about it. Saints got off to a lively enough start and may well have taken the lead after only five minutes. From Treanor's cross from the right, Roddy Grant sent in a header which Alan Main saved, but on to the post and Alan recovered in time to grab the rebound before Grant could reach it. There was, however, no such escape for us in the 14th minute. Maurice Malpas didn't get enough on his pass back and Paul Wright nipped in to nick the ball past Alan Main. Grant then shot narrowly past and then over and only a great block by Alan Main from a Tommy Turner shot prevented Saints from going two ahead. The switch of full-backs Jim McInally and Freddy Van der Hoorn who went to left-back took the sting out of the St. Johnstone attack and in the 29th minute we equalised when Duncan Ferguson's header from a Grant Johnson cross landed at the feet of Alex Cleland who picked his spot, shooting into the far comer.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 2 - 0 Hearts

    Our last home outing brought us an even more comfortable victory than the scoreline would suggest and at the same time we swept away any lingering hopes Hearts may have had of catching Rangers. Having booked the advantage of a gale-force wind we were encamped in the visitors half for almost the whole of the first period and created enumerable chances.
