Jorge Alberto Francisco Valdano Castellanos is an Argentine former football player and the current Director General of Real Madrid CF.
Valdano started playing when he was 16 years old for Rosario's club Newell's Old Boys, where he also started playing professionally, as well as with the Argentina national football team, in 1972.
Valdano played 22 times for Argentina, scoring seven goals, four of them in the 1986 FIFA World Cup, including one in the final itself. Other than the 1986 triumph, he also took part in the 1982 FIFA World Cup, but missed most of the tournament after being injured in Argentina's second game, against Hungary.
