Vicente Jose Matias Vuoso is a Mexican football striker, who played in the last years for Santos Laguna in the Mexican First Division.
Matias Vuoso began his career in Argentina with Independiente. Playing alongside Diego Forlan, Vicente scored seven goals in 29 games for Independiente in 2000-01 and another seven in 35 games in 2001-02. He left the Argentenian club in June 2002 to sign with English club Manchester City, joining for 3.5 million. However, Vuoso was quite unsuccessful with Manchester City, not appearing in a single game, and was subsequently loaned out to Santos Laguna for the 2003-04 season.
Despite moving from the Premier League to the Primera Division Mexicana, in the beginning of his stay in Mexico, Vuoso experienced the same problems at Santos Laguna that he faced at Manchester City. Coming to a club that already boasted an impressive attack that featured Chilean playmaker Rodrigo Ruiz and legendary Mexican striker Jared Borgetti, Vuoso was exclusively played as a substitute during the first part of the Apertura 2003 season. As fate would have it however, Vuoso was thrown into the starting mix when Borgetti suffered a minor injury that required a two week absence from the pitch. Vuoso scored in both of the games he started in place of Borgetti and subsequently convinced Santos manager Luis Fernando Tena, who awarded Vuoso a starting job.
