Gualberto Mojica

Gualberto Mojica Olmos is a Bolivian footballer currently under contract with Oriente Petrolero. Mojica plays as an attacking midfielder.

Mojica was one of the most promising prospects of the largely awarded Tahuichi Aguilera Football Academy's class of '84. After an impressive performance in the Gothia Cup, winning the title with Tahuichi in 2001, he awoke the interest of Wilstermann, club for which he later signed in May 2001. After two years playing in Cochabamba, he was transferred to Blooming where his career took off. He soon became the team captain and one of the most notable players in the Bolivian League. In 2005 Mojica had a remarkable season; his great performances helped the team win its fourth national championship. Following his successful spell with Blooming, he transferred to Romanian club CFR Cluj before moving to Portuguese side F.C. Pacos de Ferreira not long after. From the beginning he struggled to gain a consistent first-team place, making only 15 league appearances combined during his European journey. After a disappointing season overseas, he returned to Bolivia on January 2008, and signed with Blooming for a year. When the contract expired, Mojica demanded a considerable raise of salary and the club decided to dispense with his services. Thus, Mojica signed with local rival team Oriente Petrolero in January 2009.

Mojica was the captain of the Bolivian Under-23 national team. In addition, he has capped for the senior Bolivian national team in 13 occasions. Lately, he has been strongly questioned about his performance; however, with Erwin Sanchez as the current manager, Mojica has secured a spot in the national squad despite the criticism.
