Adolfo Jose Valencia Mosquera is a former Colombian footballer, who played as a striker.
Valencia started playing with Independiente Santa Fe, where his stellar performances earned him a transfer to Germany's FC Bayern Munich; in his sole season (although he still played the first game of 199495), he was instrumental in helping the Bavarians clinch the league title, and finished as the club's top scorer .
Valencia also played one season in Spain, with Atletico de Madrid, where he was involved in a serious incident with irascible club president Jesus Gil, while vastly underperforming overall: after a match at CD Logrones, Gil said that "The black guy needs to have his throat cut". He subsequently went on to represent A.C. Reggiana, PAOK FC, NY/NJ MetroStars, Zhejiang Lucheng and Union Atletico Maracaibo. In his first season with the Major League Soccer outfit, Valencia set a team record by scoring 16 league goals (21 in all competitions), and retired from football in 2004.
