Hugo Sotil

Hugo Alejandro Sotil Yeren (born 8 March 1949 in Ica) is a Peruvian former professional football player. Nicknamed El Cholo, he played as a striker or midfielder. He, with Teofilo Cubillas and Hector Chumpitaz, was one of Peru's most recognized football players of the 1970s. He also was a popular player in Peru, and a biopic on his life was released.

He was famous for his great passing qualities and excellent dribbling, but alcohol-related problems curtailed his playing career.

In 1968, Sotil made his debut at the professional level for Municipal in the Peruvian Second Division, which he helped to obtain promotion to the First Division that year.
