Gonzalo Colsa Albendea (born 11 May 1979) is a Spanish footballer who plays usually as a central midfielder.

Football career[edit]

A product of Real Racing Club de Santander's youth ranks, Colsa was born in Santander, and he appeared sporadically with the first team (with an unassuming second division stint with CD Logroñés in between) during his first four seasons, although he scored three goals in 19 games in the 2000–01 campaign, with the Cantabrians being relegated from La Liga.

After representing Atlético de Madrid, Real Valladolid and RCD Mallorca, Colsa returned to Santander for 2006–07, as an undisputed starter and one of the team's captains.[1] In his second season in the second spell he appeared in all the matches as Racing achieved a first-ever qualification to the UEFA Cup,[2] and netted two times.[3][4]
