Gualberto Mojica Olmos (Spanish pronunciation: [ɡwalˈβerto moˈxika], born 7 October 1984) is a Bolivian footballer that currently plays for Oriente Petrolero as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Mojica was one of the most promising prospects of the largely awarded Tahuichi 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.

At Blooming 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. Paços 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 again, 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. After a year with Oriente, Mojica returned to Blooming for his third stint.

In February 2013, Mojica returned to Romania, where he signed a contract for one-and-a-half year with Petrolul Ploiești.[1]

On 4 July 2013, he moved to China and signed a contract with China League One side Chongqing Lifan.[2]

International career[edit]

Mojica was the captain of the Bolivian Under-23 national team. In addition, he has capped for the senior Bolivian national team in 16 occasions under the orders of former manager Erwin Sánchez.
