Luis Alfredo Ramírez Quioto, nicknamed El Bombero (the Pumpman), (born 21 November 1977) is a Honduran football striker who currently plays for Deportes Savio in the Honduran national league. He is nicknamed Bombero because he used to work at a gas station as a gas pump attendant.

Club career[edit]

Ramírez started his career at Independiente and made his professional debut on 10 June 1998 against Olimpia.[1] He then played for Real España before a short stint with Chinese team Guangzhou Jili Cars. On his return to Honduras, he played for Universidad, Honduras Salzburg, Victoria and Marathón. He scored 59 league goals for them altogether from his debut until 2009.[2]

Chinese years[edit]

In 2006 he tried his luck in the Chinese league, where he would stay for six years, playing for Shanghai Shenhua, Guangzhou Pharmaceutical and Hangzhou Greentown. In between he played the 2009 Clausura season with Marathón.[3] Ramírez scored two goals for Guangzhou Pharmaceutical against Wuhan Guanggu in a 3-1 win on the opening fixture of the 2008 Chinese Super League Season. He is the first and the only player to win both Chinese Jia League and Chinese Super League golden boot award.

Return to Honduras[edit]

He returned to Honduras to play for Marathón in the 2012 Clausura.[4] In summer 2012, el Bombero joined Honduras de El Progreso of the Honduran second division[5] but he returned to the top flight to play in the 2013 Clausura for Deportes Savio.[6]
