Club career[edit]

CD Guadalajara[edit]

Arellano had originally started playing in club Guadalajara’s youth ranks around the same time as Javier Hernandez. At the age of 14 he decided to make the move to Club Pachuca where his father Omar Arellano Nuño was offered a job as head coach of Club Pachuca’s Juvenil squads. Before returning to Guadalajara in 2007, Arellano had played 394 minutes with Pachuca and had averaged out one goal every 131 minutes. He scored his first goal for CD Guadalajara against their town rivals Atlas, a match that is referred to as "El Clasico Tapatio" (Spanish for "Jalisco's Classic", since they play in the same state and city). On July 12, 2008 while playing the 2008 SuperLiga Arellano scored his second goal with Guadalajara at the 24th minute with a break-away, suitting the number 9 jersey left behind by Omar Bravo and his third goal again in the 2008 Superliga against Houston Dynamo. Arellano scored the two goals that helped Chivas defeat their rivals Club América in the Estadio Azteca in the El Súper Clásico. After a grueling injury that put him in the shelf for months, he returned on February 31, 2009 against F.C. Pachuca where he scored 2 of the 5 goals that his team scored in the 5-0 win. His own father, Omar Arellano Nuño was assistant and for an even shorter amount of time, manager in 2009. On April 4, 2010, he scored against America in the El Súper Clásico and Chivas became the first team in the Torneo Bicentenario to qualify to the liguilla. He is also not had good luck with injury due that he came back from one. On April 27, 2010 in the Copa Libertadores, he made an outstanding participation against Vélez Sársfield where he gave two assist in the 3-0 victory for Chivas de Guadalajara.
