Víctor José Añino Bermúdez, commonly known as Vitolo (born 9 September 1983), is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for CD Tenerife as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Vitolo was born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands. A product of CD Tenerife's youth system he played one match for the first team during the 2001–02 season, as the club returned to the second division one year after being promoted; he made his debut in La Liga on 16 September 2001, coming on as a 76th-minute substitute in a 2–0 home win against Villarreal CF.[1]

From 2005 to 07 Vitolo was a key midfield element for Racing de Santander, which finished tenth in the top level in the latter campaign. After some problems with newly appointed coach Marcelino García Toral, however, he would spend 2007–08 on loan to another side in division two, Celta de Vigo.[2]

With the Galicians Vitolo did not manage to return to the main category of Spanish football, and his buy-out clause of approximately 3.000.000 was not activated, so the player returned to Cantabria. In August 2008, however, he was again loaned, joining Aris Thessaloniki FC;[3] under compatriot Quique Hernández, he eventually developed into a key midfield element during his first and only season.

On 27 July 2009 Vitolo terminated his contract with Racing, and signed a four-year deal with PAOK FC. He scored his first goal in Greece against his former team, in a 4–1 derby win.

On 13 July 2011, Vitolo was released by PAOK.[4] Later in the same day he signed with another club in the country's top division, Panathinaikos FC, penning a three-year contract.[5][6]

In the 2013 summer Vitolo was released by Panathinaikos, and joined Super Lig's Elazığspor for three years.[7] However, on February of the following year he rescinded his link,[8] playing his last game on December 2013 in a 1-0 home win over Rizespor; his side was eventually relegated in May, after ranking third from bottom.

On 18 June 2014 Vitolo returned to his first club Tenerife, after agreeing to a two-year deal.[9]

International career[edit]

Vitolo represented Spain at the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship held at the United Arab Emirates, alongside the likes of Sergio García and Andrés Iniesta. During the competition he played holding midfielder with notable performances, as Spain went on to lose 0–1 to Brazil in the final.[10]

Eventually, Vitolo progressed to the under-21s.
