Álvaro Fabián González Pintos (born 12 September 1973 in Canelones) is a former Uruguayan footballer who last played for Danubio F.C. in the Uruguayan Primera División.[1]

Club career[edit]

González began his career playing for Uruguayan side Cerro who back then played at the Primera División Uruguaya. He then moved to Bella Vista of the same league.[2] In 2002, after a spell at Bella Vista and Chilean side Everton, he joined Pumas at age 28.[3] He played two seasons for Pumas and participated in the Copa Libertadores but did not become a regular member of the squad. Instead, he dropped down to play in the Primera A with Dorados de Sinaloa where he played 34 games scoring 10 goals. He was then transferred to another Primera A team, Lagartos de Tabasco where he played in 85 games scoring 46 goals. In 2006 moved to Puebla FC, who did not manage promotion after being relegated in 2005 to the Primera A. At Puebla, 'Bolita' quickly became a fan favorite as he helped the club win the 2006-07 championship. By doing so, he was top scorer of the Primera A two times where he scored 19 goals in the Apertura and then 22 goals in the Clausura. González was fundamental in Puebla's promotion to the Primera División in 2007.[4] In 2009, he was released by Puebla FC and signed with Primera A's club and city rival Lobos de la BUAP where he scored 9 goals in 19 matches, and returning to Puebla FC shortly afterwards. Despite scoring most goals at the Primera A, he currently persists as the fourth all time topscorer for Puebla FC with 72 goals, 11 goals behind one of Puebla´s emblems of the 90s, the Chilean Carlos Poblete. On December 29, 2010, with 37 years old, Alvaro González signed a one-year contract with the Uruguayan club Danubio FC.
