Cristian Sosa (born 19 February 1985 in Montevideo) is a Uruguayan footballer who currently plays mainly as a right defender for Alessandria Calcio.


Early in his career, played for the Uruguayan clubs Defensor Sporting and Plaza Colonia. However, he did not get enough match practice (in the "Violetas" he played only six matches in the national championship), and the summer of 2008 he moved to Italy to play for Taranto Sport.

After playing a season in the Serie C1, he was transferred to the Serie B club Gallipoli Calcio, for which he played 34 games until 2010. His team entered a huge crisis and was relegated to Serie C.

In September 2010, Sosa was transferred to the Romanian Liga I side FCM Târgu Mureş as a free agent, after his previous team went bankrupt.[1]

In early 2011, he returned to Taranto Sport playing in the Serie C1. Playing regularly in the first team, twice participated in the playoffs for an exit to Serie B, but both times the team did not manage to upgrade to business class.

In mid-2012, after his team Taranto Sport went bunkrupt, he agreed a new deal with Serie B side A.S. Cittadella. On 25 September 2012, he scored his first goal in the 2-2 draw match against Livorno.[2]

In January 2014 he goes to Venezia F.C.; since the summer of the same year plays U.S. Alessandria Calcio 1912 which became captain of the season 16-17.
