Daniel Orozco Álvarez (born 1 February 1987) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

Orozco was born in Fuengirola, Province of Málaga. After starting out with local UD Fuengirola Los Boliches he joined neighbouring Málaga CF in 2007, representing the reserve team in the fourth division for two seasons.

In July 2009, Orozco signed for another side in Andalusia, Unión Estepona CF in the third level,[1] but returned to his previous club in the following transfer window. On 24 March 2010 he made his first-team – and La Liga – debut, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–1 away loss against Valencia CF[2][3] and, even though the team was threatened with relegation until the last day of the season, he was still able to appear in a further three (complete) league matches.[4][5][6]

In the 2010 summer, Orozco moved to Asteras Tripoli F.C. from Greece, partnering countryman Rubén Pulido in central defense. He scored his first goal for his new club on 20 November 2010, in a 1–1 draw against Olympiakos Volos FC.
