Flavio Gabriel Zandoná, nicknamed Chino (Chinese), (born April 8, 1967), is a former Argentine footballer who played most of his career for Vélez Sársfield of the Argentine Primera, winning 8 honours with the club. He was born in Zárate, Buenos Aires Province.

Playing career[edit]

Zandoná started playing for San Lorenzo in 1994 as a centre back. He later transferred to Vélez Sársfield where he was almost exclusively used as a right back. Zandoná won 8 titles with Vélez, including the 1994 Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental Cup.

Zandoná was known for his aggressive style on and off the field. Playing with Vélez in the 1995 Supercopa Sudamericana he punched Flamengo's striker Edmundo after a short slap exchange.[1] Later, in 1998, he punched a rival fan who had insulted him after seeing the red card in Vélez' game against Racing.[2]
