Gabriel Antonio Méndez (born 8 May 1988) is an Argentine footballer who is currently a free agent. He plays as an attacking midfielder or striker and is nicknamed "El correntino".

Career[edit]

Méndez started his playing career in 2007 with Racing Club, in which he had been playing in the youth teams. However, he couldn't establish himself as a regular first team player and could only play 5 matches coming in as a substitute. In 2009, he joined Ecuadorian side Olmedo, in which he played 28 matches and scored 7 goals. After 6 months in Olmedo, he joined Deportivo Cuenca, in which he played 21 matches, scoring 6 goals, 3 of them in 2010 Copa Libertadores (2 against Banfield, his future club, and 1 against Monarcas Morelia). In July 2010, Méndez joined Banfield on a 1-year loan.

On 18 October 2019, Méndez agreed to a one year deal with Hong Kong club Pegasus.[1] He left the club on 17 December 2019, claiming that he could not adapt to the football environment of Hong Kong.[2]

However, only 2 weeks later on 1 January 2020, Méndez signed for another Hong Kong Premier League club, Southern.[3] His time with Southern ended on 20 April when he agreed to an early termination with the club due to financial difficulties caused by the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.[4]
