Jorge Brítez (born 2 February 1981) is a Paraguayan footballer who plays for Club Rubio Ñu.



Brítez played in the 1999 FIFA World Youth Championship in Nigeria as well as the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship in Argentina. There, he was spotted by officials from a Spanish club and moved on to Europe but never fulfilled his potential there ultimately returning to his native Paraguay. Stints abroad in Israel and Portugal did not bear any fruit for Brítez' career for the second time so he returned to Paraguay. On 30 August 2010, he signed with the Superleague Greece club Panserraikos F.C.. According to Paraguayan media, tired of the abuse and conflict between managers, coaches and players of Panserraikos F.C., Brítez terminated his contract with Panserraikos F.C. on 25 October 2010 and returned to Paraguay.[1] Another website stated that Jorge Britez returned to Paraguay after annulling Panserraikos contract.[2] Britez's agent Miguel Gonzalez Zelada explained that "With Britez we arrived at an agreement with the Greek club to cancel the contract, since he has not adapted, he does not like the treatment he received from the directors and the management. Now we are going to see where he can train, and by the end of the year find a club to play at,". On 20 December 2010, Brítez revealed that his manager is in negotiations with Peruvian football club Juan Aurich.[3] On 4 January 2011, Peruvian media announced that the player signed with Peruvian football club Juan Aurich.[4]

Stint in Israel[edit]

After playing with the Paraguayan national team, Jorge was spotted by scouts of Maccabi Haifa. He joined the squad along with Dante López but the two had trouble acclimating to life in Israel. Britez was expected to take on a defensive midfield role but Haifa officials later found out that that was not his natural position. He ended up finishing his only season in Israel and moving on to play club football in Portugal.
