Jorge Alberto Drovandi (born 5 November 1985 in Rosario) is an Argentine footballer who plays for Sportivo Barracas as a left sided striker. His nickname in Spanish is "El Mono" which means "The Monkey".[1]

Club career[edit]

Drovandi arrived in Newcastle on 2 August 2007 and was given the number 7 jersey. He made his A-League debut when he came on as a substitute against Perth Glory in Round 1.[2]

Before the end of 2007 he didn't renew his contract Newcastle Jets, and went to play in the Ecuatorian league where he did really well scoring several opportunities in Azogues. His contract expired and left for Costa Rica where he played in Club Sport Herediano, one of the three most important teams in the Central American country, in the last semester of 2009, there he scored a few goals in a team that did not give him much opportunity and is going through financial difficulties.

He signed for Salvadoran club Alianza ahead of the 2015 Clausura season.[3]
