Jorge Luis Gabrich (born October 14, 1963) is an Argentinian former professional footballer who played in the 1983 FIFA World Youth Championship and won second place in the tournament he also received the Bronze Boot award for his performance.


Born in Chovet, Santa Fe, Gabrich began playing professional football with local side Newell's Old Boys at age 16.[1]

Following his performance at the 1983 youth championship, Gabrich signed for Spanish La Liga side FC Barcelona. However, due to limits on the number of foreign players in the squad, he began playing for the "B" side and would make only two La Liga appearances for the club following an injury to Diego Maradona.[2]

Gabrich would later play in the French league and then in Mexico before returning to Argentina to play for Newell's again. He retired at age 32.[1]
