Jorge Pulido Mayoral (born 8 April 1991) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Belgian club Sint-Truidense V.V. as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Born in Castillo de Bayuela, Castile-La Mancha, Pulido arrived in Atlético Madrid's youth system at the age of 10. He made his senior debuts in the 2009–10 season, appearing with the B-side in the third division.

On 10 November 2010, Pulido made his official debut with the Colchoneros's first team, playing the entire 1–1 home draw against Universidad de Las Palmas CF in the campaign's Copa del Rey (6–1 aggregate win).[1] On 18 February of the following year, he extended his contract with the club by signing until 2014.[2]

On 15 May 2011, benefitting from injuries to Diego Godín and Luis Perea and the suspension of Tomáš Ujfaluši, Pulido made his first La Liga appearance, playing the full 90 minutes – with a good overall performance – and being booked after committing a penalty in a 2–1 home win against Hércules CF,[3] as the club finally qualified to the UEFA Europa League. On 27 January 2012, he was loaned to fellow league team Rayo Vallecano until June.[4]

After being a regular starter with Rayo, Pulido returned to Atlético in the 2012 summer, but after being again underplayed he moved across the city to Real Madrid on 19 July 2013, being assigned to the reserves in the second level.[5] After suffering relegation with the latter he was released, subsequently joining Albacete Balompié also in that tier.[6]

Pulido scored his first professional goal on 25 January 2015, netting his team's second in a 3–2 win at AD Alcorcón.[7]

International career[edit]

Pulido participated in the 2008 UEFA European Under-17 Championship with Spain, helping his country to eventual victory in the tournament and scoring two goals.[8]
