Leandro Sebastián Velázquez (born 10 May 1989 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine football attacking midfielder who plays for Veracruz of the Liga MX.[1]


Club career[edit]

Velázquez made his league debut for Vélez Sársfield in the week before his 19th birthday. He played in a 1-1 draw with Racing on 4 April 2008. He scored his first goal against Estudiantes de La Plata in the Torneo Apertura 2008 and was part of the winning team in the Torneo Clausura 2009. He entered the field during the last game against Huracán when Vélez needed a victory to become champion, and was replaced by Leandro Coronel immediately after the team scored the winning goal.

Velázquez was loaned for the 2009–10 season to Newell's Old Boys.[2]

Johor Darul Ta'zim[edit]

In October 2015, Velázquez was called up in the starting eleven in the 2015 AFC Cup Final squad for Johor Darul Takzim, where he scored the winning goal in a 1-0 victory against FC Istiklol.


In January 2009 Velázquez was selected to join the Argentina under-20 squad for the 2009 South American Youth Championship in Venezuela. His team failed to qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
