Mathías Leonardo Vidangossy Rebolledo (born 25 May 1987) is a Chilean professional footballer who plays for Club Deportivo Palestino on loan from Mexican club Chiapas F.C. as an attacking midfielder or winger.

Club career[edit]

Born in Santiago, Vidangossy began his career in the youth squads of Club Deportivo Universidad Católica, but finished his football grooming at Unión Española. He made his Chilean Primera División debuts in 2005, and became a constant feature in the starting lineups.

In June 2007, Vidangossy was signed to a five-year contract with Villarreal CF in Spain, joining compatriots Manuel Pellegrini (coach) and Matías Fernández.[1] However, he would never play any official games for the club, as all of the its foreign player spots were used up; he was quickly loaned out to fellow La Liga team UD Almería, but met the same fate.

Vidangossy was subsequently loaned to Chilean club Audax Italiano, which played in the 2008 edition of the Copa Libertadores. Afterwards, he stayed in the country and also on loan, now to Everton de Viña del Mar.

On 23 June 2009, Vidangossy was confirmed as a new Ñublense player, but he was released after only two months, momentarily retiring from football.[2] He joined Ceará Sporting Club of the Brazilian Série A on 17 February 2010[3] but, shortly after, he returned to his country and signed for San Luis Quillota.

Vidangossy subsequently represented, in quick succession and always in the Chilean top flight, Deportes La Serena, Colo-Colo, Unión Española and Club Deportivo Palestino. On 27 August 2015, he was loaned by the latter side to Chiapas FC, who had the option to make the move permanent.[4]

International career[edit]

In 2007, Vidangossy was selected to play for the Chilean under-20 team in the 2007 South American Youth Championship that took place in Paraguay. There, he scored twice against Bolivia.

The nation went on to qualify for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup that took place in Canada: in the quarter-finals against Nigeria, Vidangossy netted the last goal in a 4–0 extra time[5] as the team eventually finished third, their best-ever performance in the category.
