Néstor Gabriel Lorenzo (born 26 February 1966 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine former football defender. He played for Argentinos Juniors, A.S. Bari, Swindon Town, Club Atlético San Lorenzo de Almagro, Ferrocarril Oeste and Boca Juniors. Lorenzo also represented Argentina in the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, including the final which the Argentines lost to Germany.

Lorenzo in England[edit]

After Italia '90 and after an attempt by Brian Clough to sign Lorenzo for Nottingham Forest fell through, Argentine legend Ossie Ardiles signed the defender for Swindon Town initially on loan and eventually the deal became a permanent switch.

Lorenzo played 27 times for Swindon scoring 2 goals – one on his debut at the County Ground against Portsmouth F.C. in a 3–0 win, and one away at Watford F.C. in a 2–2 draw.

After seeing out his contract Lorenzo returned to Argentina. He later turned his hand to coaching, he was part of José Pekerman's coaching setup for the Argentina national team.
