Orlando Contreras Collantes (born 11 June 1982 in Pucallpa, Lima) is a Peruvian footballer who plays as a center back for Universidad César Vallejo in the Peruvian First Division.

Club career[edit]

Contreras started his career in the youth academy of Universitario de Deportes, playing for their second team América Cochahuayco.

He was already a skilled defender but at that time Universitario de Deportes had great defenders so he never got the opportunity to play for their senior squad.

In 2004 he left América Cochahuayco and to join Unión Huaral.

After his experience at Unión Huaral he went to FBC Melgar. There he was partnered with Pedro Aparicio and Carlos Solis.

In 2007 Contreras joined newly formed Peruvian club Universidad San Martín. There he had the best of seasons in all his career. It was rummoured that he would join several big Peruvian clubs such as Alianza Lima or Sporting Cristal, or possibly a European club. In 2008 he was named Player of the year and Defender of the year by Direct TV.[1]

At the beginning of 2009 Alianza Lima confirmed that they had reached an agreement with Orlando to join them until the end of the season.
