Raúl Gutiérrez Sagredo (born 8 January 1976 in Santa Cruz de la Sierra) is a Bolivian retired football midfielder. He currently works in Blooming's youth sector as one of the managers.

Club career[edit]

Nicknamed "Pelecho", Gutiérrez began his career at a young age playing for second division club Libertad. In 1995, he transferred to Blooming, where he spent the next nine years of his professional career including two national championships obtained in 1998 and 1999.

In 2005, Gutiérrez was loaned to Cochabamba's club Aurora, but returned to Blooming the following season. During 2007, he played for Destroyers, and despite having a favorable season, he got injured and could not finish the tournament. The next year, while playing at Blooming for the third time in his career, he announced his retirement from the sport because he suffered from a fear of flying, a problem he was not able to overcome and got worse as the years went on.

International career[edit]

He was also part of the Bolivian national team between 1999 and 2003. He capped for Bolivia in 18 international matches.
