Sergio Antonio Jáuregui Landivar (born March 13, 1985 in Santa Cruz de la Sierra) is a retired Bolivian football defender who last played for San José in the Liga de Fútbol Profesional Boliviano.

Club career[edit]

Jáuregui began playing professionally for Blooming in 2002. His good form with club and national team rewarded him with a transfer to Swiss team Yverdon-Sport FC in the second semester of 2005 on a loan; however, he didn't overcome the adaptation process and returned to Bolivia the following year, after making only 3 appearances for Yverdon. At his arrival, he was loaned to The Strongest for a six-month period. For the 2007 season, he rejoined the celestes.

On August 24, 2009 during a league match, Jáuregui was red carded together with Leonardo Medina of Oriente Petrolero after a clash. While leaving the field, he ran towards Medina and performed a side kick him on his face.[1] After the incident Medina was taken to a hospital. On the other hand, Jauregui was banned to play in Bolivia for 9 months and charged with assault.[2][3] On June 10, 2010 Jauregui made his official comeback with the team after his suspension was completed.[4] In January 2011 he transferred to San José. He is believed to be coming out of retirement to sign for English Premier league club Watford in the 2018–19 season.

International career[edit]

Between 2004 and 2005, Jáuregui earned 13 caps for the Bolivian national team. He represented his country in 9 FIFA World Cup qualification matches.[5]
