Sixto Raimundo "Mumo" Peralta Salso (born 16 April 1979, in Comodoro Rivadavia) is an Argentine retired footballer who last played as a midfielder for Chilean club Universidad de Concepción.

Club career[edit]

He made his professional debut against Lanús, 23 August 1996. He is a declared supporter of Patagonian-based club Comisión de Actividades Infantiles, where he took his first steps as a professional footballer, and where his father is president. Peralta spent a successful season at Ipswich Town in 2001–02, playing 22 matches during Ipswich's second season in the English Premier League. However, the club was relegated, and Peralta's loan was not made permanent. He then moved to Mexico and back to his native Argentina before joining CFR Cluj in Romania, arriving just in time to be part of the club's first championship season in 2007–2008. He later joined Chilean side Universidad Católica and continued his tour of Chile, signing for Universidad de Concepción. On 2 March 2014, Peralta scored a last-gasp equaliser in a 2–2 draw with Audax Italiano played at Estadio Bicentenario de La Florida. Audax Italiano went ahead when Felipe Mora scored in added time, but Peralta sparked mad scenes when he scored a dramatic last minute equaliser. Peralta described the goal as "one of the greatest moments of my career" in a post-match interview.

International career[edit]

He was part of the squad of Argentina Under-20 team at 1999 FIFA World Youth Championship.
