Víctor Machín Pérez (born 2 November 1989), known as Vitolo, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Sevilla FC. Despite being right-footed, he plays mainly as a left winger, and can also operate as a forward.

He began his career with Las Palmas before joining Sevilla in 2013, where he won the Europa League three times.

Club career[edit]

Las Palmas[edit]

Vitolo was born in Las Palmas. He came through the youth ranks at hometown club UD Las Palmas, playing for two years with the B-team before making the breakthrough in the 2010–11 season, with the Canary Islands side in the second division; he made his debut on 28 August 2010, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–2 home win against Gimnàstic de Tarragona, and scored his first goal for the club in a 4–1 defeat of AD Alcorcón on 11 September, also at home.[1]

On 27 November 2010, in another home fixture, against Rayo Vallecano, Vitolo sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury on his right knee that ruled him out for the rest of the campaign.[2]

Sevilla[edit]

Vitolo joined Sevilla FC on 28 June 2013, after agreeing to a four-year contract.[3] He made his debut in La Liga on 18 August by featuring the full 90 minutes in a 1–3 home loss to Atlético Madrid,[4] and scored his first goal in the competition on 10 November, contributing to a 3–1 success at RCD Espanyol.[5]

In his first season in Andalusia, Vitolo played 45 games all competitions comprised and scored eight times – this included four in 16 matches in the club's victorious run in the UEFA Europa League.[6] On 12 March 2015 he scored the fastest-ever goal in the continental competition, finding the net after just 13 seconds to help to a 3–1 away win against fellow Spaniards Villarreal CF;[7] he was surpassed on 15 September 2016 by Jan Sýkora from FC Slovan Liberec, who netted against Qarabağ FK at 10,69.[8][9]

With three league goals in March 2015 – half of his total for the season up to then – Vitolo was voted La Liga Player of the Month.[10] [11] On 27 May, he assisted Carlos Bacca's winning goal as Sevilla retained their Europa League crown with a 3–2 victory over FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in Warsaw.[12]

International career[edit]

On 20 March 2015, former Spanish under-19 international Vitolo was called up for the first time to the senior squad by coach Vicente del Bosque, ahead of a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier against Ukraine.[13] He did not take part in the match, a 1–0 victory at his club ground, the Estadio Ramon Sánchez Pizjuán,[14] but made his debut in the following fixture, a 0–2 friendly loss at the Amsterdam Arena to the Netherlands on the 31st, coming on as a substitute for Pedro at half time.[15]
