Alfonso Darío Pereyra Bueno (born 19 October 1956) is a Uruguayan former football (soccer) player. Having played for Club Nacional de Football in his home country, he reached stardom playing for São Paulo FC as a centre-back along with Oscar. He is still remembered and revered as one of the best centre-backs in the history of Brazilian football.
Legend has it that, whilst returning from a victory in an away match that crowned São Paulo the Brazilian champions, he wouldn't understand what the fuss was all about, but the supporters would not let him sleep. He had won a few times the national championship in Uruguay, so he felt that winning the Brazilian championship was nothing special. He latter realized how difficult it is to win a Brazilian National title. It had been the first time São Paulo F.C. won that championship.


Darío Pereyra started his career at the Nacional de Montevideo and debuted at the Uruguay national squad when he was only 18, becoming the captain of the national team at 19. After having scored 14 goals in 34 matches in the national team, São Paulo F.C. hired him on October 17, 1977 for 5 million cruzeiros, the second largest sum to be ever paid for a player at the time in Brazil. He arrived at the Congonhas airport wearing a São Paulo jersey, and was received warmly by the supporters of that team. Pereyra was not able to play immediately after his arrival, for he did not have the necessary documentation to do so. In December 1977, Real Madrid C.F. made an offer that could have cut his São Paulo career short, but the player was not interested in playing in Spain at that particular time.
Throughout his time at São Paulo, he and Oscar, who was also a centre-back, became a line of defence that is frequently remembered as one of the best in that club's history.[6] He played a total of 451 matches in that club, scoring 38 gols. After the 1988 São Paulo state championship, Pereyra has transferred to Flamengo, where he played only 11 matches. After that, he was hired by Palmeiras in early 1989, when he was already 32. In the following year, he played for two years at Gamba Osaka, then called Matsushita Electronic, where he would end his playing career.
Darío Pereyra also made regular appearances in the Uruguayan national team, and has played in the 1986 FIFA World Cup.

ADDITIONAL INFO provided by me:

One of the three greatest Uruguayan defenders of all time along with Nasazzi and Santamaria. He started his career playing as an offensive midfielder, but changed to the referred position which made his fame.

Tele Santana once said if D. Pereyra were Brazilian, he would be the best Brazilian defender of all time, just below Domingos da Guia. The same legendary coach Tele Santana asked him, in 1982, if he wished to be naturalized Brazilian to take part in the fantastic 1982 World Cup Brazilian Team, but Darío elegantly refused the proposition standing faithful to his origins.

He was right footed although playing in the left side.
He played more like a sweeper alongside Oscar who was the stopper in the early 80's Sao Paulo
Some stuff like STA, speed, AGI, RES, JUM... seems high.

I thought you could update the rest of South American players which are not under your command, but never sent you a PM. So for players from SA you have the stats for and if our current stats are not good, send me a PM and we'll discuss it..

Stop the PSD copycats...

Well thanks but updating the rest of the SA players, that would be some huge load of work above of my current capacities lol
If I have some posted stuff, or I'll post some sets that suit you, just take what you like in them, it would be much more simple. No need to give credits either.
