David Arellano (1927)


Chilean footballer (soccer player), founder and martyr of the Colo Colo football club. He played as lefty Insider, was the scorer of the 1926 South American Championship (Copa América) and is considered one of the best Chilean football players ever.

He made his professional debut in 1919 with Magallanes, a Chilean football club. In 1925 he, along with other members, parted from Magallanes football club to form a new club which came to be known in Chile as Colo Colo. Arellano is attributed with showcasing the bicycle kick or in Chile known as the Chilena through footballing tours in Europe. Arellano played for the Chilean national team that participated in the 1924 and 1926 editions of Copa America. In the latter, he was the top scorer, with 7 goals.
