Presence and elegance

Find out who Yordan Osorio is and how the 23 years old Venezuelan international defender plays


Those not paying attention may not have noticed Yordan Osorio, but the evolution he showed in Tondela didn’t go unnoticed to FC Porto. With an imposing stature (1.89m) and a physique that commands respect, Yordan Osorio makes his presence known to forwards, assuming himself as a defender difficult to beat even due to his speed, along with good positioning.

Osorio is a modern and elegant central defender that perfectly combines some important features: physical power, speed and strength. On a more offensive side, the jumping ability the Venezuelan international has can make him an asset in set pieces, but when the team needs to move up and play, you can count on him as well.

With good technical resources, Osorio doesn’t hesitate to move up with the ball and pushing the team forward when the moment demands, and he can also play as a defensive midfielder when needed. At age 23, after a season and a half shining in Tondela, the central defender born in Barinas now embraces the biggest challenge of a career that started in Zamora, from Venezuela, and things look promising.
