Biography (wiki)

Gary Alexis Medel Soto (Spanish pronunciation: ; born 3 August 1987) is a Chilean professional footballer who plays for Turkish club Beşiktaş as a defensive midfielder. However, he can also play as a defender. Due to his work-rate, physicality, tenacity, tactical intelligence, and his aggressive, hard-tackling style of play, as well as his leadership on the pitch, he is nicknamed the Pitbull.

A full international with over 100 caps since 2007 for the Chile national team, he has represented the nation at two FIFA World Cups and as many Copa América tournaments, winning the 2015 Copa América (while being named in the Team of the tournament) and the Copa América Centenario.

Medel joined Universidad Católica at the age of 12. His youth team coach Mario Lepe put his name forward to join the senior ranks.

On 20 July 2009, he joined Boca Juniors on an initial loan for US$300,000 with the option to buy for $2.5 million, with Damián Díaz being sent in the opposite direction. Medel said of the move "This is a dream come true. It is a very important club, and one which has players which I admire a lot, Juan Román Riquelme, Martín Palermo and Sebastián Battaglia. He is my idol and has me very happy to play by his side". Medel scored both goals in a 2–0 win in the Superclásico against River Plate on 25 March 2010.
