Jorge Orosmán da Silva Echeverrito (born December 11, 1961 in Montevideo) is a former Uruguayan footballer and the current manager of Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia.

Nicknamed "Polilla" during his career, the striker played professionally in four different countries (his homeland notwithstanding).

Club career

Da Silva made his debut in 1977 for Centro Atlético Fénix. He then had a short spell with Danubio FC, before joining Defensor Sporting in 1978.

In 1982, da Silva moved to Spain, where he started playing for Real Valladolid and won the Pichichi Trophy (for the league's topscorer) in 1983–84, with 17 goals in 30 matches; he was only the second club player ever to win the award, and he also help add the team's first piece of silverware in the same season, the League Cup. He then represented Atlético Madrid, after Hugo Sánchez left for Real Madrid, and netted 21 league goals in two seasons, helping the club to the Copa del Rey and the Supercopa de España, both in 1985.

In 1987 da Silva returned to South America, signing for Club Atlético River Plate of Argentina, and scoring 23 goals in 58 appearances. Two years later, he moved countries again, joining Chile's Club Deportivo Palestino, and in 1991 he went to Colombia to play for América de Cali, where he won the league in 1992.

After another year in the country, with Club Deportivo Los Millonarios, da Silva returned to his native land and joined Defensor Sporting, where he retired at nearly 36. The following decade, he began his coaching career, with Uruguay's national youth teams; in 2007 he returned to his last club, leaving after two years for Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia.

International career

Having made his official debut on February 20, 1982 against South Korea (2–2) during the Nehru Cup, da Silva earned 26 international caps for Uruguay.

He represented the nation at the 1986 FIFA World Cup, going scoreless in three matches (out of four) and being booked twice.
