† Appearances (goals)

Juan Daniel Forlín (born 10 January 1988) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for Mexican club Querétaro FC. Mainly a central defender, he can also operate as a defensive midfielder.

He started out at Boca Juniors, then spent four years in La Liga with Espanyol, appearing in 118 official games and scoring two goals.

Club career

Born in Reconquista, Santa Fe, Forlín made his Primera División debut on 19 April 2008, as his team Boca Juniors won 2–1 against Newell's Old Boys. In his first full season, he was an undisputed starter as the Buenos Aires outfit conquered the 2008 Apertura.

On 25 August 2009, Forlín was signed by RCD Espanyol from Spain – alongside Boca teammate Facundo Roncaglia – on a five-year deal, with the Catalans paying a fee of 4 million for 70% of his rights.[1] He made his La Liga debut on 12 September in a 0–3 home loss against Real Madrid,[2] and scored in his next appearance, a 3–2 win at Deportivo de La Coruña,[3] finishing his first season with 24 games, receiving 11 yellow cards and being sent off once.

During his spell with the Pericos, Forlín was regularly used by compatriot Mauricio Pochettino as both a central defender and a defensive midfielder. The same befell him under Javier Aguirre, who was appointed in November 2012.

On 21 July 2013 Forlín moved to Al Rayyan SC in Qatar, for an undisclosed fee.[4] He was released by the club in July 2015.[5]
