Arnaldo Ariel Ortega (born 4 March 1974) is an Argentinemarker football attacking midfielder, who plays for River Plate. His nickname is "El Burrito" ("The Little Donkey"), thus called "Burrito Ortega".

Ortega's previous clubs include Fenerbahçemarker, Parma, Sampdoria, Valencia, and Newell's Old Boys. Ortega played for his country in the 1994, 1998, and 2002 World Cups. He was also a member of the team that won the silver medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Biography

He is widely recognized for his blinding pace and outstanding ability from dead ball situations, but most of all for his incredible dribbling ability. At his prime he was one of the best dribblers in the world. He is also famous for his lobbed shots.

Along with his skills, Ortega is infamously temperamental.

Europe

Ortega left Argentina in 1996. He played 1½ seasons for Valencia CF before signed by Sampdoria in 1998. After the club relegated to Serie B, Ortega joined Parma AC, rejoined national team and former club team-mate Hernán Crespo. But in the next season he returned to Argentina for River Plate.

Fenerbahçe and ban

In May 2002, Fenerbahçe signed Ortega from River Plate at a fee of USD 7,500,000 (USD 2,500,000 paid to Parma). Fenerbahçe also bought the image rights for USD 1,500,000. Ortega signed a 4-year contract. He was one of the key player of the team and scored 5 goals in 14 matches.

After he did not return to Turkey from international duty since 12 February 2003, Fenerbahçe filed to FIFA in April 2003. In June 2003 FIFA Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC) ordered Ortega to pay an amount of USD 11,000,000 as compensation for breach of an employment contract and suspended until 30 December 2003. Ortega appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in July 2003 but dismissed on 5 November. He then suspended for 4 months from that day.

After the ban he was without a club.

Return to Argentina

In 2004, when he finally could come back to football, he went to Newell's Old Boys, as he was called by his friend Américo Gallego, who at that time was Newell's' coach. Together, Newell also paid certian sum to Fenerbahçe for Ortega owe the club. They won the Apertura 2004.

On June 2006 he went back to his first team River Plate, where he played for about half of the Apertura 2006 , and then he stopped to start a treatment for alcoholism. On January 2007, during River's pre-season in Mar del Platamarker, and one day after playing an excellent game in which he even scored, he surprised everyone with another alcoholic episode, after which River Plate's doctors suggested to the coach that Ortega should go back to Buenos Airesmarker to resume the treatment against his problem.

Coach Daniel Passarella brought back Ortega stating he was ready for a comeback. On March 15, 2007, in a Copa Libertadores 2007 match against LDU Quito, Ortega formed part of River's bench but was not given a chance to play. However three days later, in a league match versus Quilmes, he came in the second half to help break the opposing team's defense in a tight 0-0 up to that point. Ortega would score a controversial goal with his hand on the 93th minute to give River the victory and a great personal comeback.

At the arrival of Diego Simeone as head coach of River, Ortega would eventually lose some "protections" he was rumoured to have and, despite being an important part of the team that achieved the Clausura 2008 title, Simeone left him out of the squad for the upcoming season, backing his decision on several times not coming to train as well as some episodes of alcoholism . After some controversy and rumours in the winter window of Argentine market, he was loaned to Nacional B side Independiente Rivadaviamarker, signing a one year contract where a twice a week trip to a Chilean Special Treatment Center for alcoholics is one of the clauses. On the 1st of May 2009 the player has been let go by Independiente officials. The club decided to terminate his contract in advance. Ortega was on loan from River Plate.On his first game back in River Plate, 25 July 2009, he scored an outstanding chip shot goal to give River a 1-0 victory over Everton F.C. of England in Edmonton, Canada during the preseason.

International

During the 1998 World Cup, in the quarter-finals against the Netherlands, Ortega received a straight red card for headbutting Dutch goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar when van der Sar confronted him after a dive in the penalty area, for which Ortega was just getting his first yellow card. Shortly after Ortega's sending off, Dennis Bergkamp scored the winning goal to make it 2-1, eliminating Argentina.

Ortega played his last match for Argentina on 12 February 2003, verse the Netherlands in Amsterdammarker.On September 24, 2009 he was surprisingly recalled to the Argentina national first team squad, but a couple of days later, it was announced that Ariel Ortega will miss the friendly match against Ghana due to a injury he picked up during the weekend in the Argentine Domestic League.
