Alberto Delgado y Pérez (born March 11, 1978 in Havana, Cuba) is a Cuban soccer player. As of 2005, he plays as a forward for Sevilla FC Puerto Rico of the Puerto Rico Soccer League.
Delgado defected from Cuba during the 2002 Gold Cup, together with cousin and future Colorado Rapids teammate Rey Ángel Martínez. He and Martínez ran away from their teammates halfway through breakfast, literally running for more than thirty minutes before finding a Spanish-speaking gas station attendant who then called a cab for them. Martínez made his way there shortly after that.
Before joining the Rapids in 2005, he most recently played for Ciudad de la Habana of Cuba and, before his defection, was one of the most dangerous players on the Cuban national team.
Delgado scored a goal and added three assists in his year with Colorado. He wears Pérez on the back of his jersey to honor his mother. He was released by the Rapids before the 2005 season, signing with Puerto Rico.
In 2008, he was loaned to Sevilla Bayamon in the Puerto Rico Soccer League and decided to stay with them instead of the Puerto Rico Islanders.Scores and results list Cuba's goal tally first.
