Football career

After immigrating with his parents to the country at the age of six, Madrid-born Orejuela began his professional career in Germany, playing in the second division with FSV Frankfurt. In 1983 he returned to his homeland, starting with UD Salamanca and RCD Mallorca – in both cases he would suffer relegation from La Liga, in four seasons of play; he made his debut in the competition with the former, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–0 away draw against CA Osasuna on 4 September 1983.

In the 1988–89 campaign, Orejuela signed for Atlético Madrid. During his five-year stay with the Colchoneros he played regularly in the first two, but suffered greatly with injuries in the other three (just 12 matches combined), precisely as the capital club won back-to-back Copa del Rey trophies, in 1991 and 1992.

Orejuela then played one season with neighbours Rayo Vallecano, appearing more but being again relegated from the top level. He subsequently returned to Mallorca for a further campaign, now in the second division, and retired at 36 after a spell in the amateur championships.
