Gonzalo de los Santos da Rosa (born 19 July 1976) is an Uruguayan retired footballer who played as a defensive midfielder, and a current coach.
He spent the vast majority of his professional career in Spain, playing nearly 300 official matches for six teams over 11 seasons – 179 in La Liga alone, being crowned champion with Valencia – but started and finished it at the same club, Peñarol.
De los Santos gained 33 caps for Uruguay, and represented the nation at the 2002 World Cup.
De los Santos was born in Salto. After winning three consecutive Uruguayan leagues with C.A. Peñarol he moved to Spain, representing CP Mérida, Málaga CF (achieving La Liga promotion in 1999), Valencia CF – appearing in 13 matches for the 2002 league champions – Atlético Madrid and RCD Mallorca; at the latter club, he reunited with former Valencia teammate Jorge López, who had also been loaned shortly before.
For the 2006–07 campaign, after having spent one year in the sidelines, de los Santos joined Segunda División side Hércules CF. After two seasons where he was relatively used, he returned to Peñarol on 29 July 2008, retiring from football two years later at the age of 34.
An Uruguayan international for nine years, de los Santos was selected for the squad that appeared in the 2002 FIFA World Cup, featuring 20 minutes in the 0–0 group stage draw with France. He also represented the nation at the 1997 FIFA Confederations Cup in Saudi Arabia, playing in four games as Uruguay finished in fourth position.
