Carlos Alberto Valderrama Palacio (born September 2, 1961 in Santa Marta, Colombia), also known as El Pibe (“The Kid”) is a former Colombian football player.
His mesmerizing mass of blond afro hair, coupled with his equally flamboyant and mesmeric technique on the ball, made him one of Colombia’s most recognizable footballers, and arguably, one of the most recognizable footballers around the globe.
Valderrama is married and has three children. Valderrama was the only Colombian to feature in FIFA’s 125 Top Living Football Players list in March 2004. He is currently a coach for a soccer academy in Clearwater, Florida.
