1969 Importadores Peruanos - Hector Chumpitaz
Hector Chumpitaz is the greatest Peruvian defender of all time by a significant margin. Chumpitaz was at the heart of the defence throughout his career at Universitario, where he would be a runner-up in the Copa Libertadores, and he was the Captain of the Peruvian National Team during their golden era. Chumpitaz led Peru to three World Cup appearances and led Peru to a Copa America 1975 triumph.
Chumpitaz earned the nickname of El Capitan de America after a friendly between the European XI and Americas XI was hosted, which saw Chumpitaz captain the team of the Americas.
2 x Best Defender of CONMEBOL
8 x Peruvian Descentralizado
1 x Copa America
