Club career

He made his debut with the Colombian Serie B team Leones F. C. in 1993, his subsequent performances earned him a transfer to Colombian heavyweights Atlético Nacional in 1996. He made his name playing for San Lorenzo in Argentina from 1998 but signed for Italian side Internazionale in the winter transfer window, January 2000, costing the club €16 million, rejecting another offer from Real Madrid in doing so. He has become a mainstay of the Internazionale central defence, for years forming a highly effective partnership in central defence with Marco Materazzi. His long career at Inter has led him to be named vice-captain behind Javier Zanetti, due to this he had the honour of lifting the Coppa Italia in 2005 when Javier Zanetti was absent due to his presence in the Confederations Cup.

The 19 February 2008 he injured his left anterior cruciate ligament during the Champions League round of 16 against Liverpool, resulting in having to sit out the rest of the season.

The 9 June 2008 he renewed his contract until 30 June 2012 with Inter, ensuring that he would effectively finish his career with Inter.

On 5 May 2012 Cordoba announced that he'll leave Inter at the end of the season.[1] A day later, Cordoba was brought on in the 84th minute of the Derby della Madonnina, making his last competitive appearance in an Inter shirt after 13 years in the San Siro. In May he traveled with 18 other Inter players (with Dellafiore an exception) to Indonesia for a friendly tour.[2]

With Internazionale he has won 5 Serie A championships, 4 Coppa Italia, 3 Supercoppa Italiana, 1 UEFA Champions League, and 1 FIFA Club World Cup.

During the Derby della Madonnina (last game at home of the 2011–12 season), Inter players wore the Cordoba #2 while warming up before the kick-off.[3]

International career

He captained Colombia to win the 2001 Copa América competition, scoring the only goal in the final. Córdoba also played for his country in the 1998 World Cup.

Characteristics

Naturally a central defender and man-marker, he was athletic and relied mostly on his pace and timing. Despite being only 173 centimeters tall, he was a good header of the ball, a good jumper and often scored goals with his head. Córdoba was also a versatile defender, sometimes playing as a right back and on one occasion even as a left back.
