Allan Alemán Avila (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈalan aleˈman]; born 29 July 1983 in San José, Costa Rica[1]) is a retired Costa Rican professional football.


Club career

Alemán made his professional debut with Deportivo Saprissa where he was known for his hard work on the field, his quickness, scoring skills and most of all his talent for creating assists.[2]

With Saprissa he won two national championships, as well as an UNCAF Cup title and a CONCACAF Champions Cup title.[1] After the Clausura 2007 tournament, he signed with Italian businessman Matteo Quintavalle, which meant his departure from the team, seeing as Quintavalle is not a FIFA-licensed player's agent, and Saprissa would not negotiate with him. Quintavalle was accused of fraud,[3] and Alemán left Quintavalle (after a breach of contract by Quintavalle), and signed with Puntarenas F.C. on his own. 5 days before the transfer window closed, Aleman signed with Liberia Mia, but was allowed to play 2 more matches with Puntareanas against Saprissa, one of them for the UNCAF Cup Semifinals. Later he signed with Brujas but in January 2010, he returned to Saprissa. Alemán participated in the 2005 FIFA Club World Championship Toyota Cup with his team, who ended up in third place, behind São Paulo Futebol Clube and Liverpool F.C..[4]

On 23 July 2014, Alemán transferred to China League One side Xinjiang Tianshan Leopard.[5]


In the 2012 Allan decided to go to the Xelajú in Guatemala[6] who were managed by compatriot Hernán Medford. In summer 2013 he moved to Honduran football, joining Medford's new club Real España.[7]

International career

Alemán has made ten appearances for the senior Costa Rica national football team, his debut coming in a friendly against Chile on 2 June 2007.[8] He appeared in two matches for Costa Rica at the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[9]
