Sebastián Abreu Breaks The Guinness World Record For The Most Professional Clubs Played For

Meet Sebastián 'El Loco' Abreu, the striker who has broken the Guinness World Record for the most professional clubs played for after signing a deal with the 26th team in his career. I repeat, THE 26TH.

The 41-year-old has broken German goalkeeper Lutz Pfannestiel's previous record after spells in Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador, Israel, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile and his native Uruguay.

Earlier this week, Abreu signed a deal with Chilean Primera División side Audax Italiano after scoring 11 goals in 13 appearances for Primera B de Chile outfit Deportes Puerto Montt in 2017.

Shortly after securing his 26th transfer, Abreu, who scored 26 goals in 70 games for Uruguay, wrote on Twitter:

"I inform you that Audax Italiano will be my next club for the 2018 season and we will have ahead of us the league, Copa Chile and Copa Sudamericana.

"This being my 17th participation in a team playing at CONMEBOL level. On Jan. 9 we will begin pre-season, with a lot of enthusiasm and dreams."
