Juan Ramon Curbelo Garis is a professional footballer from Uruguay and specializes in playing in the midfield. Curbelo began his career with Club Atletico Fenix in Uruguay where he burst into the scene, in 2001, after a sensational performance at the youth level. He broke into the senior team and after just a few games, became invaluable to the club.

In his first 3 seasons at the top level, Curbelo played 83 matches and scored 5 goals before moving on to Europe and Standard Liege. Curbelo only played the 2004-05 season in Belgium and scored 4 times in 30 games, dominating frequently from the midfield.

In 2005, he decided to return to Uruguay to Club Nacional de Football before moving onto Danubio in 2006, after just one appearance for Nacional. Things weren’t any brighter at Danubio as regular first team action still evaded Curbelo.

In 2007-08, Curbelo finally made a move that helped his career rise from the 2-year slump it had fallen into. 42 games and a goal for River Plate de Montevideo meant that Curbelo had succeeded in bringing himself back into the reckoning at the top level of football. The midfield general was becoming more influential with each game and soon, Mexico came calling as he moved to Indios de Ciudad Juarez in 2008.

Since moving to Mexico, Curbelo has played over 30 games, scoring 2 goals in the top flight.
