Carlos Alberto Sánchez Moreno (born 6 February 1986) is a Colombian professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Fiorentina, on loan from Aston Villa. He is nicknamed La Roca (The Rock), due to his strength on the pitch. He began his career at River Plate Montevideo before moving to Valenciennes in 2007, where he made 178 Ligue 1 appearances and scored ten goals across six seasons. After one campaign in La Liga with Elche, he joined Aston Villa in 2014. A full international since 2007, Sánchez has earned over 70 caps for Colombia. He was part of the squads that reached the quarter-finals of the 2011 Copa América, 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2015 Copa América, and finished third in the 2016 Copa América Centenario.
