Oscar Alberto Dertycia Álvarez (born 3 March 1965 in Córdoba) is a retired Argentine footballer, who played as a striker.

Football career

Dertycia started playing professionally with hometown's Instituto Atlético Central Córdoba, moving in 1988 to Argentinos Juniors, and being crowned the first division's topscorer in his debut campaign. In the following summer, Tiburón joined Italy's ACF Fiorentina, being the predecessor of legendary Gabriel Batistuta.[1]

After a relatively unassuming spell, which also included a severe injury, Dertycia moved to Spain, first with Cádiz CF, where he garnered a firm fanbase, being nicknamed Mister Proper due to the bald head he now sported (due to the resulting stress after the injury).[1]

However, his heyday would be lived at CD Tenerife. He signed in 1991 as a replacement for Panamian Rommel Fernández, and was a crucial offensive weapon for the Canary Islands side under compatriot Jorge Valdano; never an undisputed starter, he did amass 16 league goals in his first two seasons combined, being intimately connected to Real Madrid's consecutive championship losses in the last-round, to FC Barcelona.

Dertycia had one final season in the country, with Albacete Balompié, then returned to his native Córdoba to play in the second level; after short spells, including in Chile and Peru, he retired in 2002.
