Club Deportivo Málaga reached an agreement with Daniel Óscar Quevedo Fleitas 'Quevedo' (Pozo del Tigre, 1947), centre forward, after his great performance at the historic Club Atlético Peñarol in Uruguay, with whom he won the League in 1973, 1974 and 1975.

His first season at CD Málaga was in the Second Division, in the 1975/76 season, and his 17 goals scored in 32 games were crucial for the Malaguista team, led by Milorad Pavić, in achieving First Division promotion. His memorable four goals in the Málaga 6-2 Alavés clash at La Rosaleda on 30th May 1976 led to the eighth promotion to the elite in Málaga’s history. Quevedo was the third top scorer that year after Illán (19 goals, Tenerife) and Burguete (18 goals, Córdoba).

In the top flight of Spanish football (1977), Quevedo played a total of 15 matches, scoring three goals. CD Málaga were relegated that season.

During his last season at Martiricos, in the silver division, Quevedo played a total of nine games. In the League, as a Malaguista, he played 56 matches between the First and Second Divisions, scoring 20 goals.

Málaga Club de Fútbol sends deepest condolences to his family and friends.
