ABOUT THE ART
Okay I’ll hold my hands up, I didn’t know a great deal about this player either, but it seemed a shame to waste such a great nickname. For the record Jorge Orosmán da Silva Echeverrito was nicknamed “Polilla” (the moth in English).
He represented Atlético Madrid after Hugo Sánchez left for Real Madrid, netting 21 league goals in two seasons, helping the club to the Copa del Rey and the Supercopa de España, both in 1985. The illustration is meant to look like a tactics blackboard which also doubles as the dark background for the light source that has attracted “The Moth”.
