Club careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Sebastian Tagliabué started his football career at modest Primera C side Club Atletico Colegiales from 2003 to 2008. Sebastián found it difficult to be recognized by teams in top divisions, however, after being essential in achieving the Primera C (fourth tier) championship with Colegiales, Taglibué drew the attention of other teams. He was surprisingly signed abroad, by Everton from the Primera División de Chile. Taglibué made his debut for Everton in a 5–5 draw against Deportes La Serena, where he scored three goals. After a spell at Everton where he scored 6 times in 13 matches Tagliabué moved to Deportes La Serena. At Deportes La Serena Taglibué scored 13 times in 27 matches and after one year, in 2010, he moved to Once Caldas where he was able to participate in the 2010 Copa Libertadores.

Saudi ArabiaEdit

After his unsuccessful spell at Colombia, Tagliabué moved overseas to Saudi Arabia after being approached by Saudi team Al-Ittifaq. Taglibué enjoyed a successful stint at the club where he scored 21 times in 44 matches from 2010 to 2012. His goal capacity drag the attention from Saudi giants Al-Shabab, who signed him in mid-2012.
