Paolo Montero (born September 3, 1971 in Montevideo) is a central defender with San Lorenzo of Argentina and the Uruguayan national team. He is well known for his poor disciplinary record and rough tackles, and he can also play at the position of fullback.

Prior to joining Juventus in 1996, Montero played for Peñarol and Atalanta. He had won five scudetti with the Turin club, which whom he left in 2005. Montero has been capped over 50 times for his country and played in the 2002 World Cup.

After ending his tenure at Juventus, he played for Argentinian club San Lorenzo. Nevertheless, his performance in this club has not fulfilled the expectations of neither the supporters nor the manager, primarily due to several injuries that have forced him out of the pitches for a big ammount of matches. Whether he will remain playing for San Lorenzo or not after June 2006 is still unclear.

In 2005 Montero captained his country in their bid to qualify for the 2006 World Cup in an intercontinental playoff against Australia, the country the Uruguayans defeated on route to qualify for the 2002 tournament four years before. Sadly for Montero he limped off with an hamstring injury during the second game in Sydney, and Australia qualified for the World Cup winning 4-2 on penalties. Heartbroken in defeat, Montero immediately announced his international retirement after the game.

Was said being Zidane's best friend at Juventus by Zidane himself.
