Life and career

De la Fuente was born in Talcahuano, [1] where he began his football career with Huachipato. He made a few appearances in the 2011 Clausura and the 2012 Apertura before joining another Primera División club, San Marcos de Arica, on loan. [2] He made only three appearances in the 2013 Transición before making another loan move, to Segunda División (third-tier) club Iberia, under the management of Ronald Fuentes. [2] He started 18 matches as Iberia won the 2013–14 title, before returning to his parent club for whom he made three appearances in the group stages of the Copa Chile. [2] De la Fuente rejoined Iberia for the 2014–15 season, but injury prevented his playing as much as he would have liked. [3]

After Fuentes took over as manager of Primera División club Universidad de Concepción, he signed De la Fuente. [4] He made 11 appearances in the 2015 Apertura and 9 in that season's Copa Chile, helping his team reach the semifinals, as well as appearing on the losing side in the 2015 Supercopa. [2] [5] Although he played little in the Clausura, he established himself in the starting eleven the following season, [6] and his performances attracted attention from other clubs. [7] [8] In early 2018, De la Fuente played in the Copa Libertadores for Universidad de Concepción against Vasco da Gama of Brazil: despite a 4–0 defeat in the first leg, he felt the tie was not over, [9] but, at 2–0 down in the return leg, he was sent off for kicking an opponent in the groin.
