Sorondo began his playing career at domestic side Defensor Sporting.

His performances earned him international recognition making his debut in 2001.

He also won a move to Inter Milan in Italy in September 2001.

He replaced the injured Paolo Montero as captain for the Copa America and became established at the heart of Uruguay's defence.

He has struggled to establish himself at Inter but his height makes him a commanding presence in the air and, coupled to his excellent tackling, made him a target for other European clubs.
