José de Jesús Arellano Alcocer (born May 8, 1973 in Monterrey, Nuevo León), is a Mexican former professional footballer. He last played for Monterrey in the Primera División de México, with whom he has played most of his career.


Arellano is known for his speed, dribbling and passing abilities, Arellano has played an important role for the Mexico national team for many years and has led his country to victories in several occasions. He was one of the players responsible for the erratic comebacks made by the Mexican team in the World Cup groups stage at France'98. Known as the "Super-Substitute", Arellano was brought in the field, in the late stages of the match, by Mexico's now retired national coach, Manuel Lapuente and help his country come back from seemingly impossible situations to either draw or win the games.

After his debut with CF Monterrey, he tried his luck with the "All Mexican Team", Club Deportivo Guadalajara during the 1998 Fall season. However, Arellano found his success with the "Rayados de Monterrey" club, helping them win the 2003 Clausura championship title in the La Primera División.

In the FIFA World Cup in Korea-Japan 2002, Arellano made a less of an impact as a substitute. He was among the starting eleven for three matches, where he helped his country reach the "Elimination Round of 16" of the tournament. In total, he has amassed 70 caps for Mexico, scoring seven times and was among 23 players selected by coach Ricardo La Volpe, to play in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Arellano played one match throughout the tournament and only appeared in the 2nd half as a substitute player in a 0-0 draw, against Angola.

Jesus Arellano is the seventh Mexican player and the first one to be born in Monterrey to play three World Cups: France 98, Korea-Japan 2002 and Germany 2006.
