Jorge Alberto González Barillas (born 13 March 1958 in San Salvador), popularly known as 'El mágico' (the wizard), is a retired Salvadoran footballer.

A striker gifted with superb ball-control skills (his talent being overshadowed by questionable behaviour off the pitch), he is mainly associated with Cádiz Club de Fútbol, while also representing El Salvador national team for well over a decade.

González was born to a family of modest means in the Luz neighborhood of San Salvador, one of seven brothers and only one sister. His older brother, Mauricio González “Pachín”, was a footballer who became well known at the local level.
