Ezequiel Matías Muñoz (born 8 October 1990) is an Argentine footballer who plays as a centre back for Italian club Sampdoria on loan from Sicilian side Palermo in Serie A . His nickname is Il niño di Pergamino or El Chiquito.
At 18 years of age, Muñoz made his league debut with Boca Juniors during a 0–1 defeat to Estudiantes de La Plata during the 2009 Clausura tournament. He had, however, previously played with the team during the 2008 Copa Sudamericana. Subsequently, he suffered a cruciate ligament injury to his knee, which stalled his progression in the team. He returned to the field during the 2010 Clausura, during a 2–2 draw with Argentinos Juniors.
In August 2010, Serie A club Palermo announced the signing of Ezequiel Muñoz from Boca Juniors. He made his debut with the Sicilian club on 26 August 2010, when he was picked up as a starter in the return leg of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League play-off round against NK Maribor. He debuted in Serie A on 29 August 2010 against Cagliari.
On 2 February 2015, Sampdoria confirmed that they had taken Muñoz on loan.
In 2009, Muñoz was called by Argentine national team coach Diego Maradona for a friendly match against Panama in a squad exclusively formed with footballers based on the Argentine league. Nonetheless, he had to be left out after suffering the aforementioned knee injury.
