This legendary striker for Barcelona Football Club started as manager whilst still playing for Elche. After a successful period with the club from Alicante, he decided to make his way to Saragossa
There, he was enormously successful, even playing in a Cup final against Barça. This, added to the promising career he had shown up to then, did not pass unnoticed by the Board of Barcelona Football Club, and he was signed as manager in the 1963-64 season. However, with Barça, the luck which he had had with other teams deserted him and, after a season and a half on the manager's bench, he resigned.
