Agile between the sticks, great with his feet

Jesús Mariano Angoy rose through the youth ranks at FC Barcelona. He joined the first team under Johan Cruyff in the summer of 1994 after the departure of Andoni Zubizarreta. He was at Barça until the departure of the Dutch coach in May 1996 and ended that season helping Cordoba in the play-off for promotion to Division 2A. That same summer he gave up professional football to play American football for the Barcelona Dragons.

Full biography:

Angoy made his first team debut on 7 February 1995 in the first leg of the Copa del Rey round of 16 against Atlético Madrid at the Camp Nou. He came on as a substitute for Lopetegui after the Basque keeper had been sent off. But he had made his professional debut with Logroñés in the 89/90 season, where he was playing on loan. He would end up switching codes to American football as kicker first for the Barcelona Dragons and later for the Badalona Dracs and Bergamo Lions in Italy.
