Midfielder made at the Miniestadi

Midfielder who came out of the Barça reserves, and one of the most promising of a glorious generation. Joined the first team in the Dream Team era, up against some top players and stiff competition for every position. Despite his skill and accuracy with the ball he didn’t get too many chances and played very little. After one season in the first team, 1994-95, he left for Betis, embarking on a career that saw him hop between a number of teams in the first and second division until retiring at Logroñés in 2011.

Full biography:

He soon outgrew the Mini, with his qualities taking him to the Camp Nou in the 94-95 season. But Arpón rarely got the chance to show what he could do in a team with such talented and experienced midfielders. His senior debut came towards the end of the campaign on May 6 at Riazor, a 1-0 loss for Barça. That season he would play two more games in La Liga. At home against Celta and away at the legendary Las Gaunas versus Logroñés. Curiously that was the team where he would finish up retiring in 2011. Between Barça and Logroñés, Arpón was at several teams in the first and second division: Betis, Racing Santander, Mallorca, Osasuna, Poli Ejido, Recreativo Huelva, Salamanca and Nàstic Tarragona.
