The captain of the Levante UD is the oldest player in the Spanish League. So says your ID, reflecting a whopping 38 years old on 15 July so throughout the season 2014/15 He will hold the record for being the oldest player to step on the grounds of the La Liga. This fact, It occurs after the withdrawal of the other veterans who accompanied him and we tell you last summer in this article. Only the player has managed to hold granota a year in the elite.
Born in Valencia's 15 July 1976, He played in the Serranos, a football school in Valencia to move to the lower echelons of the Levant which coincided with another granota mythical as Ballesteros. It debuted at Levante 1995 Segunda B as a center forward but it was not until the arrival of Mané in 1996 when he was crowned granota left-back in the team and in Second Division. Then came his move to rivals of the city where he spent two years, his successful stage in the Celta with which became international and FIFA World Cup in 2002, Zaragoza, Besiktas, Ajax and AEK Athens to return to the Levant in 2010 Second and in midseason.
What no one expected is that half season would become almost five times and it would be the captain of a consolidated Levante in the Primera Liga with a very serious project. Even less he was going to wear the jacket granota Europe, where incidentally he scored the first official goal of the Levant in the Europa League as goals from the previous not considered goals scored in the competition. Twenty years later and with a privileged physical, will achieve the honor of being long, the oldest player in the Spanish Primera Division and apparently, he is here to stay.
