Gonzalo Arconada Echarri (born 23 July 1961 in San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa) is a Spanish football manager, currently in charge of Real Jaén.

Coaching career

Arconada started coaching while still in his teens, with youth sides Juveniles de La Salle and Danak. His first twenty years would be spent with teams in his native region, mostly in the lower levels; after being in charge of the reserve team for several seasons, he coached Real Sociedad's main squad for a couple of months in 2006, being one of three managers during the campaign in La Liga.[1]

After managing lowly Burgos CF and attaining promotion to the top division in 2008 with CD Numancia, Arconada signed with UD Almería: after a preseason without defeats, he was sacked in late December 2008 following a 0–1 loss at El Molinón,[2] Sporting de Gijón's grounds, being replaced by Hugo Sánchez.

In the 2009 summer, Arconada returned to Numancia again in the second level, leaving his post at the end of the season after leading the Soria side to the eighth position. In August he moved to CD Tenerife, freshly relegated from the top flight, being sacked the following month after four losses in as many games.[3]

Personal life

Arconada's older brother, Luis, played almost 20 professional years with Real Sociedad, being widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the nation's history.[4]
