† Appearances (goals)

José Carlos Granero Granero (born 27 May 1963 in Chella, Valencia) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a right back or a central defender, and a current manager.

Playing career

Granero spent six years with local giants Valencia CF, but was mainly associated with the reserves, his best output being 15 appearances in the 1984–85 campaign (seven starts). He made his La Liga debut on 15 January 1984, in a 1–2 away loss against Real Valladolid.[1]

Granero left the Che in 1986, then spent a couple of years in Segunda División with Recreativo de Huelva, playing no matches in his second season. He retired in 1994 at the age of 31 after spells with CD Alcoyano and Benidorm CD (Segunda División B) and amateurs CD Jávea, all in his native region.[2]

Coaching career

Granero started training with his last club, going on to work in the lower leagues in the following seasons. In 1996 he led Llíria CF to the first place in the Tercera División regular season (group VI), subsequently disposing of FC Cartagena, FC Santboià and UD Poblense in the promotion playoffs;[3] still in the late 90s, he achieved three promotions to the third level, with Ontinyent CF, Benidorm and Novelda CF.

In the 2007–08 season, Granero was in charge of Alicante CF as it promoted to division two after a 50-year absence. He was sacked after round 32 of the following campaign, in an immediately relegation back; he met the exact fate in the following two years, with SD Ponferradina.

On 18 October 2011, Granero was appointed at Deportivo Alavés in the third division, after Luis de la Fuente was sacked.[4] He continued working in that level in the next two seasons, with Real Oviedo.

On 28 May 2014 Granero was appointed as head coach of Veria FC, as the Superleague Greece club's director of football was compatriot Quique Hernández.[5]
