Josep Seguer Sans (6 May 1923 – 1 January 2014) was a Spanish football defender and manager.

Playing career

Born in Parets del Vallès, Barcelona, Catalonia, Seguer played 14 La Liga seasons with FC Barcelona, becoming a senior in 1942 and being immediately loaned to neighbours EC Granollers. During his spell with his main club he appeared in 470 games all competitions comprised, scoring 133 goals and being part of the Cinc Copes (Five Cups) squads, dubbed as such due to the five titles won during the 1952–53 campaign, including the domestic double.[1]

Seguer won four caps for Spain, all in 1952. He made his debut on 1 June in a 6–0 friendly win with the Republic of Ireland, in Madrid.[2] He closed out his career in 1961 at 38 after player-coach spells with Real Betis and CE Manresa, the latter in his native region.[3]

Manager career

In 1961 Seguer became a full-time manager, his first job being with the amateur teams of Barcelona. For the following two decades he worked at every level of Spanish football,[4] coaching professionally with Betis, UE Lleida, Barcelona, FC Barcelona B[5] and Terrassa FC.

With the Blaugrana's main squad, Seguer acted as caretaker manager between Salvador Artigas and English Vic Buckingham,[6] being in charge for 13 official games and winning six including his last, 1–0 at home over Real Madrid on 28 December 1969.[7]

Death

Seguer died on 1 January 2014 in Reus, Province of Tarragona. He was 90 years old.[1]
