Juan Carlos Garrido Fernández (born 29 March 1969) is a Spanish football manager.

Football career

Born in Valencia,[1] Garrido started managing at only 24, his first club being local amateurs El Puig Club de Fútbol. In the 1998–99 season he coached CD Onda in Tercera División, as the side was Villarreal CF's farm team, a club to which he would be closely associated in the following years.

In 2003 Garrido led Villarreal's reserves – Onda was now an independent team – to a fourth division promotion, then was in charge of the team for a couple of months in 2004, also in that category. In late January 2008 he replaced sacked Juan Carlos Oliva at the helm of Villarreal B, eventually leading it to the 11th position in Segunda División B and achieving a first-ever Segunda División promotion in the following campaign.

On 1 February 2010 Garrido was appointed Villarreal first team's manager, following the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde after a 0–2 home loss against CA Osasuna.[2] On 26 April, before the season in La Liga was over, he was handed a contract set to expire in June 2011;[3] Villarreal finished in seventh position but, after RCD Mallorca was deemed ineligible for participation in the UEFA Europa League by UEFA due to financial irregularities, the Valencian took its place.

In his first full season at the helm of Villarreal Garrido led the club to the fourth place in the league, with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Champions League. The side also reached the last four in the Europa League, being ousted by eventual winners F.C. Porto.[4][5]

In 2011–12, Garrido and Villarreal could not manage one single point in the Champions League, and the team ranked dangerously close to the relegation zone in the league in that period. On 21 December 2011, following a 0–2 home loss against CD Mirandés for the campaign's Copa del Rey (1–3 on aggregate), he was sacked.[6]

On 15 November 2012, Garrido replaced fired Georges Leekens at Club Brugge KV.[7][8] He was relieved of his duties in September of the following year, replacing fired Pepe Mel at the helm of Real Betis two months later;[9] on 19 January 2014, after only nine official games and only one win, he was himself sacked after three consecutive losses – the last one in the league 0–5 at home to Real Madrid – and with the Andalusians ranking dead last.[10]

On 8 July 2014, Garrido was appointed at Al Ahly SC in the Egyptian Premier League. Late into the month, he led his new team to a 1–0 win against Séwé Sport de San-Pédro for the CAF Confederation Cup[11] which the club eventually won, also conquering the Egyptian Super Cup; on 3 May 2015, however, he was relieved of his duties.[12][13]
