Julio Bañuelos Sáez (born 7 December 1970) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a defender, and the current assistant manager of Cypriot club APOEL FC.

Club career

Born in Miranda de Ebro, Burgos, Castile and León, Bañuelos was a Real Madrid youth graduate. He subsequently represented CD Mirandés, Real Zaragoza B, CD Maspalomas, CF Badalona and CF Balaguer, never playing in a higher level than Segunda División B.[1]

Coaching career

After his retirement Bañuelos was appointed manager at UE Lleida's youth setup. On 25 April 2001 he moved to Deportivo Alavés, also in charge of the youth sides.[2]

On 5 June 2006, after a spell at the latter's reserve team, Bañuelos was appointed at the helm of the main squad in Segunda División.[3] On 6 September, however, he was relieved from his duties after only two league matches in charge, due to "personal reasons".[4]

In August 2008 Bañuelos was named CD Mirandés manager.[5] After bringing the club back to Segunda División B at first attempt, he left the club in 2010.[6]

On 6 April 2011 Bañuelos was appointed at Burgos CF,[7] and after bringing the club back to the third level, was sacked on 4 October.[8] On 15 January 2013 he joined UE Olot,[9] being relieved from his duties on 10 June.[10]

On 23 May 2014 Bañuelos moved abroad for the first time in his career, being named Thomas Christiansen's assistant at AEK Larnaca F.C..[11] Two years later, he followed Christiansen to Cypriot First Division champions APOEL FC.[12]
