Luis Lucas Alcaraz González (born 21 June 1966) is a Spanish football manager.

Football career

Born in Granada, Andalusia, Alcaraz started coaching with Granada CF in 1995 at the age of 29, achieving two top-four finishes in the third division in his three-year spell but failing to promote in the playoffs. In the following two seasons he managed in the same category and region, with Almería CF and Dos Hermanas CF, suffering relegation with the former.

In June 2000, 34-year-old Alcaraz signed for Recreativo de Huelva,[1] helping the oldest club in Spain return to La Liga after an absence of 23 years in 2002,[2] behind champions Atlético Madrid and Racing de Santander. Even though Recre returned to the second level immediately, they also managed to reach the final of the Copa del Rey, losing 0–3 to RCD Mallorca.

Alcaraz then moved to Racing Santander, being sacked midway through the 2004–05 campaign due to bad results.[3] He spent the following two seasons in the second division, helping Real Murcia promote in 2007[4] but being immediately relegated afterwards – he was fired on 6 March 2008 –[5]and meeting the same fate with his following club, Recreativo.[6]

In the 2009 summer Alcaraz signed with another team in his native Andalusia, Córdoba CF (second level),[7] helping the side finish tenth in his first season. In late June 2011, he re-joined Almería – now called Unión Deportivafreshly relegated from the top division.[8]

On 3 April 2012, after only four points in six games and no wins, Alcaraz was relieved of his duties.[9] On 30 January of the following year, after a very short spell in Greece with Aris Thessaloniki FC,[10] he returned to his country and Granada, with the club now in the main category.[11]

Alcaraz was appointed at Levante UD on 21 October 2014, replacing fired José Luis Mendilibar after just eight rounds.[12] On 25 October of the following year, following a 0–4 home defeat to Real Sociedad, he was sacked.[13]

Personal life

Alcaraz's father, Felipe, was a politician and a writer, being a longtime secretary-general of the Communist Party of Andalusia.[14][15][16]
