† Appearances (goals)

Raül Agné Montull (born 24 May 1970) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a central defender, and a current manager.

Playing career

Born in Mequinenza, Zaragoza, Aragon, Agné never competed in higher than Segunda División B during his 14-year senior career. He represented Real Zaragoza B, Girona FC (two stints), UE Figueres, CD Binéfar, Palamós CF and amateurs Empordà, retiring in 2004 at the age of 34.

Whilst with Binéfar, Agné shared teams with his twin brother Vidal, and also acted as manager to the youth sides.

Managerial career

Agné began his coaching career at CF Peralada immediately after retiring, missing out on promotion from Tercera División in his first season. In 2006 he was appointed at former club Palamós, leaving the following year.[1]

In June 2007, Agné signed with Girona.[2] After leading the team to Segunda División promotion in the play-offs, he was sacked on 18 May 2009 after a bad run of results.[3]

Agné moved to Recreativo de Huelva on 1 December 2009,[4] resigning on 14 June of the following year due to "personal reasons".[5] He returned to Girona the following summer,[6] taking the club to a comfortable mid-table finish in the second level in his debut campaign and subsequently renewing for two years;[7] he was relieved of his duties, however, on 15 January 2012.[8]

On 10 December 2012 Agné joined Cádiz CF,[9] as the club neared the relegation zone in the third level. He was sacked on 18 March 2014, with the side still in that category.[10]

Agné was named CD Tenerife manager on 3 February 2015, taking over from Álvaro Cervera at the second tier team.[11] On 3 November, after 31 competitive games – one in the Copa del Rey – he was dismissed.[12]

Personal life

Whilst at the service of Girona, Agné walked out of a press conference in February 2011 following an away game against SD Huesca after not being allowed to express himself in Catalan.[13] This sparked a wave of solidarity on the internet,[14] and Catalan essayist Quim Monzó wrote an opinion piece on the subject for La Vanguardia under the title "! تحيا كاتالونيا حرة" (Arabic translation of the independentist slogan Visca Catalunya Lliure! – Long Live Free Catalonia!).[15]
