Miguel Ángel García Pérez-Roldán, commonly known as Corona (born 12 February 1981), is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for UD Almería usually as an attacking midfielder.

Football career

Corona was born in Talavera de la Reina, Toledo. A product of La Liga powerhouse Real Madrid, he never made it past its C and B-teams, being signed by Real Zaragoza in January 2001 but only appearing in 33 top flight games for the Aragonese over the course of four seasons, with loans in the second division in between (one full season with Polideportivo Ejido, six months with Albacete Balompié).

In 2006–07 Corona was loaned again, now to UD Almería, being instrumental in the Andalusia side's first-ever promotion to the top level and reuniting with former Zaragoza teammate Fernando Soriano. The move was made permanent for the following campaign,[1] and both players were instrumental as the club went on to finish eighth in its maiden season in the main category.

Corona scored his first goal in the main category with a header, in a 1–2 away defeat against CA Osasuna on 9 March 2008, his only in the season.[2] He continued to be a regular for Almería in the subsequent years, often starting but rarely finishing a match.

On 19 January 2011 Corona scored one of Almería's most important goals, in a 3–2 win at Deportivo de La Coruña (4–2 on aggregate), with the club reaching the semifinals of the Copa del Rey for the first time ever.[3] On 9 April, through a counter-attack, he opened the score for the last-placed team at FC Barcelona – his second goal of the season – but the hosts eventually won it 3–1,[4] and the visitors eventually suffered relegation after a four-year stay.

In the following two seasons in the second tier, Corona was an undisputed starter for the Rojiblancos, scoring seven goals combined. However, he was sparingly used during the first half of 2013–14's top flight,[5] regaining his starting position in mid-March 2014 and thus becoming the third player with most appearances in the competition for the club.[6]
