Football career

Born in Lebrija, Province of Seville, Andalusia, López Caro began working as coach before his 30th birthday, with clubs in his city of birth. His first job at the professional level arrived in the 1998–99 season, as he led UD Melilla to the first position in Segunda División B, albeit without promotion in the playoffs.

Lopéz Caro signed with Real Madrid in the 2001 summer, from RCD Mallorca B, being in charge of the reserve team also in the third level and achieving promotion to Segunda División in 2005.[1] He was promoted to the main squad in December of that year following the sacking of Vanderlei Luxemburgo, and his first game was a 1–2 away loss against Olympiacos F.C. for the campaign's UEFA Champions League.[2]

In the following years López Caro worked with Racing de Santander – did not actually appear in any competitive games[3]Levante UD[4] and Celta de Vigo,[5] being at the helm of the second side in La Liga for less than five months.[6]

In June 2010, after two years with the Spanish under-21s, López Caro moved abroad, joining Liga 1's FC Vaslui[7] and becoming the best paid coach in the competition's history.[8]He was relieved of his duties in October, after enduring a rocky spell in Romania.[9][10]
