NEWS | 02/04/2019During his time at Real Madrid, he lifted two UEFA Cups, five LaLiga titles, two Copas del Rey and a League Cup.
Juanito was born on 10 November 1954 in Fuengirola (Málaga) and wrote his name into the Real Madrid history books during his spell at the club, which began in 1977 and ended in 1987. He racked up 401 competitive appearances for the club, scoring 121 times and lifting two UEFA Cups, five LaLiga titles, two Copas del Rey, a League Cup and a Pichichi Trophy.
Twenty-seven years after his passing, he is remembered in the seventh minute of every home game when the chant of "Illa, illa, illa, Juanito maravilla" rings around the stadium. As well as oozing quality and being a determined battler out on the pitch, Juanito was at the centre of some unfogettable images in madridista folklore, like the photo that captures him jumping for joy in the UEFA Cup comeback win over Borussia Mönchengladbach in the 1985/86 season.
