Cristian Castells Ortega (born 19 October 1984 in Sueca, Valencia) is a Spanish footballer who plays for CF Cullera as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

An unsuccessful youth graduate of Valencia CF, Castells spent most of his career in the third division, also having spells in the second with Polideportivo Ejido and Alicante CF (both ended in relegation).

In the 2012–13 season, at already 28, he had his first top flight experience, representing Platanias F.C. in the Superleague Greece. In January 2014, however, after only six official games in one 1/2 years, he returned to his country and his native region, signing with amateurs CF Cullera.

Personal[edit]

Castells' younger brother, Marc, is also a footballer. A midfielder, he also represented Poli Ejido, but spent the vast majority of his career in the lower leagues.
