Iván González López (born 15 February 1988), sometimes just Iván, is a Spanish footballer who plays for FC Erzgebirge Aue in the 2. Bundesliga, mainly as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Málaga[edit]

Born in Torremolinos, Province of Málaga, González finished his football grooming with local Málaga CF, and made his first-team – and La Liga – debut on 22 November 2009, at home against Real Zaragoza, and made immediate impact as he rescued the Andalusia side from defeat by scoring with his head in the 74th minute, in a 1–1 draw.[1]

From then onwards he became a defensive mainstay in Juan Ramón López Muñiz's side, soon attracting interest from the likes of Real Madrid,[2] Atlético Madrid,[2] Liverpool[3][4] and Hull City.[3]

Castilla[edit]

After the arrival of manager Manuel Pellegrini, González appeared more as a defensive midfielder than in his natural position, but was also deemed surplus to requirements in December 2010, alongside five other players – he eventually stayed at the club. However, on 28 January 2011, he was loaned to Real Madrid Castilla in Segunda División B for the rest of the season and the following, making his official debut on 6 February in a 2–0 win at Pontevedra CF.

On 11 September 2011, in a match against Coruxo FC, Iván scored his first goal for Castilla, also being sent off in the match, a 1–1 away draw.[5] The following month, on 16 October, he again received his marching orders, now in a 0–1 away loss against Rayo Vallecano B.

After his loan stint at Castilla, González returned to Málaga, but his remaining one-year contract was terminated and again signed with Castilla.[6]

Erzgebirge Aue[edit]

On 20 September 2013 he joined 2. Bundesliga side FC Erzgebirge Aue, signing a two-year contract and being given the number 32 shirt.[7]

International career[edit]

On 6 August 2010 González was called by coach Luis Milla to the Spanish under-21 team, for the 2011 UEFA European Football Championship qualifier against Finland.[8]
