Juan Carlos Rodríguez Belencoso (born 1 September 1981) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Kitchee SC in the Hong Kong First Division League as a forward.

Football career[edit]

Born in Elche de la Sierra, Albacete, Belencoso started playing as a senior with amateurs Deportivo Rayo Cantabria. From 2002 to 2008, following a brief spell in Portugal, he competed mainly in Segunda División B, representing in that category Real Jaén, Mérida UD, CE L'Hospitalet and CD Baza.

Aged 27, Belencoso reached Segunda División for the first time in the 2008–09 season, signing with local Castile-La Mancha club Albacete Balompié.[1] He made his debut in the competition on 31 August 2008, coming in as a late substitute in a 2–1 home win against Sevilla Atlético, but only scored twice in the league over the course of two full seasons.

Belencoso returned to the third level for the following years, playing with UB Conquense,[2] CD Lugo[3] and Cádiz CF. He achieved promotion with the second club after scoring 14 goals, three in the playoffs.[4]

On 9 July 2013, Belencoso became coach Àlex Gómez's first foreign signing of the new campaign as he joined Kitchee SC in Hong Kong.[5] He made an impressive start to his First Division League adventure, netting twice and providing two assist in a 6–2 win over Sun Hei SC on 3 September.
