Juan Carlos Pérez López (born 30 March 1990), known as Juan Carlos, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Granada CF on loan from S.C. Braga mainly as a left winger but also as a left back.

Known as El Galgo de Boadilla (Greyhound of Boadilla in English) for his runs and speed.[1]

Club career[edit]

Born in Madrid, Juan Carlos started his football career at the EFMO Boadilla academy, playing there 11 years from the age of six. In 2007, Real Madrid signed him to his youth teams.[2]

After two years Juan Carlos was promoted to Real Madrid Castilla, going on to appear in two full Segunda División B seasons with the team. His first goal with the reserves came on 8 November 2009, in a 4–2 home win against Gimnástica de Torrelavega;[3] on 28 September 2010 he was called up for a UEFA Champions League group stage match against AJ Auxerre, but eventually did not leave the bench in the 1–0 away victory.[4]

On 3 October 2010, Juan Carlos finally made his first appearance for the Merengues' main squad, playing 11 minutes in a 6–1 La Liga home win against Deportivo de La Coruña.[5][6] He added 32 games and three goals for the B-side, which eventually fell short in the promotion playoffs.

On 7 July 2011 Juan Carlos signed with fellow top-divisioner Real Zaragoza, from third-party owner Quality Sports Investments via S.C. Braga.[7] On 22 September he came on as a second-half substitute in an away fixture against Real Betis with the score at 4–1 for the hosts, and scored two goals in two minutes which eventually amounted to nothing, as the Aragonese lost it 3–4.[8]
