Juan Lozano Bohórquez (born 30 August 1955) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as an attacking midfielder.

Football career[edit]

Born in Coria del Río, Province of Seville, Lozano's parents migrated to Belgium when he was still very young. He lived near K. Beerschot VAC's stadium, and joined its youth system at age 11, making his senior debuts in 1974 at the age of 19 and soon standing out for his outstanding dribbling skills.

In 1980, Lozano moved to the United States to play for the Washington Diplomats, but soon returned to Belgium, being acquired by R.S.C. Anderlecht where he continued to regularly put on stellar performances. In 1982–83, he was instrumental in the Brussels side's UEFA Cup conquest – a 2–1 aggregate win against S.L. Benfica – scoring in the second leg in Lisbon with his head.

In the 1983 summer Real Madrid bought 28-year-old Lozano whom, in spite of limited playing time, did net six times in La Liga, also winning another UEFA Cup. He subsequently returned to Anderlecht, continuing his success there as he came close to being awarded the Golden Shoe a couple of times.

On 11 April 1987, Lozano's career all but came to an end after a tackle by K.S.V. Waregem's Ivan Desloover, which resulted in a broken leg. He still won the Footballer of the Year award for the season, as Anderlecht won three leagues in a row, but would never return to his previous form.

Lozano ended his professional career with Eendracht Aalst at almost 35, playing 18 games for the second division side in the 1989–90 campaign. He still played some amateur football with Berchem Sport.
