Lluís Carreras Ferrer (born 24 September 1972) is a Spanish retired footballer who played mostly as a left back but also as a defensive midfielder, and a manager.

He started his professional career with Barcelona, without much success, and went on to amass La Liga totals of 169 games and eight goals in representation of six other clubs. He also scored 25 goals from 149 Segunda División matches over the course of six seasons.

After retiring, Carreras became a coach.

Football career[edit]

Born in Sant Pol de Mar, Barcelona, Catalonia, Carreras was a product of FC Barcelona's famed youth system, La Masia. He made his first-team debut on 4 April 1993 in a 3–0 home success against CD Logroñés, in what would be his only La Liga match of the season.

After two loans with interesting playing time, at Real Oviedo and Racing de Santander, Carreras returned to Barça. Although he appeared regularly in 1995–96's league, the club came out empty in silverware.

Carreras then lived his most steady period at RCD Mallorca, although never an undisputed starter. He achieved top flight promotion in his first season, then proceeded to amass roughly over 100 overall appearances.

Subsequently, Carreras had similar experiences with both Atlético Madrid and Deportivo Alavés: after featuring regularly in the clubs' promotion from the second division, he saw very little time in the follow-up top flight campaigns. In between he played with Real Murcia in the main category, for one season.

Carreras' career would end on a sour note: when playing for the Basque side, he clashed with eccentric owner/chairman/manager Dmitry Pietrman; teammate Roberto Bonano, who stepped up in his defense, was also suspended.[1]

Both retired shortly afterwards and, as Alavés changed hands, Carreras returned to the club to have his first coaching experience in 2009, with the B side in the fourth level. In his debut campaign at the helm of CE Sabadell FC, he led the team to promotion to division two.[2][3]
