Manuel Sanchís Martínez (born 26 March 1938) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a defender.

Like his son, Manuel, he represented Real Madrid and Spain. They were one of only three father/son pairs to have won the European Cup/Champions League (the others being Cesare and Paolo Maldini and Carles and Sergio Busquets), and he played in 213 La Liga games over the course of ten seasons.

An international during nearly two years, Sanchís appeared with the national team at the 1966 World Cup.

Football career[edit]

Sanchís was born in Alberique, Valencia. During his career he represented CD Condal, Real Valladolid, Real Madrid and Córdoba CF, and he was a member of the successful Madrid sides in the mid-60's that won four La Liga championships in five years, with the addition of the 1965–66 edition of the European Cup (in this competition, he appeared 35 times for the Merengues[1]).

Sanchís gained 11 caps for Spain, and represented the nation at the 1966 FIFA World Cup. During the group stages, he scored a rare goal in a 2–1 win against Switzerland.[2]

Subsequently Sanchís had a career as a coach. After starting with Real Madrid's youths he also managed CD Tenerife in the second division, before taking the reins of the Equatorial Guinea national football team.[3] As the nation was immerse in a situation that would lead to the coup d'état against Francisco Macías Nguema, the sporting facilities in the country suffered from a deep lack of investment, and he eventually left his post and returned to his country;[2] he subsequently worked with lowly AD Parla, Daimiel CF and CD Don Benito, mainly in the Community of Madrid.
