Óscar Arpón Ochoa (born 9 April 1975) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as an attacking midfielder, and the current manager of CA River Ebro.

He amassed La Liga totals of 141 games and five goals over the course of seven seasons, in representation of six clubs, including Barcelona. He added 230/18 in Segunda División, in a senior career which spanned 18 years overall.

Club career[edit]

Born in Calahorra, La Rioja, Arpón made his professional debuts in 1994–95 in the second division, with FC Barcelona B. Also, in that season's La Liga, he appeared in three games for the main squad, being promoted roughly at the same time as Roger García.

After a move to Real Betis where he appeared sparingly, Arpón lived his most fruitful years in the top flight with Racing de Santander, contributing regularly for two consecutive mid-table positions for the Cantabrians. From then on he resumed his career in the second level, with brief passages in the first (RCD Mallorca, CA Osasuna, Recreativo de Huelva).

In August 2009, after a slow campaign with Gimnàstic de Tarragona, Arpón moved to division three, signing with modest UD Logroñés. He retired three years later after one season in amateur football with CA River Ebro in his native region, aged 37.
