Abel Gómez Moreno (born 20 February 1982), known simply as Abel, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Lorca FC as a midfielder.[1]

Club career[edit]

Abel was born in Seville. After beginning professionally with Sevilla FC's B-team, he joined Andalusian neighbours Málaga CF in the same predicament, helping it to a two-year second division stint.

The following season Abel signed with Real Murcia, being instrumental in its return to La Liga after a three-year absence, although an immediate relegation would befall in 2008.

In the 2008 summer he joined FC Steaua Bucureşti, resigning after only four months with the team.[2] He returned to Spain and its second level by joining Xerez CD in late January 2009, still being able to contribute with 15 games (12 starts) to the club's first-ever top flight promotion.

Abel contributed with roughly the same numbers – although in a full season – as Xerez was immediately relegated back. In late August 2010 he moved to another side in the region and category, freshly-promoted Granada CF. In his debut campaign with his new club he only missed one league match in 42 (3,366 minutes of action), helping to a top division return after an absence of 35 years.
