Agustín García Íñiguez (born 3 May 1985), commonly known as Agus, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for American club Houston Dynamo mainly as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

Agus was born in Bonete, Province of Albacete. After appearing in seven La Liga games for eventually relegated Albacete Balompié in the 2004–05 season, he was bought by Real Madrid for 600.000 and immediately sent to its B-team.

As Castilla were relegated from the second division in 2006–07, Agus, alongside coach Míchel's son Adrián, were loaned to another side in that category, Celta de Vigo, with very different individual fates. The former returned to Real's reserves for the 2008–09 campaign.

In the subsequent summer, Agus signed for three years with Córdoba CF, with his previous club holding 50% of his rights. In the following years, safe for one season in the Turkish Süper Lig with Orduspor, he continued competing in his country's division two, representing AD Alcorcón, RCD Mallorca and Albacete.

On 27 January 2016, Agus signed with Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer.[1]
