Antonio López Herranz (4 May 1913 – 29 September 1959) was a football striker and manager.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Madrid, López Herranz spent two seasons with local Real Madrid, appearing in only three games in La Liga during his spell and scoring in a 3–3 home draw against Sevilla FC on 8 March 1936 which was his debut.[1] The competition was not held from 1936 to 1939 due to the Spanish Civil War, and he played one year in Mexico with Club América during that hiatus.

López Herranz signed with Hércules CF, also in the Spanish top flight, in the 1940 summer. During his only season, in which the Valencian Community club narrowly avoided relegation, he netted braces against Real Murcia (4–0, home)[2] and Sevilla (3–8 away loss).[3]

Managerial career[edit]

López Herranz returned to Mexico at the start of World War II, and definitely settled there. He started working with Club León.

López Herranz was head coach of the Mexican national side in two FIFA World Cups, 1954 and 1958.[4] The team only managed to collect one point both tournaments combined, with the subsequent group stage eliminations.[5][6][7]

Death[edit]

López Herranz died in Los Angeles, United States on 29 September 1959, due to severe respiratory problems which even required the insertion of an artificial lung. He was 46 years old.[8]
