Carlos Iturraspe Cuevas (born 10 June 1910) is a Spanish retired football midfielder and manager.

Football career[edit]

Born in San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa, Cuevas played solely with Valencia CF during his professional career, helping the Che to three major titles including the 1942 and 1944 conquests in La Liga, to which he contributed with 40 games both seasons combined.[1]

In the 1950s/60s he worked as a coach, competing in the top division from 1953 to 1956: after leading Deportivo de La Coruña to the seventh place he was in charge of former club Valencia as it ranked fifth[2] and sixth respectively, even though he did not finish the latter campaign, being fired in May 1956 after losing in the Copa del Rey to Real Jaén.
