David Casablanca Poyatos (born 17 February 1977) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a left back.

Football career[edit]

Born in El Masnou, Barcelona, Catalonia, Casablanca finished his youth career at FC Barcelona, but could never break into the first team, also serving a loan at Levante UD during his spell with the former. After a two-year stint in Portugal with S.C. Freamunde and G.D. Chaves, both in the Segunda Liga, he returned to his country, joining Segunda División B club Pontevedra CF and achieving promotion to Segunda División in his second full season.

In January 2005, Casablanca joined CD Castellón also in the third level, initially on loan. He achieved another promotion immediately, as an undisputed starter, and continue to appear regularly the following campaign.

After falling out of favour (only seven league matches in two years combined), Casablanca left in the 2008 summer and continued his career in amateur football, first with SD Negreira then CD Don Benito. He retired in 2012, at the age of 35.
