Francisco José Molinero Calderón (born 26 July 1985) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Real Betis as a right back.

Football career[edit]

Molinero was born in Toledo, Castile-La Mancha. After playing two La Liga seasons for Atlético Madrid (his first game being on 25 September 2004, playing 90 minutes in a 1–0 home win against Villarreal CF), in whose ranks he grew as a player, he served a second division loan stint at Málaga CF.

In July 2007, Molinero was sold to RCD Mallorca: he appeared sparingly throughout the season, moving the following campaign to Levante UD, freshly relegated to the second level.

On 21 July 2009 he signed with Romania's FC Dinamo București, leaving Spain for the first time in his career. He spent only one year in Liga I, however, cancelling his contract in the summer and returning to his country, joining division two club SD Huesca.

On 6 July 2011, Molinero signed with Real Murcia for three years. On 26 June 2014, after being an undisputed starter for the latter, he moved to Real Betis also in the second level.
