Jesús Mendoza Aguirre (born 23 February 1977) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a left back, and the current manager of Trebujena CF.

He spent the vast majority of his 18-year senior career with Xerez, competing in all three major levels of Spanish football and appearing in 459 official games. In 2014, he started working as a manager, with the same club.

Football career[edit]

Mendoza was born in Jerez de la Frontera, Province of Cádiz. After starting professionally with lowly Racing Club Portuense, he moved in 1999 to hometown's Xerez CD: in nine of the following ten seasons, he never appeared in less than 35 games, being instrumental in the Andalusians' promotions to the second division (2001) and La Liga (2009).

In the 2009–10 campaign, Mendoza could only play 12 league matches as the team was immediately relegated from the top flight. He made his debut in the competition on 30 August 2009, in a 0–2 away loss against RCD Mallorca.[1]

In late 2010, 33-year-old Mendoza renewed his contract with his main club for a further season, whilst accepting to take a pay cut.[2] On 3 July 2013, after dropping two levels at once, he left the Azulinos and joined Atlético Sanluqueño CF in division three,[3] retiring in January of the following year.

Mendoza returned to former side Xerez on 7 July 2014, being appointed manager.[4]
