José Manuel Aira Lindoso (born 14 March 1976) is a Spanish retired professional footballer who played as a central defender, and the current manager of Albacete Balompié.

Football career[edit]

Born in Ponferrada, Castile and León, Aira arrived at Deportivo de La Coruña from local SD Ponferradina aged 19, but never broke into the first-team setup during his stay, only appearing twice in La Liga. With more individual success, he resumed his career in the second division for the following seven seasons, with CD Tenerife, Racing de Ferrol (twice), Sporting de Gijón and Polideportivo Ejido.

Aira returned to Galicia in the 2006 summer, moving to CD Lugo which had just returned to the third level after a three-year absence. He continued to be a defensive mainstay in the subsequent four years after which he returned to Ferrol, now in division four.
