José Manuel Casado Bizcocho (born 9 August 1986) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a left back for CD Numancia.

Football career[edit]

Casado was born in Coria del Río, Province of Seville. After starting his football formation at Sevilla FC he finished it at FC Barcelona, only representing the Catalans' C-team (soon to be extinct) and subsequently returning to his previous club, appearing two seasons for reserves Sevilla Atlético in Segunda División.

A defensive stalwart for the B's, Casado also appeared twice for the main squad during 2007–08, the first being on 11 November 2007 in a 2–3 away loss against Villarreal CF. In the following two years, after the latter's relegation, two consecutive La Liga loans ensued, both in Andalusia: first with Recreativo de Huelva,[1] where he played in half of the season's matches, and newly promoted Xerez CD,[2] where he appeared more but ultimately met the same fate, relegation.

In July 2010, Casado was definitely released by Sevilla, signing a two-year deal with Rayo Vallecano.[3] He was first-choice in his debut campaign as the club returned to the top flight after an absence of eight years; he continued to start for the Madrilenians in the following two years, collecting 29 yellow cards and two red in the process.

On 29 September 2013, still recovering from a severe knee injury which prevented a move to Levante UD,[4] Casado signed a 2+3 contract with fellow league side Málaga CF.[5] He made his competitive debut on 8 February of the following year, playing the second half of the 1–4 away loss against former club Rayo.[6]

On 30 January 2015, Casado was transferred to UD Almería after agreeing to a 18-month deal.[7] On 8 June, after the club's top level relegation, he was released.[8]

On 27 August 2015, Casado joined Championship side Bolton Wanderers on a free transfer, signing a one-year contract.[9] On 29 January of the following year, he left by mutual agreement.[10]

In late January 2017, after almost a year without a club, Casado signed for CD Numancia after a successful trial.[11]
