José Manuel Serrano Arenas (born 17 March 1981) is a Spanish footballer who plays for CD Alcalá as a defender.

Football career[edit]

Serrano was born in Seville, Andalusia. After playing four years with local Sevilla FC's reserves, without any first-team appearances, he stayed one season with neighbouring side Xerez CD (second division), then switched to Levante UD.

After playing almost exclusively with the reserves in his beginnings, in the third level, Serrano made his first-team and La Liga debut aged almost 26, in a 2–4 home defeat against Sevilla on 28 January 2007. The following campaign he scored in a 1–5 home loss to Valencia CF, as Levante was already relegated.[1]

For 2008–09 Serrano joined Madrid's Rayo Vallecano, freshly returned to the second division, appearing in only 20 league games out of 84 over the course of two years and being released, after which he signed for Cádiz CF, returning to his native region.
