José Antonio Martínez Cervera (born 10 June 1983), known simply as José, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for UE Olot as a right back.

Football career[edit]

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, José spent most of his career with Girona FC in his native region, representing the club in the second, third and fourth divisions of Spanish football. He appeared in 38 games in the 2012–13 season (including four in the playoffs), helping the team to the fourth position in the second level and scoring his first goal as a professional on 31 March 2013, in a 1–2 away loss against CD Numancia.[1]

In the summer of 2013, 30-year-old José moved abroad for the first time, signing with Cyprus's AC Omonia. He returned to his homeland at the end of one sole campaign in the First Division, going on to compete in the lower leagues until his retirement.[2][3]

On 26 August 2017, in the third tier season opener, José played the entire 0–2 home defeat to CE Sabadell FC, with his brother Ángel coming on as a second-half substitute for the opposition.[4]

Personal life[edit]

José's younger brother, Ángel, was also a footballer. Both shared teams in the 2010–11 season.[5]
