Juan Carlos Mandiá Lorenzo (born 17 January 1967) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a defender, and a current manager.

Playing career[edit]

Mandiá was born in Alfoz, Province of Lugo. During his 16-year playing career he represented Real Madrid Castilla (adding two first-team appearances[1]), RCD Español, Celta de Vigo – helping to a 1992 promotion to La Liga[2]CD Logroñés, CD Toledo and Córdoba CF.

Mandiá totalled 89 top flight matches over the course of seven seasons, going scoreless in the process.

Coaching career[edit]

Mandiá started a coaching career two years after retiring, achieving promotion from the third division with Hércules CF in 2005.[3] In 2006–07's second level he served as assistant to Míchel at Real Madrid's reserves,[4] as it eventually dropped down a level.

Mandiá then took the reins of the latter squad, falling just one point short of playoff contention in the 2007–08 campaign. After a second spell at Hércules[5] he was named Racing de Santander's manager, in late June 2009.[6] After a poor start to the season, notably only one point in the first five home matches, he was sacked by the Cantabrians on 9 November.[7]

Mandiá returned to active in late September 2010, replacing fired Gonzalo Arconada at CD Tenerife (five games, five losses).[8] On 23 January 2011, following a 1–1 home draw against UD Las Palmas, he too was sacked.[9]

In December 2013, Mandiá was appointed at second level club Deportivo Alavés, being relieved of his duties after only three months in charge.[10]
