Julián Cerdá Vicente (born 9 August 1981), known as Juli, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Córdoba CF as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Alcoy, Province of Alicante, Juli began his career with hometown's CD Alcoyano in Tercera División. In the following three seasons he played with two clubs in Segunda División B, achieving promotion in 2005 with CD Castellón; he stayed in the category nonetheless, representing Benidorm CF and scoring a career-best eight goals in 33 games in his second and final year.

In the 2007–08 campaign, at already 26, Juli made his Segunda División debuts, with Polideportivo Ejido. He only missed only one league match out of 42 in his first year and netted on five occasions, but the Andalusians were relegated.

Juli returned to the second level for 2009–10, helping the Valencian Community club contend for promotion until the last weeks of competition – eventually ranking sixth – with the player scoring six goals. In the ensuing summer he signed for Rayo Vallecano, starting in eight of the league games he appeared in (a total of 894 minutes of action) as the Madrid outskirts team finished second and returned to La Liga, after eight years.

Juli subsequently represented Asteras Tripoli FC (Superleague Greece), AD Alcorcón and Deportivo Alavés. With the latter, he achieved another promotion to the top flight in 2016, being an ever-present figure with 40 appearances and four goals.

On 28 June 2016, Juli terminated his contract with the Basque club and signed for Córdoba CF early into the following month.
