Luis García Tevenet (born 8 May 1974) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a forward, and a current coach.

In a 13-year professional career, spent mainly with Sevilla, he appeared in 359 matches the two major divisions of Spanish football combined, scoring 70 goals.

Football career[edit]

Born in Seville, Andalusia, and a product of hometown Sevilla FC's prolific youth system, Tevenet made his first-team and La Liga debut on 2 January 1994, playing 29 minutes in a 1–0 home win against Real Sociedad. However, he would never be more than a relatively used offensive player, mainly from the bench.

Tevenet completed his football formation aged 23 when he joined Atlético Madrid B, appearing in five matches for the main squad during the 1998–99 season as a substitute. Subsequently he played during two years for UD Las Palmas (with a loan to old team Sevilla in between, in the second division), scoring five goals in 28 games in his last year – only nine starts – as the Canary Islands club suffered top flight relegation.

After that Tevenet competed mostly in the second and third levels, for Polideportivo Ejido, Algeciras CF, CD Numancia (with a brief top division return in the 2004–05 campaign) and UE Lleida. For 2007–08 he joined Orihuela CF where, after a season and a half, retired and became the new coach of the team. In late 2009, he managed Jerez Industrial CF in the third division for only a month before quitting due to the team's financial problems.[1]

In late March 2010, following former Sevilla teammate Manolo Jiménez's dismissal as coach, Tevenet returned to the club, being appointed assistant manager and leaving his post in September after Antonio Álvarez's sacking.

Tevenet then returned to the bronze category with CD San Roque de Lepe in 2011, leaving after one year. He then signed for UCAM Murcia CF, halfway through a season that ended in relegation.[2] Tevenet remained in the Region of Murcia in 2013–14 at FC Cartagena, leaving after a 5–1 aggregate defeat to Real Avilés in the promotion playoffs.[3]

On 29 June 2014, Tevenet was appointed manager of SD Huesca.[4] He led the Aragonese to first place in their group, and promotion via a 3–1 aggregate win over Huracán Valencia CF in the playoffs.[5] He was sacked on 30 November after a run of four consecutive defeats in the second division.[6]
