Manuel Bueno Cabral (born 5 February 1940) is a Spanish retired professional footballer who played as a forward.

Club career[edit]

The son of a former goalkeeper, also named Manuel (1910–70), Bueno was born in Seville, Andalusia, and started playing with Cádiz CF in Segunda División. In 1959, the 19-year-old signed with Real Madrid, where he would remain for the following 11 campaigns.[1]

Barred by Francisco Gento at both club and international level, Bueno featured rarely for the latter club,[2] never appearing in more than nine league games in all the seasons except his last, where he also scored a career-best seven goals to help to a fourth-place finish. He left in the 1971 summer with competitive totals of 119 matches and 27 goals,[2] retiring from the professionals at the end of 1972–73 after two years – one spent in each major level – with Sevilla FC.
