Manuel Jesús Ortiz Toribio (born 22 August 1984), known as Lolo, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Hércules CF. A versatile defensive unit, he can appear as both central defender or defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Huelva, Lolo was a product of Sevilla FC's youth system. In the 2002–03 season he started playing as a senior with the B-side in the third division, scoring a decisive goal against Burgos CF which led to a promotion to the second level in 2007.[1]

Lolo made his La Liga debuts the following campaign, appearing in two matches during March 2008, the first being on the 1st in a 1–2 away loss against Deportivo de La Coruña. Earlier, in December, he had made his first appearance in the UEFA Champions League, playing the entire match in a 3–0 group stage success at Slavia Prague;[2] however, he spent the majority of the season with the reserves, being a defensive stalwart for the Andalusians whom retained their league status.

Lolo was loaned to neighbours Málaga CF for 2008–09,[3] spending most of the season as defensive midfielder and scoring home deciders against Real Valladolid (2–1[4]) and Sporting de Gijón (1–0[5]). In October 2009, already established in Sevilla's first team, he signed a new contract until June 2011;[6] on 10 April 2010, he scored his first goal as a Sevillista, in the 84th minute of a 2–1 win at former club Málaga.[7]

After being deemed surplus to requirements at Sevilla, Lolo signed a four-year contract with fellow first division side CA Osasuna, in late August 2010.[8] During his debut campaign, in which the Navarrese narrowly avoided relegation, he was used mainly as a central defender while also starting regularly, and also contributed with goals against Hércules CF (3–0, at home[9]) and RCD Espanyol (4–0, also at home[10]).
