Marc Bertrán Vilanova (born 22 May 1982) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a right back.

He appeared in 119 La Liga games over the course of nine seasons, in representation of Espanyol, Cádiz, Tenerife and Osasuna. He added 203 and six goals in Segunda División, with five clubs.

Football career[edit]

Born in La Pobla de Segur, Lleida, Catalonia, Bertrán began playing football for local La Pobla de Segur, as future FC Barcelona's Carles Puyol before him. He finished his grooming at RCD Espanyol's youth ranks and played once for the first team in 2001–02, going on to amass a further 16 La Liga appearances in the next two seasons combined. In the second part of the 2004–05 campaign he served a relegation-ending loan spell at Córdoba CF, in the second division.

Released in the 2005 summer, Bertrán split 2005–06 in the two major categories, with Cádiz CF and Lorca Deportiva CF. Subsequently he moved to CD Tenerife, being an undisputed starter from the beginning: in his third year he was a defensive cornerstone as the Canary Islands' club returned to the top flight after seven years, starting in all of his 35 league appearances and scoring twice.

In 2009–10, as Tenerife was relegated in the last matchday, Bertrán appeared in 21 matches, netting in the penultimate round – a 2–2 home draw against UD Almería.[1] However, having started and finished the season in the first eleven, he also missed almost four months of action, after a dangerous challenge from Real Madrid's Royston Drenthe during a 0–3 away loss in late September.[2]

Bertrán was again first-choice for Tenerife in the 2010–11 campaign, but the team suffered another relegation. In early June 2011 the 29-year-old agreed on a deal with CA Osasuna, thus returning to the top level.[3]
