Marcos Landeira Álvarez (born 2 May 1987 in Gijón, Asturias) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

Football career[edit]

A product of Sporting de Gijón's youth ranks, Landeira amassed 17 second division appearances with the first team over the course of three seasons combined. That total included three in 2007–08, as the club returned to La Liga after ten years.

In the following campaign, Landeira was loaned to third level side UD Melilla, returning to Sporting's reserves – also in that tier – in June 2009. He made his top flight debut on 17 April 2010, starting in a 0–3 away loss against Sevilla FC;[1] it would be his only appearance of the season, as the Asturians once again managed to avoid relegation.

Landeira spent the second half of 2010–11 on loan at Real Unión, in division three.[2] He subsequently returned to Sporting, continuing to appear almost exclusively with the B-team.
