José Mauricio Manzano López (born 30 September 1943 in San Salvador) is a retired football player from El Salvador who represented his country at the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico.

International career[edit]

Manzano has represented his country in youth team selections and the senior team in 5 FIFA World Cup qualification matches as well as in one game at the 1970 FIFA World Cup Finals.[1] He was injured in the first half of that latter match against Belgium, missing the other group games as a consequence.


After retiring as a player, Manzano left the capital for the countryside to work as an agricultural engineer for the Ministry of Agriculture. On his return to San Salvador, he picked up football again as a coach.[2]
