Onésimo Sánchez González (born 14 August 1968), known simply as Onésimo, is a Spanish retired footballer who played mainly as a winger, and is a manager.

Onésimo was mainly associated with Real Valladolid throughout his career, serving the club as both a player and manager.[1] He amassed La Liga totals of 221 matches and 21 goals over nine seasons, which included the 1989–90 campaign spent with Barcelona.

Playing career[edit]

Onésimo was born in Valladolid, Castile and León. From the very start of his career, he had a reputation as an exceptional dribbler.[2] However, he was also often criticised for the one dimensionality of his game, the media often drawing attention to his wastefulness in front of goal.[3]

Onésimo's playing career began with his hometown club Real Valladolid, for whom he made nearly 50 first-team appearances before the age of 20. For the 1988–89 season, he joined fellow La Liga side Cádiz CF. His talent attracted the attention of Johan Cruyff, who took him to FC Barcelona in the following summer.[4]

Onésimo's time at the Camp Nou was an unhappy one: Cruyff, who disapproved of the player's partying, selected him only twice in the league all season.[4] The brightest moment of his time at the club was his dominating performance after coming on as a substitute in the second leg of the Cup Winners' Cup tie against R.S.C. Anderlecht, even though Barça lost on aggregate (2–3).[5]

Onésimo returned to Valladolid after a single season with Barcelona, and would experience both promotion and relegation with them in the following seasons as well as with his following team, Rayo Vallecano. In 1996–97 he moved to Sevilla FC – with whom he suffered another relegation from the top level – and returned to Rayo the following year.

After more than six months out of the game, Onésimo signed for Burgos CF of Segunda División B in February 1999.[6] He saw out his career, retiring at nearly 34, with CF Palencia, another club in the third level.[5]

Coaching career[edit]

Onésimo was named as coach of Real Valladolid B in 2006.[7] He left midway through the 2007–08 season to take charge of SD Huesca, whose manager, Manolo Villanova, had been appointed at Real Zaragoza.[7]

Even though he led the team to promotion from the third level, Onésimo's contract was not renewed,[7] and he returned to Valladolid's reserves in 2009 following the dismissal of Paco de la Fuente.[7] He turned the side's fortunes around as during 2009–10 they lost only one game under his management,[7] and this success ultimately led to him being promoted to the management of the first team after the sacking of José Luis Mendilibar on 31 January 2010.[1]

On 5 April 2010, after ten league matches – six losses and only one win – Onésimo was fired by Valladolid, with the team ranking second from bottom.[8]
