Pablo Rodríguez Flores (born 8 March 1955 in Turón (Mieres), Asturias) is a Spanish retired professional footballer who played as a left winger.

Football career[edit]

Rodríguez arrived at Valencia CF from local giants Sporting de Gijón, going on to compete several seasons with the reserves. He made his debut with the first team on 8 April 1978 in a 7–0 home routing of Rayo Vallecano,[1] but would only appear in ten La Liga games in his first two seasons combined.

In the following four years, Rodríguez was a relatively important offensive unit for the Che, playing an average of 21 league matches. He contributed with six appearances and one goal as the club won the 1980 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, including the full 120 minutes in the final against Arsenal, where he also converted his penalty shootout attempt.[2]

Rodríguez retired in June 1986 at the age of 31, after one-season spells with UD Salamanca (Segunda División, team relegation) and Levante UD (lower leagues).
