Rubén Torrecilla González (born 24 May 1979) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

He amassed Segunda División totals of 137 games and five goals over the course of seven seasons, representing five teams.

Football career[edit]

Born in Plasencia, Cáceres, Torrecilla started his career at CF Extremadura and broke into the first team in 1999, but only appeared in eight games in two-and-a-half second division seasons combined. He moved to third level side Novelda CF midway through both the 2000–01 and 2001–02 seasons, on loan without any success.

From 2005 to 2009, after another spell with Novelda, Torrecilla played one season each in division two with CD Castellón, Ciudad de Murcia, Granada 74 CF (created upon the disappearance of the former) and Alicante CF (freshly promoted into that tier).

In January 2010, aged only 30, Torrecilla retired from football, having been released by Granada CF after not being able to recover from his knee injury after a fourth surgery. He still contributed with two goals as the club returned to the second division after 22 years of absence.[1]
