Sergio Horacio Egea Rueda (born 21 September 1957) is a retired Argentine footballer who played as a central defender, and is currently the manager for Pumas UNAM.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Born in Necochea, Egea graduated from Estudiantes de La Plata's youth setup, after a stint with Cruz de Necochea.[2] He made his debuts as a senior with South Africa's Lusitano FC, before moving to Spain.

In Spain, Egea represented Hércules CF B, Elche CF, Recreativo de Huelva, UD Barbastro, Orihuela CF and Novelda CF, retiring with the latter in 1989.

Managerial career[edit]

Immediately after retiring Egea took up coaching, starting with UDF Sax. In 1995, he was appointed Real Madrid Castilla manager, leading the club to fourth position during his first season.[3]

After another stint at CD Toledo,[4] Hércules CF[5] and Real Valladolid B,[6] Egea started working with Hugo Sánchez, being his assistant at Pumas UNAM, Club Necaxa, the Mexican national team and UD Almería, only leaving in 2009.[7]

On 23 April 2012 Egea was named Estudiantes de Altamira manager.[8] He was sacked on 4 March of the following year, after a 0–2 home defeat against Lobos de la BUAP.[9]

On 13 February 2014 Egea returned to Spain, being appointed at the helm of CD Eldense.[10] After winning promotion from Tercera División with the side, he was named Real Oviedo manager on 6 July.[11]

On 13 June 2015, after being crowned champions of Segunda División B and taking the side back to Segunda División after a 12-year absence, Egea renewed his contract with the Asturians for a further year.[12] On 14 March of the following year, despite his side being third-placed, he resigned alleging "personal reasons".[13]

Personal life[edit]

Egea's sons, Lauren and Alexis, are both also footballers. The former is a forward,[14] while the latter is also a defender.[15]
