Football career[edit]

Born in Irun, Gipuzkoa, Sergio Francisco spent the vast majority of his 15-year senior career in the lower leagues, amassing Segunda División B totals of 246 games and 70 goals for four teams. He represented mainly local Real Unión.

Sergio Francisco's input at the professional level consisted of 51 games in Segunda División with SD Eibar, Gimnàstic de Tarragona and Real Unión, and four in La Liga with another Basque side, Real Sociedad. His debut in the latter competition took place on 17 September 2000, as he came on as a second-half substitute for Edgaras Jankauskas in a 1–4 away loss against Celta de Vigo.[1]

Having suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in September 2008,[2] Sergio Francisco retired at the end of the 2010–11 season, aged 32. He joined his main club's coaching staff the following year, under Imanol Idiakez, becoming head coach subsequently with Unión competing in the third level.[3]

On 5 June 2014, after leading the side to the 15th place in division three, Sergio Francisco was fired.[4]
