Vicente Moreno Peris (born 26 October 1974) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a defensive midfielder, and is the manager of Mallorca.

He spent most of his career with Xerez, appearing in 412 official matches and remaining with the club 11 years. He also coached it for six months.

Playing career[edit]

An unsuccessful Valencia CF youth graduate, Moreno was born in Massanassa, Valencian Community, and he arrived to Xerez CD in 2000–01 after spending one season each with lowly clubs, also in the third division. Helping the Andalusians promote to the second level in his first year, he never played in less than 34 matches until 2009.

In the 2008–09 campaign, Moreno was an everpresent figure for Xerez as they achieved a first-ever La Liga promotion. On 13 June 2009, he scored one goal in a 2–1 home win over SD Huesca which certified his team's promotion.[1]

Moreno made his top division debut on 30 August 2009 – two months shy of his 35th birthday – playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–2 away loss against RCD Mallorca.[2] He also started in the third match, a 0–5 defeat to Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium,[3] but eventually lost his importance, with Malian Sidi Keita being preferred; at the end of the season, albeit only in the last round, the side were immediately relegated back.

In June 2011, aged nearly 37, Moreno retired from football after one more season with Xerez (28 appearances, three goals). At the time of his retirement he was the player with the most appearances for the club, also having been the only one to have scored for the organization in all three major levels of Spanish football.[4] He immediately joined the team's coaching staff.

Coaching career[edit]

On 5 December 2011, Moreno replaced Juan Merino at the helm of Xerez.[5] He managed to lead the team to the 14th position, ten points above the relegation zone.

On 4 November 2013, Moreno was appointed Gimnàstic de Tarragona manager, taking over for fired Santi Castillejo at the division three side.[6] On 22 June 2015, after winning promotion to the second division, he renewed his contract for a further year.[7]

On 13 June 2016, after finishing third in the regular season and only missing out another promotion in the play-offs, Moreno extended his link until 2018.[8] He announced he was stepping down on 24 December, however, and the club accepted it three days later.[9]
