Juan Carlos Valeron
FACTFILE
Spain's Juan Carlos Valeron
Born: 17/06/75
Club: Deportivo la Coruna
Position: Midfielder
Debut: 18/11/98 v Italy
Rated as one of Spain's most creative midfield talents, Juan Carlos Valeron has been a leading figure in Deportivo La Coruna's emergence as a major force in Europe football.

Blessed with an impressive passing ability and the vision to unlock defences, he is also capable of scoring spectacular goals.

He began his career at Las Palmas before impressive spells at Mallorca and Atletico Madrid earned him a big-money move to Deportivo.

Valeron is a hugely popular player and has been one of the first names on the Spain teamsheet since his debut in 1998.

He played in six of Spain's matches in their qualifying campaign for Euro 2004.

Although he has been labelled inconsistent, when on song he has the skill to break down the toughest defences.


Did you know? Valeron suffered two Spanish Cup final defeats with Atletico Madrid.
