Agustín Rodríguez Santiago, simply Agustín (born 10 September 1959 in Marín, Pontevedra, Galicia), is a former Spanish footballer, who played as a goalkeeper. player.


Club career

Even tough he had already trained with the first team, Agustín, a Real Madrid youth graduate, was definitely promoted into its ranks for 1980–81. On April 4, 1981, he benefitted from injury to starter Mariano García Remón to make his first division debut, against UD Salamanca.

Agustín conquered the Ricardo Zamora Trophy for the 1982–83 campaign (29 matches, 25 goals), but was almost always only a backup, consecutively to Miguel Ángel, José Manuel Ochotorena and Francisco Buyo; in the final stretch of 1985–86, an injury to the second propelled him to the starting job again, and he appeared in both matches of the UEFA Cup final against 1. FC Köln (5–3 aggregate win).

In his final four years, Agustín partnered Fernando Redondo at CD Tenerife - his teammate would later play at Real Madrid - helping the insular side finish fifth in his third year and qualify for the UEFA Cup for the first time ever; in two consecutive seasons, his main club would lose the league in the last round after losses against Tenerife, to FC Barcelona. He retired in 1994, and had a brief goalkeeping coach spell with his last team.

International career

Agustín played Olympic football for Spain in the 1980 Summer Olympics, being a reserve in all matches.

The previous year, he helped the nation reach the last-eight at the 1979 FIFA World Youth Championship.
