Antonio Amaya Carazo (born 31 May 1983) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Wigan Athletic as a central defender.


Football career

Born in the Spanish capital, Madrid, Amaya began his football career at San Cristóbal de los Ángeles. He joined Rayo Vallecano in 2002, also serving a six-month loan spell at lowly UD San Sebastián de los Reyes, in Segunda División B.

Eventually, Amaya returned, becoming an important defensive unit for the side, which returned to the second level in 2007-08, and comfortably maintained its league status.

Amaya signed for Premier League team Wigan Athletic on a three-year contract, on 14 August 2009,[1 ] and was joined at Wigan by Rayo teammate Mohamed Diamé a week later.[2] He made his debut in a 4–1 defeat to Blackpool in the League Cup on 26 August, scoring Wigan's goal with a header in stoppage time.[3]


Is the nephew/grandson of Carmen Amaya. Amaya's older brother, Iván, is also a footballer, and a central defender. Both represented local Rayo, and Iván also played for Madrid-based Atlético and Getafe CF.
