Diego Rodríguez Fernández (born 20 April 1960 in La Orotava, Tenerife), just Diego, is a former Spanish footballer who played as a central defender.

During his professional career, which spanned nearly two decades, he played for both Seville clubs, Real Betis and Sevilla FC.

Football career

Having started professionally with CD Tenerife, Diego joined Real Betis in 1982–83, appearing in 198 first division matches, with four goals.

After six seasons, Diego joined Andalusia neighbours Sevilla Fútbol Club, continuing as an undisputed starter almost until his final season, 1995–96. With Sevila, he added, in the top flight, 252 games and eight goals. He retired professionally two years later, at 38, in the second division, with Albacete Balompié, but still played well into his 40's with another club in his region of adoption, amateur Dos Hermanas CF.

In 2008, Diego began his coaching career, with Sevilla C, upgrading the following year to the B's.

International career

Diego earned one cap for the Spanish national team, on 24 February 1988, appearing in the second half of a 1–2 friendly loss with Czechoslovakia, in Málaga. He was subsequently picked in the nation's squad for UEFA Euro 1988.
