Felipe Miñambres Fernández (born April 29, 1965 in Astorga, León) is a former Spanish footballer and a current manager.

An attacking midfielder, he played 12 seasons in La Liga, his entire professional career, with Sporting de Gijón (two years) and CD Tenerife (ten).

Club career

A product of Sporting de Gijón's famed youth system, Mareo, Miñambres made his debuts with the first team during 1987–88, being an undisputed starter in the following season, where he netted a career-best nine goals.

In 1989–90, he switched to CD Tenerife, where he went on to be active part of the side's La Liga consolidation and consequent UEFA Cup participations. As the Canary Islands' outfit was relegated in 1998–99, Miñambres retired from football aged 34, and went into management.

He started coaching former side Tenerife (being one of four coaches during 1999–2000) then continued with Hércules CF, UD Salamanca, Alicante CF and UE Lleida. In 2007–08, he became Rayo Vallecano's director of football.

On 15 February 2010, with the Madrid side now in the second division but immerse in a sporting crisis, Miñambres replaced sacked Pepe Mel as coach.

International career

Between 1989 and 1994, Miñambres won six caps for Spain and scored two goals. His debut came on December 13, 1989, in a 2–1 friendly win over Switzerland, in a match played in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and he scored the winner in the 59'.

Miñambres was subsequently part of Spain's squad at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, appearing against South Korea and Bolivia.
