Football career

Born in Bailén, Jaén, Andalusia, Manzano's training career started in 1983, at the age of 27: he took charge of several teams in his native region, including Real Jaén, then in the fourth category of Spanish football.

In 1996, Manzano signed with Talavera CF from Segunda División B. During his two-season spell, he led the Castile-La Mancha side to a second-place finish in its group (1996–97), and a narrow miss on promotion (1997–98). His good work there prompted the interest - and signing - from second divisioner CD Toledo, which he helped retain league status, with a comfortable 7th place.

Manzano had his first La Liga experience with Real Valladolid, in 1999–2000. His new club finished eighth, and the season included a 1–0 win over Real Madrid, at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. For the following campaign, he stayed in the topflight, with Racing de Santander; in spite of a 4–0 home success against FC Barcelona, the Cantabrians were relegated and the coach was fired.

After helping Rayo Vallecano finish 11th in 2001–02's first division, Manzano signed for RCD Mallorca. Season highlights were another win at Real Madrid (5–1) and the conquest of the domestic cup, over Recreativo de Huelva.

Subsequently, he signed with Atlético de Madrid, qualifying the club for the UEFA Cup, as seventh. After the sacking of Iñaki Sáez as Spanish national coach, he was rumoured to be one of his possible successors,[1] but nothing came of it, and he took charge of Málaga CF instead.

On February 15, 2006, Manzano returned to Mallorca, after Héctor Cúper's dismissal, and continued to work with the Balearic Islands side in the following seasons. In 2009–10, the club won its first 10 home fixtures.
