Jesús María Lacruz Gómez (born 25 April 1978 in Pamplona, Navarre) is a Spanish footballer who is currently plays for Real Unión, as a versatile defender.

Football career

Lacruz's professional career began in 1994 with hometown club CA Osasuna, then a second division team, making his first main side appearance not yet 17, and in 1997 he joined Athletic Club Bilbao, where he made his first division debut in a 1–0 home win against Atlético Madrid, on 13 September; he was a regular starter for the Basque in six of his nine seasons.

In 2000, he formed part of the Spanish squad that won the silver medal at the Sydney Olympic Games, losing the final to Cameroon.

After nine seasons with Bilbao, Lacruz moved to RCD Espanyol in 2006, for 300,000. He scored his first goal for his new club against A.S. Livorno Calcio in a UEFA Cup match. In the same competition, he added another in a 2-1 away win with SV Werder Bremen, as the Catalan side lost the final to Sevilla FC.

On 14 January 2010, having spent the first months of the new campaign unattached, Lacruz signed with modest Real Unión on a free transfer, until the end of the second division season, returning to the Basque region after three 1/2 years.
