Marcos Márquez Lebrero (born 23 July 1977 in Seville, Andalusia) is a Spanish footballer who currently plays for UD Las Palmas in the Spanish second division.

A striker, he is of Gitano origin.[1]

Club career

Raised through the youth academy of Sevilla FC, Márquez left the ranks of the club in 1998 for Atlético Madrid B, playing one season with the club in the second division. In July 2000, he returned to Andalusia, signing with Córdoba CF, where he went pretty much unnoticed during a two 1/2 seasons stay.

After stints with AD Ceuta and CD Leganés (both in the third level, Márquez moved to UD Las Palmas on June 15, 2005; from then on, his goals and strength on the pitch led to him being one of the most loved players of the team, while also captaining it on various occasions.

El Matador (nickname he received whilst at the Canary Islands) went down in the history of the club on 24 June 2006, as he scored the goal that finally promoted Las Palmas back to the second division, the game's only at CD Linares, after a pass from Nauzet Alemán.

Márquez continued to feature heavily in the subsequent years; in 2006-07, he won both the Pichichi Trophy and the Zarra Trophy, after scoring a total of 21 goals. After forming a terrific offensive duo with Adrián Colunga in 2007-08 (29 successful strikes combined), he was again the main striker in the following campaign, and added 21 more, good enough for third in the charts, although Las Palmas barely avoided a drop.
