Playing career

Remón finished his football formation with country giants Real Madrid, but served two loans, in the third and second levels before returning in 1971. He then began an interesting battle for first-choice status with Miguel Ángel González, which would last for the vast majority of his stay (Remón would start from 1971–73 and 1979–81, and the pair would split appearances in two other seasons).

In 1972–73 European Cup quarterfinals against FC Dynamo Kyiv, in the first leg in Odessa (0–0), Remón's heroic efforts earned him the nickname el Gato de Odesa ("the cat of Odessa"). After only eight league appearances in his final five seasons combined, being third-choice for the side that won back-to-back UEFA Cups, he retired at almost 36, with more than 200 overall official appearances for the club.

Remón appeared in two friendlies for Spain during five months of 1973; his debut came on May 2, playing the second half of a 2-3 loss in the Netherlands.

Coaching career

Remón's coaching career started with the youth sides of Real Madrid. From there, he progressed to the B team, preceding his assistant coach Rafael Benítez.

Subsequently, he managed Sporting de Gijón (first division), Albacete Balompié, UD Las Palmas, UD Salamanca, CD Numancia (first) and Córdoba CF. Both of his appointments with first division clubs ended prematurely, when the teams were in a relegation position.

In 2004–05, Remón became assistant coach to newly appointed Real Madrid coach José Antonio Camacho, his teammate for 13 years. On 20 September 2004, he succeeded Camacho, who resigned his post just a few weeks into his appointment, when the team was in 8th place. Remón himself was sacked due to perceived lack of success by Christmas, and replaced with the former coach of the Brazilian national team Vanderlei Luxemburgo.[1]His Real record would consist of seven wins, two draws and four losses.

During 2006–07's second division, Remón succeded former Real Oviedo and Real Betis striker Oli at the helm of Cádiz CF, eventually failing to return to the first division.
