Miguel Ángel Alonso Oyarbide, known as Periko (born 1 February 1953 in Tolosa, Guipúzcoa), is a former Spanish footballer and coach.

A midfielder, he is the father of two footballers (and midfielders), Mikel Alonso and Xabi Alonso. Both followed in their father's footsteps representing Real Sociedad, and the latter also played with great success for Liverpool, Real Madrid and the national side.


Playing career

During his playing career, Alonso represented professionally Real Sociedad, FC Barcelona and CE Sabadell FC. With the first, he was instrumental in back-to-back league conquests, and gained 19 of his 20 caps for Spain in the process; his debut came on 24 September 1980 in a friendly match with Hungary (2–2), in Budapest.

In 1982–83, having retired from the national team after the unsuccessful home World Cup campaign, Alonso joined Barcelona, being relatively used in two of his three seasons. He won the league in his final year, but only appeared twice. He eventually retired in 1988, with Barça neighbours Sabadell, helping it achieve promotion from Segunda División, and scoring 12 goals - a career-best - in his second year, as the modest Catalonians reached (and eventually won) the promotion/relegation playoffs.

Managerial career

Alonso started his coaching career immediately after retiring, mainly in the Basque Country. In 2000, after an unsuccessful spell at Hércules CF (second division, relegation), he had a chance to coach Real Sociedad, but only lasted ten games, after which he retired from management.
