Club career

He dedicated his professional career playing for two historic Spanish clubs: Sporting de Gijón and FC Barcelona. It was at the latter club where he collected his only milestone trophies: the 1981 Copa del Rey, scoring twice to put away his beloved Sporting, on a 3–1 win in the final; and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup 1981–82 where he scored the winner against Belgium's Standard Liège in the final held at the Nou Camp.

He scored 219 goals in 'La Liga' (5th all-time), the Spanish First Division, captured the Pichichi Trophy five times, and is considered by many to be one of the greatest attacking players in Spanish history and the greatest player in Sporting de Gijon history.

International career

Quini played for Spain in the 1978 and 1982 World Cups, as well as the 1976 and 1980 European Championships.

Personal

He was kidnapped in 1981, being rescued by the police after 25 days.
