Unai Vergara Díez Caballero, simply Unai (born January 20, 1977 in Portugalete, Biscay), is a former Spanish footballer, who played as a central defender.

Club career

After three seasons playing with modest outfits in the Catalonia area, Unai represented Mérida UD in 1999–2000's second division, where he produced a fine individual season (although the Extremadura side finished sixth, it was relegated for lack of payment to its players).

Subsequently, Unai joined Villarreal CF, which had just returned to the top flight. During three seasons, he was relatively used, also adding three goals in his first top level season. His first match took place on October 28, 2000, when he came from the bench in a 0–0 home draw against Athletic de Bilbao.

After a string of injuries (some serious), Unai had an unassuming loan spell at Albacete Balompié, being released in June 2004, and going on to represent Elche CF, UE Lleida (second division) and CF Gavà (third).

International career

On February 28, 2001, Unai made his sole appearance for Spain, playing 90 minutes in a 0–3 friendly loss against England, in Birmingham.

Previously, he represented the nation at the 2000 Summer Olympics.
