Víctor Muñoz Manrique (born 15 March 1957 in Zaragoza, Aragon) is a former Spanish footballer, mainly during the 80's, and a current coach.

An all-around midfielder, he was best known for his great physical strength that helped him tire his opponents in the early stages of the match.

Club career

After starting off with hometown's Real Zaragoza, and being relegated in his first professional season, Muñoz was snapped by top flight powerhouse FC Barcelona, being a very important element for the Catalans during his seven-year stay.

He was also one of the first Spaniards to ever play in Serie A, with two seasons with U.C. Sampdoria. After a quick return to Zaragoza, Víctor (also known by his first name during his playing days) finished his career at 34, teaming up with former Barça teammate Steve Archibald at St. Mirren FC.

Since the mid-90's, Muñoz started working as a manager, and successively coached RCD Mallorca, CD Logroñés, UE Lleida, Villarreal CF and Zaragoza.[1] On 8 October 2006, he signed a two-year contract with Greece's Panathinaikos FC, becoming the 18th coach in 10 years for The Greens.[2] However, he returned to Spain in June 2007 to take over at Recreativo de Huelva,[3] from where he was sacked the following February.[4]

For 2008–09, Muñoz was appointed coach at Getafe CF, on 18 June 2008. Following a poor string of results in April 2009, he was sacked, making way to former Real Madrid's Míchel.

International career

Víctor was a regular player for Spain during the vast majority of the 80's, receiving his first opportunity on March 25, 1981, in a 2–1 friendly win with England, and going on to gain a further 59 caps, with three goals.

He played for the nation at the 1986 FIFA World Cup, and at UEFA Euro 1984 (in a final runner-up position, to hosts France) and 1988, retiring from international duty immediately after that group stage exit.
