Ignacio Quereda

Date of birth: 24 July 1950

Club career: Real Madrid (youth)

Coaching career: CD Móstoles, Spain women, Spain Under-19 women

A Real Madrid CF youth product who won University Games gold with Spain in 1973 and 1975, Quereda went on to be assistant coach of that national side and also led lower-division Móstoles. But it is Spain's women that he has coached since 1988, making him easily the longest-serving trainer in the tournament, indeed in charge longer than some of his squad have been alive.

At one point, he also led the youth squad and it was they he led to victory at the 2004 UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship in Finland with a shock final win against Germany, who went to become world champions at that level. At senior level, their outstanding display was reaching the 1997 Women's EURO semi-finals but they have been moving back towards that peak, and Quereda is a respected technician, part of the UEFA technical team at UEFA Women's EURO 2009.
