A committed defensive midfielder, he scored six goals in 60 international appearances between 1982 and 1992.
• Began coaching career at Cannes in 1992 but was soon at the helm of his beloved PSG, where he had won the 1985/86 Ligue 1 title and two French Cups during his playing days.
• In two seasons Fernández led PSG to glory in the French Cup, French League Cup and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. He also guided them to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, but it was not enough to keep his job and he moved to Spain with Athletic Club.
