Manuel "Manolo" Márquez Roca (born 7 September 1968) is a Spanish football manager, currently in charge of UD Las Palmas.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Márquez represented CF Badalona, CD Granollers, FC Martinenc and UA Horta as a player, retiring at the age of 28.[1]

Manager career[edit]

Márquez was started his career with Penya Barcelonista Anguera in 2002.[2] After two spells at AE Prat and one season at Tercera División side CE Europa,[3] he was appointed manager of Segunda División B club Badalona on 5 June 2010.[4]

Márquez took Badalona to the play-offs during his two seasons in charge, missing out promotion in both, however. On 31 January 2013, he was appointed in charge of RCD Espanyol B.[5]

Márquez was sacked by the Pericos on 21 January 2014, being replaced by his assistant Sergio.[6] On 4 November he returned to Prat for a third stint,[7] but was relieved from his duties at the end of the season after failing to achieve promotion.

On 29 June 2015, Márquez was named at the helm of UE Sant Andreu, also in the fourth division.[8] He was dismissed on 26 October,[9] and only returned to coaching duties the following 16 June, after being named UD Las Palmas Atlético manager.[10]

Márquez achieved promotion to the third tier as champions with the B-team, and on 3 July 2017 he was appointed manager of the main squad in La Liga, after agreeing to a one-year contract.[11]
