Previously... Roberto Fernández Bonillo (Bechí, Castellón, 1962) was a footballer who played for CD Castellón, Valencia CF, FC Barcelona, Villarreal CF and Córdoba CF during the 80s and 90s.

His achievements... He was considered one of the best Spanish midfielders of his time, winning the 1989 Cup Winners' Cup and the 1988 and 1990 Copa del Rey during his spell with the Azulgranas. In addition, he played for Spain 29 times.

After hanging up his boots... He retired in 2001 while at Córdoba and continued to work in football as a manager, starting with Valencia's reserve team and going on to manage Córdoba, Orihuela CF and UD Alzira. He has also worked for various media agencies in Valencia.
