Luis Milla is one of the most famous and prestigious coaches and ex-players in Spain.

Luis Milla is one of the most famous and prestigious coaches and ex-players in Spain. As a footballer, he had a desirable top level career. A midfielder with touch and great game vision, left his natal Teruel very young to sign for F.C. Barcelona, where he debuted with only 18 years old. He played six entire seasons at Barça, with triumphs like a League, a Cup and the old ‘Recopa de Europa’. In 1990 he signed for Real Madrid, winning two leagues and a Copa del Rey. He finished his career in Valencia, completing his track record with another Cup and a Copa Intertoto, apart from helping the team reach the Champions League Final.

Just after retiring as a player he became a coach. First in Valencia and then in the successful Getafe of Laudrup, but then he went to the Spanish Federation, where he won the ‘Mediterranean Games’ and a Europe Under 21 championship, helping Spain build their famous touch game-style of today and ‘bringing up’ young footballers like Thiago Alcántara, Bartra, Rodrigo or Sergio Canales. In 2012 he left the Federation and in 2013 he started coaching Al Jazira from the United Arab Emirates.

In 2014 he became Official Blogger of Brazil’s World Cup for Vocento Group. He was also another football pundit for Canal Plus when League and Champions are due. He explains the strategies and tactics behind all moves and game plays. He had also worked for TVE. In parallel, he reviews the sports news through his twitter account @luismillacoach.
