Francisco 'Paco' Montañés Claverías (born 8 October 1986) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Real Zaragoza as a right winger.

Football career

Born in Castellón de la Plana, Castellón, Valencian Community, Montañés started his career in the youth ranks of FC Barcelona. He made his debut for the first team on 13 May 2006, playing the last 20 minutes of a 2–3 away loss against Sevilla FC.[1] He then moved to the lower leagues, with Villarreal CF B and Ontinyent CF.

In August 2010 Montañés joined AD Alcorcón, promoted for the first time to the second division.[2] He rarely missed a game during his two-year spell as the club always retained its league status, and scored nine goals in his second season.

Montañés returned to La Liga with Real Zaragoza, signing a four-year contract on 5 July 2012.[3] He made his official debut on 20 August, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–1 home loss against Real Valladolid.[4]


Spain U23


In 2010, before he made his debuts in the top division and thinking this was not a possibility anymore, Montañés contemplated quitting football and becoming a fireman, as his father before him.[5] Nothing came of it eventually.
