Javier 'Javi' Guerra Rodríguez (born 15 March 1982) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Real Valladolid as a striker.

Football career

Guerra was born in Vélez-Málaga. After beginning professionally with lowly Motril CF in his native Andalusia (in the third division), he appeared sporadically for neighbouring Cádiz CF in the following season, after which he moved to La Liga powerhouse Valencia CF.

Guerra's stay with the Che would be quite unassuming, as he only managed to appear twice in the league in three years, totalling slightly more than ten minutes – in a 0–3 loss at Getafe CF[1] and a 3–2 home win against RCD Espanyol.[2]

Released in June 2007 Guerra resumed his career in the second level, with consecutive relegations with Granada CF and Deportivo Alavés (the latter already owned by RCD Mallorca, which also loaned the player for the 2009–10 campaign, to Levante UD).

In August 2010, after greatly helping the Valencian Community side return to the top division, scoring 12 league goals (second in the squad, joint-11th in the competition), Guerra left Mallorca permanently, signing a four-year contract with another side in level two, Real Valladolid, for free – the Balearic Islands outfit would only have to be paid if his new team promoted or decided to sell again.[3] He had a breakthrough season in his first year, bettering his previous best by 12 goals, and finishing second in the top scorers' list: highlights included braces against Recreativo de Huelva (2–0, at home), SD Huesca (2–0, home),[4] SD Ponferradina (2–1, home),[5] UD Salamanca (5–0, away),[6] FC Barcelona B (2–1 home)[7] and AD Alcorcón (2–0, home),[8] and a hat-trick against CD Numancia (4–5 loss, home).[9]

Guerra continued with his fine form in the promotion playoffs, scoring the game's only goal in the first leg against Elche CF, at the Estadio Nuevo José Zorrilla (eventual 2–3 aggregate loss).[10] He netted significantly less in 2011–12, but two of his 17 goals included one in each leg of the promotion playoffs against Alcorcón, with Valladolid winning 2–1 on aggregate and returning to the top flight after two years.[11][12]


Guerra's twin brother, Emilio, was also a footballer and a forward. He spent the vast majority of his career in the Spanish lower leagues.[13]
