Julio Cardeñosa Rodríguez (born 27 October 1949 in Valladolid, Castile and León) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a central midfielder.

During his extensive career, he played almost exclusively for Betis, retiring well past his 30's. He represented Spain in one World Cup and one European Championship.

Club career

Cardeñosa arrived at Real Betis from local Real Valladolid in 1974, and remained there until his retirement. Left-footed, he possessed great technical ability, which belied his thin physical build. He amassed nearly 400 appearances overall for the Andalusians, 306 in ten La Liga seasons, and helped the club lift the domestic cup in 1977.

Cardeñosa retired at almost 36, then took up coaching, mainly in the region; he started as a youth manager at Betis, and had two meaningless stints with the first team, namely in 1990–91's topflight - seven matches, with eventual relegation.

He returned to Betis in 2010, as part of newly appointed manager Pepe Mel's coaching staff.

International career

Cardeñosa earned eight caps for Spain. His debut came on 30 November 1977, in a 1978 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Yugoslavia, in a decisive 1–0 away win (90 minutes played).

He was subsequently picked for the final stages in Argentina; there, he notoriously missed an open goal chance in the group stage against Brazil in an eventual 0–0 draw, with Spain being eliminated precisely by the South Americans.[1] Cardeñosa also represented the nation at UEFA Euro 1980.
