Manuel 'Manolo' Martínez Lara (born 15 June 1980 in Bigastro, Alicante) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Levadiakos F.C. in the Superleague Greece mainly as a defensive midfielder – he can also operate as a central defender.

Football career

Martínez started his professional career with local outfit Hércules CF, as a central defender. After years spent almost exclusively in Segunda División B he had a brief spell in La Liga, playing three games for Gimnàstic de Tarragona and being released in the 2007 winter transfer window; his debut in the main competition consisted of 55 minutes of a 1–2 home loss against Celta de Vigo, on 10 September 2006.

Martínez then moved to CD Tenerife where he reconverted into a defensive midfielder, greatly helping the team return to the top division in 2009 after a seven-year hiatus. In the subsequent top flight campaign he played more often than not in his secondary position – stopper – and his performances were overall poorer, with the Canary Islands outfit being immediately relegated, although it would only be certified in the last round against Valencia CF (0–1 away defeat).

In August 2010, aged 30, Martínez did not renew his Tenerife link and agreed a two year-deal with another team in Segunda División, Recreativo de Huelva.
