Pere Martí Castelló (born 22 January 1982 in Moncofa, Castellón) is a Spanish retired footballer who played mainly as a defensive midfielder.

Football career

Martí made his La Liga debuts in 2003–04 with Villarreal CF, featuring heavily as the side finished eighth and scoring his only goal in a 2–1 away win against RCD Mallorca, on 18 April 2004. He added nine matches in the club's UEFA Cup quarterfinal run, but was soon deemed surplus to requirements and left for neighbours Elche CF, in the second division.

After one shaky season, Martí became an essential first-team element with Elche. At the end of 2007–08 he joined Málaga CF, which had just returned to the top level; however, mainly because of injuries, he wasn't part of manager Antonio Tapia's plans in his first season.

In August 2009 Martí was loaned to Real Murcia in division two, appearing very rarely as the club was relegated. On 13 July 2010 he was released from contract from Málaga, immediately joining CD Castellón, freshly relegated to the third level.

On 4 January 2011, aged only 28, Martí announced his retirement from professional football, citing his multiple injuries as the main reason.[1] He subsequently rejoined his first club Villarreal, acting as youth coach.
