Jesús María Pereda Ruiz de Temiño (15 June 1938 – 27 September 2011), also known as Chus Pereda, was a Spanish football midfielder and manager.

In a 16-year professional career, he played mainly for Barcelona, amassing La Liga totals of 197 games and 55 goals for four teams – including Real Madrid. In 1964 he helped Spain win the European Championship, being an international throughout the decade.

After retiring Pereda was in charge of several Spanish youth teams, namely the U20s and the U21s.

Club career

Although born in Medina de Pomar, Burgos, Castile and León, Pereda was raised in Balmaseda in Biscay,[1] and, as a schoolboy, he captained the provincial U-16 team. He began his senior career with Bilbao club SD Indautxu, where his teammates included veteran goalkeeper Raimundo Lezama and Miguel Jones – Pereda and Jones, and later a third club player, José Eulogio Gárate, were all controversially rejected by Athletic Bilbao because of their birthplaces,[2] with Pereda moving to Real Madrid and the others to Atlético Madrid.

With the Merengues Pereda only appeared in two La Liga games, scoring once in a 3–0 home win against Real Zaragoza as the team won the national championship. During his spell in the Spanish capital, he was also loaned to Real Valladolid in Segunda División – after falling out with coach Luis Carniglia[1]– returning to the top flight with Sevilla FC and scoring 11 goals in his first season.[3]

In the 1961 summer Pereda joined FC Barcelona, going on to appear in 293 official matches during eight years (104 goals).[1] During that time he won the Copa del Generalísimo twice, scoring the opening goal in the 1963 final, a 3–1 win against Zaragoza at the Camp Nou.

Aged 31, Pereda left Barcelona and joined Catalonia neighbours CE Sabadell FC, appearing rarely during the top flight season. He closed out his career after two second level campaigns with RCD Mallorca.

In 1995–96 Pereda had his first and only head coaching experience at club level, leading Xerez CD to the 11th position in Segunda División B.[1]

International career

Pereda scored six goals in 15 appearances for Spain during eight years. His debut was on 15 May 1960 in a 3–0 friendly win with England at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

Two of Pereda's international goals came at the 1964 European Nations' Cup, in which he appeared alongside Barcelona teammate Josep Maria Fusté: he scored in both the semi-final against Hungary and the final against the Soviet Union, as the national team won the tournament on home soil; in the decisive match he also assisted Marcelino in the 2–1 winner, although No-Do newsreels showed Amancio as the author of the pass.[4]

During 15 years, Pereda managed both the Spanish under-20 and under-21 teams, leading the former side to the second place in the 1985 FIFA World Championship in the Soviet Union. In 1988 in was in charge of the Castile and León autonomous football team for one game, a 1–1 draw with Aragon.[1] Four years later, he replaced Vicente Miera at the helm of the Spanish senior team for one match – he worked in his coaching staff as assistant – due to illness.[5]
