Laureano Ruiz Quevedo (born 21 October 1937 in Escobedo de Villafufre, Cantabria) is a Spanish retired footballer and manager.

Football career

Ruiz played for local Racing de Santander and Gimnástica de Torrelavega, ending his career at the age of 28 to become a fulltime coach. At the age of 15 he had his first experiences as a manager, and often accumulated duties whilst still an active footballer;[1] his first professional spell was with the former club in the 1967–68 season, being relegated from Segunda División.

In the following years Ruiz worked extensively in youth football,[2] being charged with FC Barcelona's cantera in the 70s/80s,[3] as well as the Generalitat of Catalonia's youth facilities.

In 1975–76, Ruiz was in charge of Barcelona's first team for six La Liga games, taking the place of German Hennes Weisweiler.[4] He managed three wins - including one at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium against Real Madrid on 30 April 1976 (2–0) - two draws and one loss during his spell, as the Catalans finished in second position; he was replaced by Rinus Michels in the summer, but continued working with the club.

Ruiz's other managerial stints with the professionals were with FC Barcelona B (1976–77, second level, relegation) Celta de Vigo (1978–79, top flight, relegation) and former team Racing Santander (1979–80, division two, 16th position).
