Playing careerEdit

Born in Linares, Jaén, Anquela spent the better part of his 17-year senior career in the lower leagues, beginning and finishing with local Real Jaén. His professional output consisted of four seasons with Elche CF, which he helped promote to La Liga in 1984[1] by scoring ten goals in 34 matches.

Linares' debut in the top level of Spanish football took place on 1 September 1984, when he came as a second-half substitute in a 0–1 home loss against Valencia CF. He scored the first of his three goals in the competition on 21 November in a 1–1 home draw against CD Málaga,[2] but the Valencians were eventually relegated after finishing in 17th place.

Coaching careerEdit

Anquela started working as a coach with Jaén, acting as assistant. During the 1997–98 and 2001–02 campaigns, he was in charge of the first team for a total of 13 games, both times being relegated from Segunda División.

For the better part of the following eight years, Anquela worked in Segunda División B with Jaén, SD Huesca,[3] UD Melilla, Águilas CF and AD Alcorcón. With the latter, he ousted Real Madrid from the 2009–10 edition of the Copa del Rey, with the first leg ending with a 4–0 shock win;[4] he also led the team to promotion to the second level in the same season, which happened for the first time ever to the club.[5]

After two further years with Alcorcón in the second tier, leading the side to the 2012 promotion playoffs but falling short against Real Valladolid,[6][7] Anquela moved to the top flight with Granada CF, thus returning to his native Andalusia.[8] He was sacked from his post on 30 January 2013, after only seven months in charge.[9]

On 11 June 2013, Anquela was appointed at CD Numancia, agreeing to a one-year contract with the division two club.[10] On 30 November 2015, he returned to Huesca, replacing the fired Luis Tevenet.[11]

Anquela left the club on 20 June 2017 after missing out promotion in the play-offs, and was named manager of Real Oviedo three days later.[12] On 22 April 2019, he was relieved of his duties.[13]

On 2 July 2019, Anquela was announced as the new coach of Deportivo de La Coruña,[14] being dismissed on 7 October after just one win in ten league matches.[15] He returned to Alcorcón after eight years on 9 November 2020, replacing the sacked Mere.[16]
