Manager careerEdit

Born in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, Catalonia, Cano joined Getafe CF as an assistant in 1998, from Don Bosco CF.[1] In 2000, he was an interim manager during three matches, but subsequently returned to his previous role after the arrival of Gonzalo Hurtado.[2]

On 19 January 2003 Cano was dismissed by Geta along with manager Felines;[3] both also worked together at Badajoz CF. In 2004, he started up coaching, being appointed at EF Valdemoro, AD Parla and CD Colonia Ofigevi, achieving a promotion to Tercera División with the latter.

In the 2006 summer Cano was appointed AD Alcorcón B manager. In June 2008, after already being an interim manager for one match, he was named Juan Antonio Anquela's assistant at the main squad.[4] He continued to work with Anquela in the following years, at Granada CF and CD Numancia.[5]

On 3 July 2015 Cano rescinded his contract with the Rojillos, and was immediately appointed at the helm of CD Guadalajara.[6] He was sacked on 13 December,[7] and was named manager of Atlético Madrid's Juvenil A squad the following 29 June.[8]
