Enrique de Lucas

BornAugust 17, 1978

Enrique  de Lucas Martínez is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Celta de Vigo mainly as an attacking midfielder. de Lucas emerged through the ranks of RCD Espanyol, making his first-team debut on 15 May 1998 away against Real Valladolid. Subsequently, he became an important offensive element for the Catalans, appearing in 30 La Liga games and scoring four goals in 1999-2000 while helping the club to the season's Copa del Rey. After an unassuming loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain F.C. the previous year, de Lucas joined Chelsea. De Lucas then returned to Spain, having a huge impact at Deportivo Alavés, although most of his stint was spent in the second division. He netted six goals in 40 matches as the Basque outfit returned to the top flight after two years. After another season in the second level, de Lucas became Real Murcia's first signing after it achieved a top flight return in 2007. In August 2009 de Lucas had a trial with English second division side Blackpool. However, he signed with FC Cartagena – freshly returned to the second division – shortly after he scored the first goal of 2009–10, a 1–0 success at Girona FC. In late June 2010 de Lucas moved to Celta de Vigo, for two years.
