The Yellows No.14 is one of the team’s pillars in the middle of the pitch

Hard work and talent at the team’s service. Manu Trigueros is at his best with the Submarine this season, improving his attacking numbers, becoming a true specialist when playing decisive passes. He organises the play, given that his experience and neat footwork is key in the Villarreal CF engine room.

Aged 29, Trigueros has played 25 games this season for the club under Unai Emery. The player, formed at the Yellows academy, has a great pass completion rate of 88%, and has scored on goal and provided four assists. The Yellows No.14 is also one of the players who runs the furthest every match, with an average of 10.8km per game.

The midfielder has currently played the second most games for the Yellows out of all the current squad members, with a total of 349 games. 

He started the last Copa del Rey game against CD Tenerife, playing the full 90 minutes. Listen to Trigueros’ comments after the game, in Spanish, by clicking play on the main photo.
