Profile

Born in Haro, La Rioja, de la Fuente graduated from Athletic Bilbao’s youth system, and made his senior debut with the reserves in 1978, in the Segunda División B. On 8 March 1981, he made his first-team – and La Liga – debut, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–0 away draw against Valencia.

Managerial Career

De la Fuente’s first managerial job was at Club Portugalete, in the regional leagues. In summer 2000, he was appointed at Segunda División B club Aurrerá, but was sacked in March of the following year in spite of a seventh place in the table.

On 8 December 2022, de la Fuente was appointed as head coach of the senior side, as Luis Enrique resigned following a round-of-16 penalty shootout elimination at the 2022 FIFA World Cup by Morocco. He was officially presented four days later, with a contract running until UEFA Euro 2024 with the option to be extended.

Due to his background coaching in youth setups, de la Fuente liked to work with younger players familiar to him and not high-maintenance. Mikel Merino and Mikel Oyarzabal won the under-21 European championship title during his tenure, and later represented the full team under the same manager.

He explained his philosophy by stating that “I come from a grassroots background. Our commitment, to the people we trust in the youth system, is not a pose, it is a conviction”

As of 2024, Luis de la Fuente Net Worth is valued at $5 million.
