José Manuel Aira Lindoso (born 14 March 1976) is a Spanish former footballer who played as a central defender, and is the manager of French club FC Sochaux-Montbéliard.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Ponferrada, Castile and León, Aira arrived at Deportivo de La Coruña from local SD Ponferradina aged 19, but never broke into the first-team setup during his stay, only appearing twice in La Liga.[1][2] With more individual success, he resumed his career in the second division for the following seven seasons, with CD Tenerife,[3] Racing de Ferrol (twice),[4][5] Sporting de Gijón[6] and Polideportivo Ejido.[7]

Aira returned to Galicia in the summer of 2006, moving to CD Lugo which had just returned to the third level after a three-year absence. He continued to be a defensive mainstay in the subsequent four years after which he returned to Ferrol, now in division four.[8]

Coaching career[edit]

Aira retired in 2011, being immediately named manager of his last club Racing.[9] He was subsequently in charge of Real Murcia[10] and Albacete Balompié,[11] leading the latter in their promotion to the second tier in 2017.[12]
