Eduardo Llanos is a key person in understanding the professionalisation and modernisation of football player representation in Spain.
In 1987, he began his career as a coach and scout for CD Logroñés in the most glorious and unforgettable period of its history. Promotion and 9 years in the First Division being a reference team in Spain in the hands of Mr. Marcos Eguizábal.
In March 1991 he decided to turn his career around, creating the representation agency ASESPOR and starting to work as a FIFA Agent, as a sports consultant and in the design of humble sports teams and structures, achieving success. These are the cases of SD Lemona, CD Calahorra and Amurrio CF.
He became one of the first FIFA Agents at national level and at the same time the youngest of the first batch. Intermediaries such as Fernando Torcal and Roberto Dale came together in the old offices of the Royal Spanish Football Federation, Alberto Bosch 13 in Madrid, just like him, to make their profession official.
From 1994 to 2001, Eduardo Llanos began to grow both in terms of representation and business, opening the doors to international football in Europe and South America. As a result, he began to gain the trust of football officials.
In 2002 he began his work as a consultant in Levante UD under the guidance of Pedro Villarroel, achieving two promotions to the First Division, the promotion of the reserve team to the bronze category and what is more fundamental: the consolidation of the Club, both in the first team and in the base team on the national and international scene. He brought in coaches such as Manolo Preciado, José Manuel Esnal ‘Mané’, José Luis Oltra and players such as Fabio Celestini, Vladimir Manchev, Pablo Cavallero, Nino, Ze María, Frederic Dehú, Salva Ballesta, Manu Herrera and Carmelo Gónzalez, among many others. It was undoubtedly the prelude to the most important and recognised stage of Levante UD at the hands of Francisco Catalán.
