Manuel Borja Calvar Simón (born 2 April 1981), known as Capi, is a Spanish footballer who plays for Pontevedra CF as a central defender.

Club career

Born in Vigo, Galicia, Capi graduated from local Celta de Vigo's youth system, making his senior debuts with the reserves in the 2000–01 season, in Tercera División. Two years later he joined neighbouring Ponte Ourense CF, also in the fourth level.

In the 2003 summer, Capi signed with Real Zaragoza, being initially assigned to the reserves in Segunda División B. On 25 April 2004 he made his first-team – and La Liga – debut, coming on as a substitute in a 4–4 home draw against Sevilla FC. He scored his first professional goal on 6 March of the following year, in a 1–0 home success over Racing de Santander.

In 2006, Capi joined Segunda División club Real Murcia. However, after appearing only once in the first part of the campaign, he moved to Lorca Deportiva CF on loan, signing with UD Las Palmas six months later in the same predicament; after a third loan stint, with lowly SD Ciudad de Santiago, he was released in August 2009.

In the following years, Capi competed mainly in the third division but also in the fourth, representing Montañeros CF, CD Ourense and Pontevedra CF.
