Luis Manuel Villa López (born 11 August 1989), commonly known as Luisma, is a Spanish footballer who plays for Arenas Club de Getxo as a midfielder.


Football career

Born in Noja, Cantabria, Luisma came through the youth system at Racing de Santander. He was mainly registered with the B-team during his three-year spell with the club, appearing in three La Liga matches as a substitute in three different seasons; his debut in the competition came on 1 September 2007, when he played five minutes after replacing Gonzalo Colsa in a 1–1 away draw against Real Zaragoza.

Released in 2010, Luisma took his game to Segunda División B, where he represented in quick succession Real Unión, Deportivo Alavés, SD Amorebieta and SD Noja. He reached the promotion playoffs to Segunda División with the first and third sides, but consecutively fell short.

In late July 2013, Luisma went on trial at Barnet in the Conference Premier, alongside compatriot Roberto Casabella. Both players had their signings confirmed on 3 August, and the former's first goal came on 2 November 2013 when he scored the game's only in a home win over Kidderminster Harriers, being also later sent off for two bookable offences.

Across his two seasons at Barnet, Luisma scored 17 goals in 62 games in all competitions. In his second season, he finished as the team's second top goalscorer and helped them win promotion to the The Football League as champions. On 2 July 2015, he left by mutual consent as he wanted to move back to Spain, writing a farewell letter to fans on his departure.

Luisma joined Arenas Club de Getxo on 15 July 2015.
