The former goalkeeper between 1986 and 2003, with 318 First Division games behind him, will focus from now on in the fight against this degenerative disease.

Unzué has been one of the technicians who has enjoyed the highest esteem in recent years. First as a goalkeeper coach in the FC Barcelona (with Rijkaard and then with Guardiola), his first foray as head coach was at Numancia between 2010 and 2011, before heading to Racing Santander before taking a step to the side and becoming second of Luis Enriqueboth in the Celta Vigo as in Barcelona itself.

Once emancipated from the current Spanish coach (he rang loudly to replace Robert Moreno later), Celta took over as first. His last team was Girona, who removed him in October 2019.
