Manuel Fernández signs with the Barcelona Dragons to play in the 2023 European League of Football.
The Spanish Outside Linebacker (OLB) reinforces the defensive gear of the franchise. In addition, his physical and technical skills allow him, in many cases, to assume an Edge Rusher role to put pressure on the rival QB. Fernández has played in the elite of the Spanish competition with the Fuengirola Potros from 2019 to 2022. One of his best campaigns was two years ago, where he managed to accumulate 48 tackles and 13.5 sacks.
His great performance led him to pack his bags and head to Finland to sign with the Pori Bears in 2021. There he managed to reach the semifinals of the Miesten 1-Divisioona. A year later, he signed a new stamp on his passport to travel to Germany and sign for the Ravensburg Razorbacks of the GFL (German Football League).
“I’m very happy to be part of the Dragon family. It’s a great step in my career and a unique opportunity to continue growing as a player”, said Manuel Fernández after making his signing official. And he added that “I’m looking forward to being able to join and get to work with my teammates and technical team to fight for this championship. #FeelTheFire!”.
