The biographer of Club Deportivo and Málaga Club de Fútbol passed away this week at 83 years of age, but his work, anecdotes and his contribution to the Blue and Whites will live on forever. Juan Cortés was the only one to tell the Málaga story of a sport with which he will always be a part of.

Málaga Club de Fútbol sends deepest condolences to the family and friends of Juan Cortés, who passed away this afternoon aged 83. Cortés was a dedicated journalist who played a fundamental role in the development of ‘Malagueño’ footballing history, under all of Málaga’s team names. General Secretary and manager of CD Málaga, Juan Cortés knew better than anyone how to transmit the ‘Malaguista’ history due to his amazing memory. It’s because of this, and Málaga CF’s deep sense of loss following the death of Juan Cortés, that he will remain an eternal part of Blue and Whites’ history.
