Málaga Club de Fútbol sends deepest condolences to the family and friends of Antonio Ruiz Robles (18/01/1940), the former ‘Malaguista’ who sadly passed away yesterday afternoon. Born in Beniaján (Murcia), Ruiz Robles played with Club Deportivo Málaga for five seasons, from 1964/65 to 1968/69. During this time the team was promoted twice to the First Division, in 1964/65 and 1966/67. Before joining the Martiricos Club, the striker played with Melilla and Real Madrid, with whom he won the League championship in 1963/64.
Former ‘Malaguista’ player, Justo San Emeterio Arraiz, known as ‘San Emeterio’, passed away yesterday aged 82. The Santander-born footballer, who moved to Málaga after he hung up his boots, first arrived on the Costa del Sol aged just 22, when the ‘Malaguistas’ had just been promoted to the First Division, before being relegated for a second time. San Emeterio was part of the Blue and Whites’ squad that defeated Real Madrid at La Rosaleda by 6-0 in 1952/53. The left back played in 13 official matches, scoring three goals. Málaga Club de Fútbol sends deepest condolences to the family and friends of ‘San Emeterio’ following his death yesterday.
