Daniel Solsona is a Spanish attacking midfielder who began his professional career in earnest with Espanyol Barcelona in 1970. A very good playmaker, he would spend eight seasons playing for the Catalan outfit, making over 230 appearances. In 1978, he signed for Valencia, with whom he won his first trophies, the Spanish Cup in 1979 and the Cup-Winners Cup in 1980. After 5 seasons with the club, he left Spain to play in France at SC Bastia in Corsica. He would spend three seasons on the Mediterranean island, with over 80 matches under his belt. With his playing career in its final stages, he accepted - aged 34 - a final challenge by joining Stade Rennais in 1986. He would only spend a single season in Rennes, making just over 20 appearances for the Red and Blacks. Rennes were relegated at the end of the 1986/1987 season, and Solsona was released by the club. He then returned to his native Spain to play in their Third Division for Sant Andreu until 1990. After that, he went on to have a modest career in football management in his home country. Note that Daniel Solsona was awarded 7 caps in the Spanish national side between 1973 and 1981.
