Pepe Claramunt formed, together with Di Stefano, the backbone of the Valencia CF midfield. Despite undergoing some difficult periods, he never lost that exquisite behaviour that made him a world-class footballer

Claramunt started as a schoolboy at the Valencia CF academy. Together with Mundo, his first coach and instructor, he took part in a tour around America in the 1965-66 season. He was only 20. But Claramunt wouldn't make his debut in an official competition until one year later.  He could play either in central or in right winger positions and was the first homegrown player to become the team’s captain.

Claramunt played at Valencia CF until the 1977-78 season. He was part of the team who won a league in 1971, reached four Spanish Cup finals and won it in 1967. He earned his first cap for Spain aged 22 and notched up to 23 caps all through his career.
