FORMER footballer Eneko Fernandez once played under Pep Guardiola and now he is a MasterChef champion.
The 39-year-old won the eleventh edition of MasterChef Spain and celebrated afterwards with his wife and kids.
Fernandez played for a host of clubs including Barcelona B in the single season they were managed by club icon Guardiola.
He played 19 games in 2007-08, scoring once before a move to Ejea.
The right-winger also had spells at Alaves, Sabadell, Oviedo, Tudelano and Zaragoza B.
And while his footballing career never took off, Fernandez proved he has other talents up his sleeve.

"It has been the experience of my life."
Fernandez received a trophy as well as an £85,000 cash prize for winning the competition.
