Jesús Iñigo Liceranzu Otxoa (13 March 1959) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a defender, and a coach.
Born in Bilbao, Biscay, Liceranzu was a product of local giants Athletic Bilbao. After three years with the reserves he made his professional debut with Basque neighbours Barakaldo CF, in the second division. Upon his return in the summer of 1981, Liceranzu eventually became an undisputed started for the club, partnering Andoni Goikoetxea as stopper and being dubbed Rocky due to his hard approach. In 1983–84, as Athletic renewed its domestic supremacy, he scored a career-best seven goals in 32 matches; on 29 April 1984, he found the net twice in a Basque Derby home win against Real Sociedad (his second meaning the final 2–1, and the club's 3000th goal in La Liga). Liceranzu retired from football in 1989 at only 30, after one season with Elche CF also in the top level. Towards the end of the following decade he became a coach, working mainly in his native region: Úbeda CF, Zalla UC, SD Lemona, Amurrio Club, Barakaldo and Zamora CF.
On 30 April 1985, Liceranzu earned his sole cap for Spain, playing the entire 1986 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Wales, a 0–3 loss in Wrexham.
