Michel Salgado

Where is Michel Salgado now?

Considered a legend by Blackburn Rovers fans for his no-nonsense displays at right back and his desire to win, Salgado retired from playing in 2012 after the club couldn’t afford his contract terms.

Since retiring from playing Salgado has stayed in football and is currently completing his UEFA coaching badges.

Salgado is also Director of Football at Dubai Sports City where he oversees all footballing programmes within their soccer academy for children aged up to 16-years-old.

Away from football, Salgado is an ambassador for Trig Money, Chevrolet and Adidas within the Middle East and North Africa region.

He has also founded a charity with his wife which aims to raise money to help the disadvantaged children of the Galicia region in Spain.

In September 2015 Salgado was recruited as a global ambassador for La Liga with a remit to help develop the Spanish league on an international level but with a focus on the United Arab Emirates.

In June 2016, Salgado was signed up by sports broadcaster beIN Sports as a match analyst and pundit for their coverage of Euro 2016.

In the same month it was announced that Salgado would be joining the inaugral Indian Premier Futsal league as one of their marquee players on a three year contract.

In April 2017, Salgado and a Swiss-Italian partner took over Gibraltan side Gibraltar United with Salgado taking charge of the club’s transfer activities.

In July 2017 Michel Salgado represented Spain in Star Sixes, a six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.

Although Spain were knocked out in the semi-finals by eventual winners France, Salgado ended the tournament’s joint top scorer.
