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.

Over his illustrious 18-year career, Salgado won a number of trophies including the La Liga title four times, the Spanish Supercup three times and the UEFA Champions League twice.

He also represented the Spain national side on 53 occasions and featured in both the 2000 European Championships and the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals.

Since retiring from playing Salgado has stayed in football and is currently completing his UEFA coaching badges whilst working as a director of football at Dubai Sports City where he oversees all footballing programmes within their youth academy.

He has also worked extensively in the media across a number of broadcasters including beIN Sports and Sky Sports.

Away from football, he is an ambassador for Trig Money, Chevrolet and Adidas within the Middle East and North Africa region and also works 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 April 2017, Salgado and a Swiss-Italian partner took over Gibraltan side Gibraltar United with Salgado taking charge of the club’s transfer activities.

A year later he joined the Egypt national side as one of their coaching staff working alongside Javier Aguirre but the manager and whole backroom team were sacked in July 2019 after a poor showing at the African Cup of Nations.
