Alejandro Menéndez García (born 12 July 1966) is a Spanish football manager, who was most recently in charge of Celta B.
Born in Gijón, Asturias, Menéndez started his managerial career at Sporting de Gijón's youth setup. After winning the 2004 Copa de Campeones Juvenil de Fútbol and being a runner-up in 2005 Copa del Rey Juvenil, he moved to Real Madrid as a manager of the Juvenil squad.
In July 2007, Menéndez was named Celta de Vigo B manager, with the side in Segunda División B. On 13 May 2008 he was appointed at the helm of the main squad, replacing fired Antonio Lopez, and subsequently avoided relegation with the club.
Menéndez subsequently returned to Celta's B-team and, in 2009, was appointed at another reserve team, Real Madrid Castilla also in the third tier. On 4 January 2011, he was relieved from his duties.
On 5 March 2013, Menéndez was appointed manager of Racing de Santander as a replacement to dismissed José Aurelio Gay. However, he could not avoid the club's relegation to the third level, and subsequently left the club.
In September 2013 Menéndez moved abroad for the first time in his career, being named Buriram United F.C. manager in Thailand. With the side he achieved immediate success, winning a domestic treble (Thai Premier League, Thai FA Cup and Thai League Cup) during his first season in charge.
Menéndez resigned on 11 April 2014, after winning the Toyota Premier Cup and the Kor Royal Cup. On 28 December of that year, he was named as the new manager of China League One side Shaanxi Wuzhou, but left the side one month later due to its bureaucratic problems.
One year since his last job, Menéndez returned to Celta B in February 2016 where he signed a one and a-half-year contract as a replacement for the sacked Javier Torres Gomez.
