Football career

Born in Fuente de Piedra, Province of Málaga, Salguero started playing professionally with hometown's CD Málaga, making his La Liga debuts in 1979–80, in a relegation-ending campaign. In the subsequent off-season he signed for Real Madrid, but spent almost two entire years with the reserves, being nonetheless part of the squad that won the 1982 Copa del Rey.

Salguero only managed to start regularly for the Merengues in 1986–87, playing 28 games – and partnering legendary Manuel Sanchís in the heart of the back-four – as the club won the national championship. Previously, he was relatively used in back-to-back UEFA Cup conquests, and left in 1987 with more than 100 official appearances to his credit.

Subsequently, Salguero played five seasons with Sevilla FC, rarely missing one game for the Andalusians. In his third year they managed to finish sixth and qualify to the UEFA Cup, being ousted in the second round by Russian side FC Torpedo Moscow.

Aged 32, Salguero moved to Segunda División and signed with CP Mérida, appearing in 104 league matches during his three-year spell and helping the Extremadura team promote to the top division for the first time ever, in 1995. He retired with totals in the latter competition of 278 games and 21 goals, over the course of 12 seasons.
