† Appearances (goals)

José "Pepe" Bordalás Jiménez (born 5 March 1964 in Alicante, Valencian Community) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a striker, and the current manager of Deportivo Alavés.

Playing career

During his career, Bordalás never played in higher than the fourth division and regional categories. He was under contract with Hércules CF for seven years but never appeared officially for the team, being loaned five times, which included a three-season spell with neighbouring Benidorm CF.

Released in 1988, Bordalás subsequently represented CD Dénia, FC Torrevieja, Petrelense, FC Jove Español San Vicente and UD Altea, retiring from football at only 28 due to injury.

Coaching career

As he had done whilst a player, Bordalás worked exclusively in the Valencian Community,[1] his first job being at Alicante CF's reserves in 1993, being appointed at the main squad the following year.

After three years with as many teams, Bordalás returned to Alicante in 1998, taking the club from the regional leagues to the third division in only three seasons. His first experience in the second level arrived with former side Hércules, replacing fired Juan Carlos Mandiá midway through the 2005–06 season and being sacked himself only seven games into the following campaign.

Bordalás returned to division three in 2007–08 with CD Alcoyano, leading the team to the first position in the following season and the subsequent failure in the promotion playoffs. In early October 2009 he rescinded his contract amicably, signing with Elche CF in the second level.[2]

Personal life

Bordalás' cousin, Juan Ignacio Martínez, is also a football coach.[3]
