Miguel Álvarez Jurado (born 22 March 1958) is a Spanish football manager, currently in charge of CE Sabadell FC.

Managerial career

Born in Guarromán, Jaén, Andalusia, Álvarez made his managerial debuts with UDA Gramenet's youth setup in 1988. In 1991 he managed his first senior team, UE Cerdanyola de Mataró in the regional leagues.[1]

In the 2000 summer Álvarez was appointed Terrassa FC manager, achieving a promotion to Segunda División in 2002. After avoiding relegation in the following year, he was sacked in September 2003.[2]

In 2004 Álvarez was named Ciudad de Murcia manager. He was relieved from his duties on 20 December 2004[3] but returned to the club on 3 May of the following year,[4] and narrowly avoided the drop.

In June 2005 Álvarez returned to Terrassa, now in Segunda División B, and subsequently stayed in the category, managing Lorca Deportiva CF, CF Badalona, CE L'Hospitalet (two stints)[5][6] and CD Leganés.[7] After missing out promotion in the play-offs with Hospi, he was appointed at the helm of second level's AD Alcorcón on 3 July 2013.[8]

On 4 February 2014 Álvarez was sacked, mainly due to the club's poor home records in the campaign.[9] On 18 February 2015, after one year without any club, he was named UE Sant Andreu manager.[10]

On 12 June 2015 Álvarez was appointed CE Sabadell FC manager, signing a two-year deal.[11]
