Playing careerEdit

Bordalás was born in Alicante, Valencian Community. During his career, he never played in higher than the fourth division and regional championships; 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, UD Petrelense CF, UD Español San Vicente and UD Altea, retiring from football at only 28 due to injury.

Coaching careerEdit

Bordalás worked exclusively in his region of birth for 19 years,[1] his first job being at Alicante CF's reserves in 1993. The following year, he was appointed at the main squad.

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

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

After two spells at AD Alcorcón,[3][4] Bordalás was named Deportivo Alavés manager on 11 June 2015.[5] He led the team back to La Liga after ten years in his first season, as champions,[6] but was still sacked on 21 June 2016.[7]

Bordalas was hired by Getafe CF in September 2016, replacing the dismissed Juan Esnáider on a deal until the end of the campaign.[8] He again won promotion to the top flight, this time by a 3–2 aggregate victory over CD Tenerife in the playoff final the following June.[9] Following an 8th-place finish in his first season at that level, he led the Community of Madrid team to a best-ever fifth position and only missed qualification for the UEFA Champions League on the last matchday in May 2019; he earned the Miguel Muñoz Trophy for best coach for this feat.[10]

Personal lifeEdit

Bordalás' cousin, Juan Ignacio Martínez, is also a football coach.[11]
