Germán Adrián Ramón Burgos (Spanish pronunciation: [xerˈmam ˈburɣos]; born 16 April 1969) is an Argentine retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper, and the current assistant coach for Atlético Madrid.
Born in Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires Province, Burgos started playing professionally with Ferro Carril Oeste. In 1994 he moved to Argentine Primera División giants Club Atlético River Plate, where he was dubbed Mono (monkey) because of his height and disheveled appearance, going on to win several titles during his spell, notably the 1994 Apertura where his team did not lose one single game.
Burgos signed for Atlético Madrid in the 2001–02 season, with the capital club in Segunda División. He had his best year in the country in an eventual return to La Liga after a two-year absence, but appeared less in the following two campaigns, retiring at the end of 2003–04 aged 35.
In 2010, after working with AD Alcorcón as goalkeepers' coach, Burgos started his manager career also in Spain, coaching amateurs RCD Carabanchel. In the following years he worked as assistant to former club and country teammate Diego Simeone, at Catania Calcio, Racing Club de Avellaneda and Atlético Madrid.
Burgos played 35 times for the Argentine national team, during seven years. He was second-choice at both the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups, backing up Carlos Roa in the former tournament and Pablo Cavallero four years later.
