Fernando Sales de los Cobos (born 12 September 1977) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for UD San Sebastián de los Reyes as a right midfielder.

Football career[edit]

Sales was born in Seville, Andalusia. A product of local Real Betis' youth system, he first appeared professionally with lowly CD Isla Cristina and Levante UD (then in the third division, achieving promotion in his first year).

After making his La Liga debuts with Real Valladolid in the 2000–01 season, during a 1–1 away draw against UD Las Palmas, and being an undisputed starter in the following three years scoring a combined total of 15 league goals, Sales transferred to Sevilla FC on a five-year contract, upon Valladolid's 2004 relegation.[1] He appeared sporadically for his new club during his first two campaigns, being restricted to Copa del Rey games in the 2006–07 campaign and not registered at all – alongside teammate Jesuli – in the following season.

On 13 January 2008, Sales moved to Celta de Vigo on a free transfer.[2] In September he signed a one-year deal with another second level side, Hércules CF,[3] being reunited with former Valladolid teammate Tote.

Veteran Sales continued playing in division two in the following years, with Albacete Balompié and AD Alcorcón.[4]
