Gaspar Gálvez Burgos (born 7 July 1979), known simply as Gaspar, is a Spanish former professional footballer who played as a defender.

He started his career with Atlético Madrid, and went on amass La Liga totals of 156 games and one goal over the course of eight seasons, also representing in the competition Oviedo, Valladolid, Albacete and Alavés. He added 208/3 in Segunda División, mainly at the service of Córdoba.

Club career[edit]

Gaspar was born in Córdoba, Andalusia. A product of Atlético Madrid's youth system, he made his first-team – and La Liga – debut on 3 January 1999 in a 3–2 away win against Racing de Santander, and alternated between the A and the B-sides for several years; at the end of his second professional season, the former was relegated.

After a six-month spell at Real Oviedo, with another top flight relegation, Gaspar signed with Real Valladolid for two seasons, after which he was re-bought by the Colchoneros. He was released after one year, and was subsequently successively relegated from the main division with Albacete Balompié (where he scored his first goal as a professional, in a 1–1 draw at Levante UD on 18 December 2004) and Deportivo Alavés.

Gaspar then played two more years in the second level with the Basques, returning to hometown's Córdoba CF in 2008 also in that category and alternating between the starting XI and the bench until his release in June 2013.
