During his career, Bordalás 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.
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 the 2005–06 season 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 in the second tier.
After two spells at AD Alcorcón, Bordalás was named Deportivo Alavés manager on 11 June 2015. He led the team back to La Liga after ten years in his first season, as champions, but was still sacked on 21 June 2016.
