José 'Pepe' Gálvez Estévez (born 3 August 1974 in Calvià, Majorca, Balearic Islands) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a striker, and the current manager of RCD Mallorca B.

He amassed La Liga totals of 177 games and 34 goals during eight seasons, in representation of Mallorca (two spells), Valencia and Betis. He later worked with the first club as a manager.

Football career[edit]

At the age of only 17, Gálvez became RCD Mallorca's youngest player ever to appear in a La Liga match, his first chance being awarded by manager Lorenzo Serra Ferrer. With three goals in 22 games from the player, the Balearic Islands club would eventually suffer top flight relegation in 1992.

After a solid 1992–93 season, even though Mallorca failed to regain its lost status, Gálvez was bought by Valencia CF, where he would be used intermittently. In his third year, as the Che finished in second position four points behind champions Atlético Madrid, he scored 11 goals in 28 matches (27 starts), only being surpassed in the squad by Serb Predrag Mijatović's 28.

Injury prevented Gálvez from taking part in the 1996 Summer Olympics tournament, and he could never reproduce his previous form in the following campaigns, with Valencia also loaning him to Mallorca for one-and-a-half years. In 1998 he signed for Real Betis, being relegated from the top division in 2000 and immediately promoting back, but only netting four times combined for the Andalusians during this timeframe.

After one season in Segunda División with Burgos CF, ending in relegation, Gálvez retired from professional football at only 27, playing one more year in amateur football in his native region.
