Jesús Uribesalgo Gutiérrez (born 25 May 1969), commonly known as Josu Uribe, is a Spanish football manager, currently in charge of UD Melilla.

Club career[edit]

Born in Gijón, Asturias, Uribe began coaching at the age of 21, managing youth sides at local Sporting de Gijón.[1] Subsequently, he coached in amateur senior football, his first achievement being leading Ribadesella CF to the third division in the 2001–02 season, a first-ever for the club.

As a result, Uribe moved straight into the second level with UD Las Palmas. In the 2003–04 campaign, he was in charge of Getafe CF as they reached La Liga for the first time in their history, finishing in second position behind champions Levante UD and only losing six games in 42.

From 2004 to 2009, Uribe continued working in division two, with Elche CF, Hércules CF,[2] Deportivo Alavés[3] and SD Eibar,[4] being relegated with the latter after 15 games in charge. He spent 2009–10 with Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa, in the third division.

In 2011, Uribe had a fleeting spell in Greek football,[5] leaving Panserraikos F.C. after a few months due to the club's economic problems. In January 2012 he was appointed at Girona FC after the sacking of Raül Agné, with the Catalans ranking in 21st position (ouf of 22 teams)[1] but eventually avoiding second tier relegation.
