Luis Miguel Salvador López (born February 26, 1968 in Mexico City) is a retired Mexican football striker.


Salvador was on Mexico national team at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, playing only 10 minutes during the Republic of Ireland match.

Salvador is the third scorer in Atlante history, just below "Cabinho" and Horacio Casarin. He used the number 9 in his jersey, he changed it to 68 when Hugo Sánchez came to Atlante F.C..

Salvador was champion of the Mexico league in the 1992-1993 season. In that squad he played with noteworthy players as Daniel Guzmán, Miguel Herrera, Raúl Gutiérrez, and Roberto Andrade. The coach was Ricardo Lavolpe. In this season, Salvador finished second in the top scorers list, just below Ivo Bassay.

During his stay with Celaya, Salvador's goal celebration antics were unique. He pretended to be meditating, playing golf, fishing, and other unusual behaviors.
