Miguel Ángel Ramírez Medina (born 23 October 1984) is a Spanish football manager, currently in charge of Ecuadorian club Independiente del Valle.


Born in Las Palmas, Canary islands, Ramírez joined UD Las Palmas' youth categories in 2003, from AD Claret.[1] In 2011 he moved to Greece, initially to work at AEK FC's youth setup, but subsequently worked at Panathinaikos FC and Olympiacos due to the economic crisis.[2]

In 2012, after a year back at Las Palmas, Ramírez spent a few months working as a scout for Deportivo Alavés before moving to Qatar, joining the Aspire Academy.[3] In 2018, after being also in charge of Qatar's under-14 football team and being assistant of compatriot Félix Sánchez Bas in the under-19s,[4] he moved to Ecuador and was appointed manager of CSD Independiente del Valle's under-18 squad.[5]

On 7 May 2019, after compatriot Ismael Rescalvo was appointed in charge of CS Emelec, Ramírez was appointed manager of the first team.[6] He led the club to the title of the 2019 Copa Sudamericana, the first of his career and the first international accolade of the club's history.[7]
