Mikel Álvaro Salazar (born 20 December 1982 in Amurrio, Álava) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for SD Amorebieta.

Club career[edit]

After playing throughout most of his career in third division or lower, mainly with hometown's Amurrio Club, Álvaro arrived at already 27 at CD Numancia, in the second level.[1] His first game in the competition occurred on 29 August 2009, as he featured one minute in a 2–1 away win against Celta de Vigo;[2] already as a starter he scored his first goal as a professional, in a 1–0 home win over Real Unión.[3]

Álvaro terminated his contract with the Soria club in early August 2011,[4] going on to spend the following two seasons in Georgia with FC Dinamo Tbilisi, where he shared teams with several compatriots.[5] In the summer of 2013, he joined Azerbaijan Premier League side Inter Baku PIK on a two-year deal.[6]

Álvaro left Auckland City FC in January 2016,[7] and rejoined Dinamo Tbilisi later in the month.[8] He returned to both his homeland and his native region on 16 January 2017, signing for lower league club SD Amorebieta.[9]
