Víctor Salas Baños (born 16 June 1980) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

He amassed Segunda División totals of 208 games and 17 goals during eight seasons, representing in the competition Sevilla, Almería, Poli Ejido, Castellón and Ponferradina. He appeared in La Liga with the first club.

Football career[edit]

Born in Morón de la Frontera, Province of Seville, Salas made his professional debut with hometown's Sevilla FC, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–2 away loss against Valencia CF on 4 December 1999. He appeared in 19 La Liga games in a relegation-ending season, then contributed with roughly the same the following campaign in an immediate promotion.

After two 1/2 more seasons where he could never impose himself as a starter, Salas moved in January 2004 to Andalusian neighbours UD Almería, in the second division, then established his career with another side in the region, Polideportivo Ejido, appearing an average of 36 matches (second level also) per season.

Salas moved to CD Castellón in 2007, after his link with Ejido was not renewed. After two more years in division two, with a poor personal output in his second, he dropped down to the third category and signed with SD Ponferradina.
