Victor Segura Abascal (born 30 March 1973 in Zaragoza, Aragon) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

A product of hometown Real Zaragoza's youth ranks, Segura made his senior debuts in the 1992–93 season with its B-team, in the third division. Released by the Aragonese without making any competitive appearances, his first club as a professional was Palamós CF in the second level.

After a solid 1993–94, Segura was signed by La Liga's CD Logroñés, appearing regularly but facing relegation in 1995, in what was his sole top flight campaign – the Riojan side ranked last with an all-time low 13 points. He then had two unassuming seasons with UE Lleida, also in Catalonia and division two.

A Spanish under-21 international, Segura moved to England in 1997 with Norwich City, signed by manager Mike Walker on a Bosman transfer. His spell with the club was not a successful one, and he was released by Walker's successor Bruce Rioch two years later, having spent his final year majorly with the reserves.

Segura retired at the end of 1999–2000, after just eight second division matches with Getafe CF. He was only 27.
