José María Bakero Escudero (born 11 February 1963) is a Spanish retired footballer, and a current manager. Having played mainly for Real Sociedad and Barcelona, he began his career as a forward (not being a prolific goalscorer) but was converted into an attacking midfielder, who possessed passing and netting ability (with both his right foot and his head, the second despite his short stature) and great leadership skills.

During a 17-year professional career, Bakero amassed La Liga totals of 483 games and 139 goals, winning a total of 18 titles. In the 2000s, he embarked on a coaching career. A Spanish international during seven years, he represented the nation in two World Cups and one European Championship; in 1999 he began working as a manager, mainly in Poland.
