Salguero began his professional career with Boca Juniors In 1981, he moved north to play for the Calgary Boomers in the North American Soccer League. In the fall of 1981, he signed with the Kansas City Comets of the Major Indoor Soccer League. The Comets traded him to the Buffalo Stallions in exchange for Yilmaz Orhan and Zoran Savic.

That summer Salguero played for the Buffalo Storm in the United Soccer League. In August 1984, he signed with the Kansas City Comets.

The Rogues folded at the end of the season and Salguero moved to the New York Kick. On December 31, 1990, the Kick named Salguero as the interim head coach. He went 1-4 as a coach, and with the team at the bottom of the standings, he was both fired as coach and waived as a player. In the fall of 1992, he played one game for the Buffalo Blizzard in the NPSL. In February 1997, the Blizzard brought Salguero into its coaching staff. On June 13, 1997, the Blizzard elevated him to head coach. He took the team into the playoffs, but was fired in July 1998.
