Fernando Ruiz Hierro (-esferˈnando ˈʝero; born 23 March 1968) is a retired Spanish footballer. He is mostly known for his spells with Real Madrid and Spain, appearing in more than 500 official games with the former and representing the latter on nearly 100 occasions, whilst appearing in four World Cups and two European Championships.

Equally at ease as a central defender or defensive midfielder, he had the ability, at his peak, to combine solid defensive play with a near-unlimited passing range and surprising goalscoring talent, which made him one of the world's most sought-after players. For the Merengues, he won five La Liga and three UEFA Champions League trophies, over the course of nearly 15 years.
