José María Bakero Escudero (born 11 February 1963) is a retired Spanish footballer, and the current coach of Lech Poznań in Poland.

Having played mainly for Real Sociedad and FC 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 483 games in La Liga, scoring a total of 139 goals and collecting a total of 18 titles. In the 2000s, he embarked in a coaching career.
