Victor Sánchez del Amo was born on February 23, 1976 in Madrid, Spain. He started playing football in the academies of Real Madrid in 1987, at the age of 11, and made it all the way to the first team (1996/97 and 1997/98 seasons). He spent most of his football years in Deportivo de La Coruña, as a player of the club between 1999 and 2006. He has also played in the Spain National Football Team.
He started coaching as a partner of the former coach of Olympiacos, Míchel González (2010/11). The same thing applied in Sevilla too where Victor Sánchez was an assistant to Mr Míchel from February 2012 until January 2013. On February 4, 2013 Victor became a member of Olympiacos while working next to Mr Míchel. He kept this position until June 2014 when he returned to Spain to become, some months later (April 9, 2015), the head coach of Deportivo de La Coruña.
Deportivo de La Coruña finished the 2014/15 season with Mr Sánchez under the helm and kept him as head coach during the next season as well (2015/16).
