Who was he? Pedro Luis Jaro (Madrid, 1963) was a goalkeeper who served in the ranks of CD Colonia Moscardó, Cádiz CF, CD Málaga, Real Madrid CF, Real Betis Balompié and Club Atlético de Madrid during a career that spanned from 1981 to 1999. He made his Liga BBVA debut with Cádiz and during his time at Real Madrid he won a Supercup of Spain in 1990 and the 1993 Copa del Rey.
Why is he remembered? Jaro was considered a sure-fire substitute keeper for a large part of his career. Francisco Buyo, at Real Madrid in the early 90s, and José Francisco Molina at Atlético at the end of the same decade, prevented Jaro from having more of a leading role at the clubs in Spain's capital.
What became of him? No sooner had he hung up his gloves, Jaro focused on goalkeeper coaching. He carried out the job at Atlético, Real Madrid, the Spanish national team and now fulfils the role at Juande Ramos' FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.
Did you know…? Jaro won the Trofeo Zamora in 1995 as a Betis keeper for the great 1994/95 season in which the side from Seville finished third.
