Adrián Sardinero Corpa (born 13 October 1990 in Leganés, Madrid) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Cypriot club AEL Limassol as a forward.

Football career[edit]

After emerging through local Getafe CF's youth ranks,[1] Sardinero made his senior debuts in 2008, helping the B-team promote to the third division for the first time ever in his second year.

On 30 September 2010, one month before his 20th birthday, he made his debut for the main squad, playing 20 minutes in a 0–2 loss against BSC Young Boys for the season's UEFA Europa League group stage.[2] One months 1/2 later, in a home fixture against the same Swiss opponent – in the same competition – he scored the game's only goal, all this before having appeared in La Liga for the Madrid outskirst team.[3]

On 2 April 2011 Sardinero scored his first Spanish top flight goal, netting in the last minutes of a 2–4 home loss against Valencia CF after coming on as a substitute for midfielder Borja Fernández midway through the second half.[4] For the 2011–12 campaign, both he and teammate Alberto Escassi were loaned to Hércules CF in the second level.

On 10 July 2012 Sardinero (and Escassi) signed permanently with Hércules, penning a three-year contract.[5]
