Alberto Lora Ramos (born 25 March 1987) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Sporting de Gijón. On the right side of the pitch, he can operate as a defender or midfielder.

Football career[edit]

Lora was born in Móstoles, Community of Madrid. A former Real Madrid trainee he served as co-captain for the Juvenil team in the 2005–06 season, alongside Javier Velayos, and played in 33 games as the club won the Champions Cup of the category.

The following summer, Lora moved to Sporting de Gijón: mainly registered with its B-side he played once with the main squad during the 2007–08 campaign (a 0–1 home loss against Celta de Vigo), as the Asturians eventually returned from the second division after ten years.

In 2009–10, due to longtime starter Rafel Sastre's age, Lora was successfully reconverted into right back.[1] He ended up as the undisputed first-choice in that position, playing nearly 2,800 minutes as Sporting avoided La Liga relegation as 15th; in the following season his individual numbers were even better – he was the player with more minutes in the squad, leading the following player by nearly 700 minutes – as the team's final position.

On 25 March 2012, the day of his 25th birthday, Lora scored his first goal as a professional, netting in the last-minute to earn Sporting a point against Athletic Bilbao, in a 1–1 away draw.[2]
