Fabricio Agosto Ramírez (born 31 December 1987), simply known as Fabricio, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Deportivo de La Coruña as a goalkeeper.

Football career[edit]

Fabricio was born in Las Palmas, Canary Islands. After being bought at almost 18 from local UD Vecindario, he finished his football formation at Deportivo de La Coruña. After suspensions to goalkeeping teammates Dudu Aouate and Gustavo Munúa due to a post-training punching session,[1] he was made first-choice, and made his La Liga debut on 13 January 2008 in a 3–4 away loss against Villarreal CF;[2] in February both offenders were reinstated in the first team, and he returned to the B-squad.

In January 2008 Arsenal reportedly showed interest in signing Fabricio, considered "one of Spain's brightest talents".[3] During the 2008–09 season he was definitely promoted to backup duties as Munúa and Aouate were both deemed surplus to requirements, and also played in the campaign's Copa del Rey;[4] however, after the Israeli's move to RCD Mallorca Munúa was again reinstated as second-choice, and Fabricio returned to the reserves.

On 13 July 2009 Fabricio was released by Depor, joining Real Valladolid on a 2+2 contract.[5] On 19 August of the following year he signed for Recreativo de Huelva in division two, on a one-year loan deal.[6]

Fabricio returned to the top flight for the 2011–12 campaign, moving to Real Betis.[7] He featured in 17 overall contests in his first year, keeping clean sheets against Real Zaragoza (2–0, away),[8] Málaga CF (2–0, also away)[9] and CA Osasuna (1–0 at the Estadio Benito Villamarín).[10] however, following a run-in with manager Pepe Mel,[11] he was demoted to third-choice and eventually left the club in the 2013 summer, returning to Deportivo.[12]
