Club career[edit]

Real Madrid[edit]

Early years[edit]

A defensive midfielder, Tébar signed for Spanish giants Real Madrid in 1998, at the age of 12. He rose through the youth ranks and played for the club's Juvenil team between 2002 and 2003.[1] At just 16, Tébar was included in the first team squad for a friendly versus Sevilla in September 2002.[2] He came on as a substitute for Albert Celades during the first half and played alongside first team players Roberto Carlos, Steve McManaman, Esteban Cambiasso and Guti for the remainder of the match. Tébar broke into the club's C team during the 2003/04 season, making appearances in the Tercera División.[1][3] Tébar's debut for the B team came with a start in a Segunda División B Group 2 match versus Alcorcón on 21 December 2003, though he lasted just seven minutes before being substituted for Álex González.[4] It proved to be his only appearance for the team during the 2003/04 season. The following season, Tébar continued to appear for the C team[1] and made three appearances for the Bs during their 2004/05 Segunda División B Group 1 championship-winning season,[5] completing his first 90 minutes for the team in a 4-2 victory over Fuenlabrada on 29 May 2005.[6] Tébar was rewarded for his progress when Vanderlei Luxemburgo called him into the first team squad for a La Liga match versus Real Zaragoza on 6 November 2005.[7] Assigned the number 38 shirt,[8] Tébar remained on the bench for the 1-0 win and received his second call into the squad for what would be Luxemburgo's final match in charge, a 1-0 victory over Getafe on 3 December.[7] He made just one Segunda División appearance for the B team (now renamed Real Madrid Castilla) in the 2005/06 season.[9]

Rayo Vallecano (loan)[edit]

Tébar joined Madrid neighbours Rayo Vallecano on loan in January 2006, on a deal running until the end of the 2005/06 season. He made his debut with a start in a 2-2 Segunda División B draw with San Isidro on 22 January.[10] He scored his first goal for the club with the opener in a 2-1 victory over Universidad de Las Palmas on 19 March.[11] Tébar made 17 appearances for the club and helped Los Franjirrojos to a fifth place finish.[9]

Reserve breakthrough and first team debut[edit]

Tébar began the 2006/07 season as a starter for Castilla and scored his first goal for the team with what proved to be a consolation in a 3-1 defeat to Deportivo Alavés on 9 September 2006.[12] He made 31 appearances and scored two goals[13] in an unsuccessful season for Castilla, which saw the team relegated back to the Segunda División B for the 2007/08 season. Tébar made just 17 appearances during the 2007/08 season and scored one goal[14] (a late winner in a 2-1 victory over Madrid rivals Atlético Madrid B on the final day),[15] helping the team to a fifth place finish in the Segunda División B Group 1. Tébar appeared in all but four games during the 2008/09 season and scored one goal,[16] which came in a 4-1 victory over Águilas on 28 September 2008.[17] An injury crisis saw Juande Ramos call Tébar and fellow reserve players Javier Velayos and Gary Kagelmacher into the first team squad for the final game of the 2008/09 season against CA Osasuna.[18] His first senior call up in nearly three and a half years, Tébar began the match on the bench and made his debut for the club when he replaced Gary Kagelmacher after 58 minutes of the 2-1 defeat.[19] Tébar returned to the B team for the 2009/10 season, but made just seven appearances.[20] Despite being included in Jose Mourinho's first team squads during the 2010/11 pre-season,[21] Tébar departed the club on 13 August 2010, having made just one first team appearance during his time with Los Blancos.[22] He made 94 appearances and scored four goals for Castilla.[22]

Girona (loan and permanent transfer)[edit]

Tébar signed for Segunda División side Girona in January 2010 on a deal running until the end of the 2009/10 season.[23] He made his debut with a start in a 4-1 defeat to Cartagena on 30 January.[24] Suffering with injury and finding himself in and out of the team, Tébar made 9 appearances for the club and scored no goals[24] before returning to Real Madrid at the end of the campaign. On 13 August 2010, Tébar agreed a three-year contract with Girona, signing for just €100.[25][26] He made 36 appearances for the club during the 2010/11 season,[27] helping the Catalans to an 11th place finish. He made just 36 appearances during a forgettable 2011/12 season,[28] but enjoyed a better 2012/13 campaign, making 40 appearances and breaking his goalscoring duck, by bagging three goals in three games in September 2012, netting in wins over Ponferradina,[29] Las Palmas and Sporting Gijón. He scored his fourth goal for the club in an emphatic 4-0 win over Lugo on 20 April 2013.[30] His form helped Girona to a fourth place finish and a tie against Alcorcón in the end-of-season playoffs. After overcoming Alcorcón 4-2 on aggregate, Tébar's season ended in disappointment with a 4-0 aggregate defeat to Almería in the playoff final. The match proved to be Tébar's final appearance for the club and he departed in July 2013, having made 121 appearances for the side in his three seasons.


On 9 July 2013, Tébar joined newly-promoted La Liga side Almería on a free transfer,[31] along with other new signings Víctor Ibañez and Suso.[32] At his unveiling, he said "I’m really excited about this opportunity, just like all my new teammates. They’ve made it really easy for me to adapt here, as has the manager".[33] Assigned the number 6 shirt, Tébar made his first appearance in La Liga for over four years on 19 August 2013, starting in a 2–3 home loss to Villarreal.[34] He made 29 appearances during the 2013/14 season, helping the club to stave off relegation back to the Segunda División by a single point.[35] Tébar had his contract terminated by mutual consent after the season.[36]


On 25 June 2014, Tébar signed for English Championship side Brentford on a two-year contract, with the option of a third year.[37] Manager Mark Warburton revealed that he had been tracking Tébar for eighteen months and described him as "a very talented midfield player, excellent tactically and technically.[37] Upon joining, Tébar said "I am very excited to play for the team and I am also excited that I am going to live in a city like London".[38]

International career[edit]

Tébar was capped for Spain at U16 and U17 level. Coming through in the same generation as Cesc Fàbregas and David Silva, Tébar was included the U17 squad for the U17 World Cup and the U17 European Championship in the summer of 2003, winning runners-up medals in both tournaments.
