Pedro Luis Jaro Reguero (born 22 February 1963 in Madrid) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Football career[edit]

After emerging through local CD Colonia Moscardó's youth ranks, Jaro started his professional career with Cádiz CF, in the 1983–84 season, playing once in an eventual La Liga relegation. In 1988 he moved to neighbours CD Málaga, which was also relegated at the end of his second year.

Subsequently, Jaro played four years with national powerhouse Real Madrid, where he could only appear in 23 league games combined, barred by legendary Francisco Buyo.

In the 1994–95 campaign Jaro helped Real Betis overachieve for a final third place in the top division, immediately after having promoted: he played in all 38 matches and only conceded 25 goals, good enough for the Ricardo Zamora Trophy.

After two years at Atlético Madrid, playing second-fiddle to another Spanish international, José Francisco Molina, Jaro retired at 36, with 237 games played in the top flight. He went on to serve as goalkeeping coach for Atlético, the national team and Real Madrid, moving to the latter in 1995 and remaining there for over a decade.
