Urko Rafael Pardo Goas (born 28 January 1983) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for APOEL FC in Cyprus, as a goalkeeper.

Football career[edit]

Barcelona[edit]

Born in Brussels to a Basque father and a Galician mother, Pardo began his football career with R.S.C. Anderlecht, finishing his formation with FC Barcelona but never making it past its B-side.[1] He split the 2005–06 season – always on loan – between FC Cartagena and CE Sabadell FC with both teams in the third division, suffering relegation with the latter.

Rapid București / Greece[edit]

In the 2007 summer, released by Barça, Pardo signed with Greece's Iraklis Thessaloniki, moving the following year to Rapid București in Romania but appearing rarely in his first season.

In 2009–10 another loan ensued as Pardo moved to Olympiacos F.C. also in Greece, playing just three league games in his first year. The move was extended by Rapid for the following season, and he appeared more regularly (Olympiacos was seeking a replacement for the legendary Antonios Nikopolidis (40), who was set to retire in June 2011, and said the Spaniard would be a very good choice for succeeding him[2]), being the most used player in his position.

APOEL[edit]

In the last day of the 2011 summer transfer window, Pardo signed a two-year contract with Cyprus champions APOEL FC. He made his official debut on 19 October against F.C. Porto, replacing injured Dionisis Chiotis early into the second half of a 1–1 away draw for the season's UEFA Champions League,[3] and added a further four appearances as the club reached the quarterfinals for the first time ever.

During the 2014–15 season, Pardo appeared in every group stage match in APOEL's third UEFA Champions League campaign.[4]
