Álvaro Cejudo Carmona (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈalβaɾo θeˈxuðo]; born 29 January 1984) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Australian club Western Sydney Wanderers FC mainly as a right winger.
Early years / Las Palmas
Born in Puente Genil, Córdoba, Cejudo played youth football with Real Betis but only appeared officially with the B-side, competing with the side in both Segunda División B and Tercera División. Leaving in the 2007 summer, he joined AD Ceuta in the latter level, where he spent two seasons.
In July 2009, Cejudo signed with UD Las Palmas from Segunda División. He played his first game as a professional on 29 August, and scored in a 1–1 home draw against Real Sociedad, finishing his first year with 34 matches and six goals to help the Canary Islands team narrowly avoid relegation.
Cejudo moved to La Liga with CA Osasuna in the 2011 January transfer window, agreeing to a €320,000 deal in order to replace Atlético Madrid-bound Juanfran. He netted his first goal in the competition on 21 May, the game's only at home against Villarreal CF.
On 11 August 2014, Cejudo returned to Betis after agreeing to a three-year deal. He contributed with 30 games and one goal in his first season, helping the club return to the top division after a one-year absence.
Western Sydney Wanderers
On 24 July 2017, after failing to renew his contract, 33-year-old Cejudo joined A-League team Western Sydney Wanderers FC as a marquee player. At the end of the season, he was released by Western Sydney Wanderers.
