Alberto Jiménez Benítez (born 15 November 1992), simply known as Alberto, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for CD Tenerife as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

Born in La Oliva, Province of Las Palmas, Alberto finished his formation with local CD Tenerife, making his senior debuts with the B-team in the fourth division. In his second season as a senior he appeared 17 times with the main squad (13 in the league) and scored three goals, achieving promotion to the second level via the play-offs.

On 18 August 2013 Alberto played his first game as a professional, coming on as a late substitute in a 0–1 away loss against AD Alcorcón.[1] On 13 August of the following year he renewed his contract for a further season, being immediately loaned to Valencia CF Mestalla in a season-long deal.[2]

On 10 November 2015, after returning from loan, Alberto extended his link until 2018.[3]
