Christian Jimenez (born November 3, 1986 in San Dimas, California) is an American soccer player of Mexican descent. He is currently without a club, having been waived by Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer in 2007.
Jimenez trained with the United States Under-17 national team at the USSF's Bradenton Academy from the Fall 2002 to Spring 2004, and competed in a Youth World Championship. Upon graduating from Bradenton, Jimenez moved to the University of South Florida along with Rodrigo Hidalgo. At USF he played only one season of college soccer, appearing in 17 games and registering four goals and four assists, before turning professional by signing a Generation Adidas contract with MLS.
Jimenez was selected 14th overall in the 2005 MLS SuperDraft by Chivas USA, a team dedicated to fielding a largely Hispanic, Spanish-speaking team in MLS. He never played a first-team match for Chivas and was traded to Real Salt Lake after the 2005 season along with Douglas Sequeira for Brian Dunseth. He made one appearance in the 2006 season, but missed the rest of the season due to a torn ACL to his left knee. He was waived at the end of 2007 because of differences with head coach Jason Kreis.
