Fabricio Martín Agosto Ramírez (Spanish pronunciation: [faˈβɾiθjo aˈɣosto raˈmiɾeθ]; born 31 December 1987), known as Fabri [ˈfaβɾi], is a Spanish footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for RCD Mallorca on loan from English club Fulham.
Fabri appeared in 55 La Liga matches during five seasons, representing Deportivo (two spells) Valladolid and Betis in the competition. He also competed professionally in Turkey and England, winning the Süper Lig championship with Beşiktaş in 2016–17.
Fabri was born in Las Palmas, Canary Islands. After being bought at almost 18 from local UD Vecindario, he finished his football formation at Deportivo de La Coruña. After suspensions to goalkeeping teammates Dudu Aouate and Gustavo Munúa due to a post-training punching session, he was made first-choice, and made his La Liga debut on 13 January 2008 in a 3–4 away loss against Villarreal CF; in February both offenders were reinstated in the first team, and he returned to the B-squad.
In January 2008, Arsenal reportedly showed interest in signing Fabri, considered "one of Spain's brightest talents". During the 2008–09 season he was definitely promoted to backup duties as Munúa and Aouate were both deemed surplus to requirements, and also appeared in the Copa del Rey; however, after the Israeli's move to RCD Mallorca, Munúa was again reinstated as second-choice and Fabri returned to the reserves.
On 13 July 2009, Fabri was released by Depor, joining Real Valladolid on a 2+2 contract. On 19 August of the following year he signed for Recreativo de Huelva of Segunda División, on a one-year loan deal.
Fabri returned to the top flight for the 2011–12 campaign, moving to Real Betis. He featured in 17 overall contests in his first year, keeping clean sheets against Real Zaragoza (2–0, away), Málaga CF (2–0, also away) and CA Osasuna (1–0 at the Estadio Benito Villamarín). however, following a run-in with manager Pepe Mel, he was demoted to third-choice and eventually left the club in summer 2013, returning to Deportivo.
Fabri played second-fiddle to Germán Lux in his first year in his second spell in Galicia, but subsequently became the starter. He lost the vast majority of 2015–16, however, due to a tibia injury he originally contracted ten years ago (in 2011, whilst at Betis, he also suffered a potentially career-threatening shoulder ailment).
In July 2016, Fabri moved abroad for the first time, signing for Turkish Süper Lig champions Beşiktaş JK. In a 0–6 loss at FC Dynamo Kyiv in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League on 6 December, he began to cry after conceding the fourth goal of the first half.
On 24 July 2018, Fabri joined Premier League club Fulham on a three-year deal with the option of a fourth year. He was already known to their goalkeeping coach José Sambade Carreira, with the pair having worked together at Deportivo. His first appearance in the Premier League took place on 11 August, in a 0–2 home defeat against Crystal Palace.
