Jonathan Pérez Olivero (born 6 June 1982), commonly known as Jotha, is a Spanish footballer who plays for Norwegian club FK Tønsberg mainly as a right winger.

Football career[edit]

Born in Tinajo, Lanzarote, Jotha graduated through UD Las Palmas' youth system, having arrived from lowly neighbours UD Lanzarote. In January 2004, after 15 games in 2003–04's second division with the first team – with the campaign eventually ending in relegation – he moved to Real Madrid, spending almost two entire seasons with its reserves.

Jotha appeared in one match with the La Liga powerhouse: on 21 September 2004, he played three minutes in a 1–0 home win against CA Osasuna after replacing legendary Raúl.[1]

Released in June 2006, Jotha played one season in the second level with SD Ponferradina (relegation), then continued his career in the lower leagues, mainly in his native Canary Islands. In 2008, ten years after leaving, he returned to Lanzarote in division three.[2]

Aged 32, Jotha moved abroad for the first time in his career, signing with FK Tønsberg in the Norwegian 3. Divisjon and helping to promotion. In late January 2016, following a brief spell back in his country with CD Unión Sur Yaiza, he returned to his previous club.[3]
