Jordi Codina Rodríguez (born 27 April 1982) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for CF Reus Deportiu as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Codina arrived at Real Madrid in 2002 at the age of 20, having been grown in the youth system of local RCD Espanyol. After the departure of Carlos Sánchez and David Cobeño, he became first-choice with the reserve sideAntonio Adán was the backup and Kiko Casilla third-choice, as he eventually gained Castilla's captaincy.

Codina made his professional debuts in the second division, in the 2005–06 season, against Sporting de Gijón. In the last of his five years with the B-team, he played in 35 of 38 games for a total of 3,150 minutes.

At the start of 2007–08, Codina was promoted to Real Madrid's main squad as third goalkeeper, after Iker Casillas and Jerzy Dudek. As they had already been crowned league champions, he made his first and sole official appearance for the club in the last match of the campaign, playing the full 90 minutes in a 5–2 home win against Levante UD on 18 May 2008.[1]

On 2 July 2009, Codina moved to fellow La Liga side Getafe CF, also in Madrid, on a free transfer, signing a three-year contract and reuniting with former Castilla manager Míchel.[2] In his debut season and the following, he constantly battled for first-choice status with Argentine Óscar Ustari.[3]

Codina left in June 2015, after his link expired.[4] On the 11th, aged 33, he moved abroad for the first time in his career and signed a two-year deal with Cypriot club APOEL FC.[5] On 7 January 2016, however, after failing to appear in any competitive games, he joined fellow First Division team Pafos FC on a six-month loan.[6]

On 16 July 2016, Codina cut ties with APOEL by mutual consent.[7] Shortly after, he returned to Spain after agreeing to a one-year contract with second level team CF Reus Deportiu.[8]
