Josmar Jesús Zambrano Suárez (born 9 June 1992) is a Venezuelan professional footballer who plays for Zulia FC on loan from Deportivo La Guaira as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Zambrano was born in San Cristóbal, Táchira. He finished his formation with CD Tenerife in Spain,[1][2] signing his first professional contract on 25 August 2010, shortly after his 18th birthday.[3]

Zambrano made his official debut for the Canary Islands side on 1 September 2010, appearing against Elche CF in the season's Copa del Rey. His first league appearance came the following month, as he played 12 minutes in a 1–3 away defeat against FC Barcelona B for the Segunda División championship.[4]

Zambrano's form for Tenerife's reserves attracted attention from bigger clubs such as FC Barcelona and Sevilla FC.[5] Nothing came of it and, on 29 December 2011, he returned to his country and joined Zamora FC on loan.[6]

After returning Zambrano could not found his room in Tenerife's main squad, and rescinded his link on 18 January 2013.[7] Four days later he signed with Recreativo de Huelva, being immediately loaned to CD San Roque de Lepe in Segunda División B.[8]

On 30 December 2014 Zambrano cut ties with Recre and joined Deportivo La Guaira, being immediately loaned to Zulia FC also in Venezuela.[9]
