Pablo Amo Aguado (born 15 January 1978) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a central defender.

In a career undermined by injuries, he amassed La Liga totals of 67 games and five goals over the course of eight seasons, mainly with Deportivo de La Coruña. He started playing professionally with Sporting de Gijón.

Football career[edit]

Born in Madrid, Amo started playing professional football with Sporting de Gijón, representing the Asturians during three Segunda División seasons. Joining Deportivo de La Coruña in 2002–03[1] he went very much unnoticed until the 2007–08 campaign (serving two loans in the process), when he excelled in a five-man defence devised by coach Miguel Ángel Lotina.

On 13 January 2008, in his first match for Depor in three years, Amo scored and was sent off in a 3–4 away loss against Villarreal CF,[2] also managing to find the net in a 2–0 home win over FC Barcelona three months later.[3] However, he spent the following season on the sidelines, bothered by an Achilles tendon ailment.[4]

On 3 August 2009, Amo was deemed surplus to requirements at Deportivo and moved to Real Zaragoza, on a two-year deal.[5] His first season was again severely hindered with constant physical problems, but his team maintained its La Liga status.

On 21 July 2010, aged 32, Amo moved abroad for the first time, signing with Panserraikos F.C. in Greece for one year. In the 2011 summer he joined Cypriot First Division club Olympiakos Nicosia but, again plagued by injuries, was released in the following transfer window.
