Club career[edit]

Born in Málaga, Andalusia, Pedro started playing football with hometown's Málaga CF, joining Atlético Madrid in 2008 at the age of 16.[1] After two years in the youth ranks he made his senior debuts with the C-team in Tercera División and, after a good first year, he was called by first-team manager Gregorio Manzano for the 2011–12 pre-season, going on to score six goals; he was an unused substitute in both UEFA Europa League games against Strømsgodset IF, but eventually spent most of the campaign with the reserves in Segunda División B.[2]

Pedro made his debut with the Colchoneros' first team on 8 December 2011, replacing Pizzi midway through the second half of a 1–2 Copa del Rey defeat at Albacete Balompié (1–3 on aggregate).[3] On 21 March of the following year, also at the Estadio Carlos Belmonte but with Atlético B, he scored in the last minute for a 2–1 win.[4]

New coach Diego Simeone called Pedro for various matches later in the season, as he continued to appear and score with the reserves. His first appearance in La Liga came on 29 April 2012, coming on for Tiago in the last minute of a 2–2 away draw against Real Betis.[5] On 9 May he received a Europa League winner's medal following Atlético's triumph over Athletic Bilbao, but did not leave the substitutes' bench.[6]

On 29 January 2013, Pedro was loaned to Segunda División side CD Numancia until the end of the season,[7] and the move was extended for a further year on 12 July.[8] On 26 August of the following year, he signed for fellow league team CD Mirandés.[9]

On 30 June 2015, Pedro moved to CD Tenerife still in the second tier.[10] On 1 February 2016 he joined RC Celta de Vigo, being assigned to the B-team who competed in the third division.[11]

Pedro returned to Mirandés on 17 August 2016, now in a one-year loan deal.[12]
