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 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]
