Pedro Ríos Maestre (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpeðɾo ˈri.os]; born 12 December 1981) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Córdoba CF as a right winger.

Football career[edit]

Ríos was born in Jerez de la Frontera, Province of Cádiz. After playing with Atlético Sanluqueño CF (fourth division, having started his career as a striker) and AD Ceuta (in the third), he moved to local Xerez CD in 2004. He scored 11 second level goals in his second professional season, for a final seventh place.

After playing an important part in Xerez's first ever promotion to La Liga – 24 games and 17 starts, four goals[1][2][3][4] in nearly 1,600 minutes of action – Ríos agreed to a three-year contract with Getafe CF in the summer of 2009.[5] Scarcely used during his debut campaign as the Madrid club qualified to the UEFA Europa League, he was made first-choice after Pedro León's departure to Real Madrid.[6]

On 5 December 2010, Ríos netted twice as Getafe downed RCD Mallorca 3–0 at home,[7] and finished the season with seven league goals as his team narrowly escaped relegation.
