Roberto Luis Fresnedoso Prieto (born 15 January 1973 in Toledo, Castile-La Mancha), known simply as Roberto, is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

After moving to Catalonia in his teens, Roberto started his football career in the area, first with Girona FC, after which he moved to RCD Español, spending his first years with its farm team CE L'Hospitalet. He made his first appearance with the main squad in the 1992–93 season, in an eventual La Liga relegation.

After solid performances in the following years – this included 36 games with five goals in the 1994–95 campaign, as Espanyol qualified for the UEFA Cup straight out of the second division – Roberto signed with Atlético Madrid. Never an undisputed starter in seven years, he did manage 31 matches with three goals scored in his first, where the capital side won the double; he was also loaned in January 1998 to former club Espanyol.[1]

An all-around midfielder, Roberto retired in 2005 after successive spells with UD Salamanca, Real Murcia,[2] Rayo Vallecano and Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa (the latter in the third level). In 2010 he returned to the Colchoneros as a manager, being appointed at its youth sides.[3][4][5]
