Roberto Jimenez, new Espanyol player
He becomes the first signing for the season 2016-2017 and he comes from Olympiakos
RCD Espanyol and Olympiacos CF have reached an agreement for the transfer of goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez (Madrid, 10.02.1986), who will become the first signing of Espanyol for the 2016-2017 season. Roberto will sign for three seasons with the blue and white team. He will join Espanyol's discipline from the second week of July.
Roberto is a goalkeeper with great professional experience. After making his debut in the First Division with Atletico Madrid, the Madrilenian defended the goal of Gimnàstic de Tarragona. Afterwards he played for Recreativo Huelva before returning to Atletico Madrid and make the leap to Benfica. However, it was in R. Zaragoza where he lived his best professional stage and played more regularly. His good performances caught the attention of Olympiakos, club that signed him in the campaign 2013-2014.
Pending relevant medical review and the final signing of the contract, Roberto will be presented Wednesday at the Auditorium of the RCD Stadium at 18.30pm. Only the media accreditated by the club will have access to the presentation. The supporters will have access to the stadium to greet our new player at 7 pm.
