• Madrid-born Roberto Jiménez Gago graduated from the Atlético academy, playing at every youth level for Spain from Under-16 upwards.

• Made his Liga debut on 22 December 2005 against CA Osasuna but spent the following season playing for Atlético's B team and was dispatched on loan to Gimnàstic for the entire 2007/08 campaign, playing 28 matches in the Segunda División.

• Joined Recreativo for the 2008/09 season but was overlooked for Liga matches and returned to Atlético, where he was only third choice behind Sergio Asenjo and David de Gea; made his UEFA Champions League debut in a group game at FC Porto (0-2) but lasted only 26 minutes before leaving the field injured.

• Spent the second half of 2009/10 on loan at Zaragoza – thus missing Atlético's UEFA Europa League triumph – but performed well and earned an €8.5m summer transfer to Benfica, where he replaced veteran Quim as the Portuguese club's No1.

• An ever-present in the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League, he also started all six matches of Benfica's run to the UEFA Europa League semi-finals.

• Made a permanent move to Zaragoza ahead of the 2011/12 season, playing every league game for the Spanish club as they avoided relegation, a fate they could not escape the following campaign. 

• Transferred back to Atlético from whom Olympiacos FC took him on loan ahead of the 2013/14 season, where he started the campaign as first choice.
