• Diego López joined Madrid in 2000 and started out in their C team, performing regularly in 2000/01 and 2002/03, with a loan spell at Liga 2B side Alcorcón in between. Moved up to the B selection in 2004/05 followed by promotion to the first team the following season as deputy to Iker Casillas.

• Made just two Liga appearances for Madrid – plus two in Europe and seven in the Copa del Rey – before joining Villarreal in search of first-team football in June 2007.

• Ousted Sebastián Viera as Villarreal's first-choice during his debut campaign and was a Liga ever-present in 2008/09 and 2009/10. Featured in La Roja's 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup squad and made his international debut as a substitute a few months later in a friendly against the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

• Made nine UEFA Champions League appearances as the Yellow Submarine reached the quarter-finals in 2008/09, avoiding defeat in the first eight matches; prominent again in Villarreal's extended 2010/11 UEFA Europa League run.

• Moved to Sevilla in the summer of 2012, but spent just seven months at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán before returning to Madrid, where he quickly became No1 after Casillas sustained a hand injury. Was retained as first-choice in the Liga the following season but made just a single outing, on matchday one, in the Whites' successful UEFA Champions League campaign.
