Jacobo Sanz Ovejero, known as simply Jacobo (born 10 July 1983), is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for PAOK F.C. in Greece, as a goalkeeper.

Football career

Jacobo was born in Valladolid. A product of Real Valladolid's youth system – he joined the club at the age of only seven – he served two loan stints before returning in the 2005–06 season,[1] with the Castile and León club in Segunda División. He would only be third-choice during that period, and his official debut occurred on 1 October 2005 in a 3–2 away win against Real Madrid Castilla; his second league game was also against that opponent, five months later (1–0 home success).

In 2007–08, Jacobo contributed with 32 games to CD Numancia's return to La Liga after a three-year absence. He had been signed to a two-year deal with Valladolid keeping two re-buy options on the player,[2] and conceded just 28 goals during the campaign, only trailing CD Castellón's Carlos Sánchez in the Ricardo Zamora Trophy race.

In July 2008 Jacobo returned to Valladolid, signing a new three-year contract. However, injuries to Getafe CF's keepers, Argentines Roberto Abbondanzieri (a couple of weeks) and Oscar Ustari (eight months) prompted a loan request by the Madrid side, which was accepted.[3] On 14 September he (having received Ustari's nº1 jersey) made his debut for the club, keeping a clean sheet in a 0–0 home draw against Real Betis.[4]

From January 2009 onwards, as Abbondanzieri returned to Boca Juniors, Jacobo was reinstated as starter, first appearing on the 25th in a 5–1 home win against Sporting de Gijón.[5] In the 2009–10 season he alternated with Paraguayan Justo Villar when healthy, but Valladolid finished 18th with 62 goals against (the fourth-worst defensive record) and dropped down back to the second division.

In July 2011, after a failed transfer to Celtic[6] (the Scottish team had already shown interest in the player the previous summer[7]), Jacobo joined several compatriots at Asteras Tripoli F.C. in Greece, signing a two-year contract.[8] On 27 November, he was named Man of the match in a 2–0 home win against Olympiacos FC.[9]

On 21 April 2012, after the Superleague season was over, Jacobo was released by Asteras supposedly to move to Everton in England,[10] and had subsequent trials in the country with Charlton Athletic[11] and Middlesbrough in the ensuing summer.[12] Nothing came of it and, eventually, he stayed in Greece and joined PAOK F.C. for one year.[13]
