Adrián Age|Early life
Adrián was born on 3 January 1987 in Seville, Spain.
He played as a striker and a winger for CD Altair until age ten, when the previous goalkeeper left and he changed position to that of a goalkeeper. He later signed for Real Betis, where he finished his formation.
Adrián spent his first two seasons with the C-team and a further five with the reserves, four of those in Segunda División B, successively backing up René and Brimah Razak. He was also loaned to Alcalá in 2008 and Utrera in 2009. He was promoted to the first team for 2011–12 as third-choice – still continuing to appear for the B’s – but suffered a severe injury to his cruciate ligaments in November that kept him out of action for five-and-a-half months.
He made his La Liga debut on 29 September 2012 in a 0–4 away loss against Málaga. After Casto was sent off in the early minutes, he replaced out-field player Salvador Agra and went on to be named Man of the Match. Still in the 2012–13 campaign, he became the starter, namely putting on a Man of the match performance in a 1–0 home win against Real Madrid on 24 November. Following his debut, he went on to start the next 31 matches, keeping 11 clean sheets as the club finished in seventh place and qualified to the UEFA Europa League.
Adrián is 1.90 m (6 ft 3 in) tall.
Adrian salary in Liverpool is still not available but we understand he received a weekly salary of £50,000 at Westham.
On 5 August 2019, it was announced that Adrián has signed for Liverpool on a free agent transfer. He made his debut on 9 August in a 4-1 win against Norwich City, coming on in the 39th minute, replacing an injured Alisson.
Adrián saved Tammy Abraham’s penalty in the 2019 UEFA Super Cup, winning Liverpool their first trophy of the 2019–2020 season in a match that ended 2–2 (5–4 on pens)
Adrián West ham
Having been watched playing for Betis by West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce and goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson, Adrián was persuaded to join the club. On 5 June 2013, it was announced he would sign a three-year contract on 1 July with the Premier League club having the option to extend this deal for a further two seasons.
Adrián made his Hammers debut on 27 August 2013 in a 2–1 home win against Cheltenham Town for the season’s League Cup. During the match, he fouled Jermaine McGlashan to concede a penalty, which Matt Richards converted. His first league appearance came on 21 December, a 1–3 loss at Manchester United.
On 11 January 2014, He kept his first Premier League clean sheet, in the 2–0 away win over Cardiff City. On 6 May, he attended the club’s awards and won “Save of the Season” for a fingertip save from Oscar against Chelsea in January. He also won “Best Individual Performance” for the same match, in which he kept a clean sheet in a goalless draw, as well as “Signing of the Season”. He was also named runner-up “Hammer of the Year” to Mark Noble. By the end of the 2013–14 season, he had become West Ham’s first-choice goalkeeper, replacing previous incumbent Jussi Jääskeläinen.
On 26 August 2016, Adrián received his first call-up to the senior Spain squad by new manager Julen Lopetegui for matches against Belgium and Liechtenstein.
