Jaime Montero, former CD Málaga player passes away
Jaime Montero Rubio, a CD Málaga player between 1953 and 1957 passed away yesterday, Wednesday 29th August. The Club expresses its deepest condolences to Jaime’s family and friends. Rest in Peace.
Jaime Montero was born in Madrid on 9th October 1932. At 21 years old he arrived at CD Málaga for the 1953-54 season, playing as a left-winger. He debuted with Málaga in the inaugural match of the 53/54 season against UD Melilla at Estadio Municipal Álvarez Claro, with the match ending in victory for the Malaguistas by 0-4, with Jaime Montero scoring the third goal of the game.
Part of the starting line-up in the first League matches - Mora later took his place - he played a total of seven League matches, then later took part in a couple of First Division promotion games in which CD Málaga achieved its third promotion to the top flight of Spanish football.
In the First Division he only played six games in the 54/55 season, facing tough competition for his position from players such as Mora, Bernardi and Pahuet.
Again in the Second Division following CD Málaga’s relegation, he had a testimonial presence in the 55/56 and 56/57 seasons, leaving the Blue and Whites mid-way through the latter season, and after playing 22 official matches and scoring six goals with the Martiricos outfit, he moved to Rayo Vallecano in the Second Division.
After leaving active football, he remained linked to CD Málaga, playing the first few matches with the Club’s veterans.
