Biography

On Tuesday 24th July 2018, the Club confirmed the signing of Fabricio Agosto Ramirez from Besiktas for an undisclosed fee.

Fabri, as he is better known, penned a three-year deal, with the Whites holding an option to extend by a further 12 months.

He is well known to Fulham’s Goalkeeping Coach Jose Sambade Carreira, who he worked closely with at Deportivo de la Coruna.

Born in Las Palmas, Fabri came through the ranks at local side UD Vecindario before being snapped up by Deportivo in 2005.

His La Liga debut came in the 2007/08 season and he went on to make a handful of appearances in Spain’s top flight with Deportivo, subsequent to his permanent move to Real Valladolid.

Fabri’s first consistent run of games came while on loan at Recreativo Huelva in 2010/11, who he helped to a mid-table finish in the Segunda Division, keeping 15 clean sheets throughout the campaign.

His form earned him a switch to top flight outfit Real Betis, who had just won promotion as Segunda Liga champions in 2011.

Fabri battled with Castro for the number one jersey at Betis, displacing his compatriot in goal midway through the 2011/12 campaign and going on to play 15 times in the league before the end of the season.

He rejoined Deportivo for 2013/14 and was part of the side which won promotion back to La Liga at the first time of asking, and the following term his 11 clean sheets in 31 appearances helped the club secure its top flight status.

A year later, Fabri joined Besiktas who had just won the Turkish Super Lig. Established as the number one goalkeeper, he kept 14 clean sheets as Besiktas retained their title in 2016/17.

His final season wasn’t as prosperous for the club, but Fabri still only conceded 30 goals in his 34 league outings as Besiktas finished fourth.

During his time in Turkey Fabri featured in European competition for the first time, making 11 appearances in the Champions League, and six in the Europa League, while he was also voted as the best goalkeeper in the Super Lig for the last two years in a row.
