Alberto Machimbarrena Aguirrebengoa (31 March 1888 in San Sebastián, Guipuzcoa, Spain - 19 July 1923 in Guadarrama, Spain) is a former Spanish footballer who played as a midfielder.


During his career he played simultaneously for two clubs, Real Sociedad, which was the team of his birth's city, and Real Madrid. While he played for Real Madrid he was also studying architecture in Madrid.

He became the leader of Real Madrid, captaining the team which won the Copa del Rey in 1917. He played for Real Madrid 8 official matches, all of them in the Copa del Rey, and failed to score. For Real Sociedad he played 30 official matches between 1910 and 1922.

After retirement, in 1922, he returned to play some matches for Real Sociedad, which was in need of footballers.

He died premature in 1923 in Guadarrama (Madrid), because of tuberculosis.

A statue of Machimbarrena and Sotero Aranguren (player of Real Madrid, who also died premature), rises from 1925 at the entrance of the first club's locker room at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
