David Prieto Gálvez (born 2 January 1983 in Seville, Andalusia) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Real Murcia as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

A product of Sevilla FC's youth system, Prieto made his first-team debut on 6 February 2005, playing the full 90 minutes as his team won 3–0 away against Levante UD. Appearing in four La Liga games that season and adding another four the following, he would alternate between the first and the second team in the next years.

In the 2006–07 campaign, as Sevilla Atlético reached the second division for the first time ever, Prieto served a loan in another team from Andalusia and the category, Xerez CD. The following season he appeared in eight top division matches with the main squad and started in seven of those, due to the absences of Javi Navarro (knee, entire season missed) and Julien Escudé (pubis, less than half of possible games), as the team finished fifth and qualified to the UEFA Cup.

After the death of Antonio Puerta in the fall of 2007, Sevilla wanted to retire the player's number 16 shirt.[1] Due to the Spanish league's strict rules on squad registration a retirement was impossible, and Puerta's shirt number was handed to Prieto, something he took great pride in.[2]

On 18 August 2009, after having featured in 13 league contests in 2008–09, Prieto was once again loaned to freshly promoted Xerez, in a season-long move, without any buying option at the end.[3] He contributed relatively as the club was immediately relegated back, and moved in August 2010 to CD Tenerife – also dropped from the top division – in the same predicament.
