† Appearances (Goals).
A youth graduate from Real Madrid who never made it past the B-side, Sousa played his first La Liga match for Real Valladolid (on loan from Madrid) on 31 August 2002, in a 1–0 away win against Racing de Santander. After another season with Valladolid – which now held the totality of the player's rights – which ended in relegation, he would play two further campaigns in the second division, subsequently joining Getafe CF, a team from the capital outskirts, for 2006–07's top flight.
During two 1/2 seasons Sousa appeared sparingly for Getafe, scoring twice in a 2–4 loss at RCD Mallorca on 7 October 2007. He featured in no games whatsoever in the first part of 2008–09, which led to a January 2009 loan to Rayo Vallecano in the second level.
In late July 2009, Sousa was released by Getafe and continued in division two, moving to Albacete Balompié and being relegated in his second year. In late January 2012, aged nearly 32, he moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining several compatriots at Nea Salamis Famagusta FC in the Cypriot First Division.
