He also had a season, the 2003 Clausura, in El Salvador with Alianza.[1] He was bought by the Chinese club Changchun Yatai on December 2005, along with his teammate Victor Mena and Olimpia player Samuel Caballero.[2] He returned to Honduras in summer 2009 and was snapped up by Marathón just in time for the 2009 Apertura.[3]

He joined Necaxa from Platense for the 2010 Apertura season[4] but claiming the club owed him money he left them[5] and he returned to Platense in August 2011,[6] but he moved abroad again to play for Guatemalan side Juventud Retalteca in January 2012.[7] In June 2012 he returned to Platense to seal another contract with the club.[8]
