Club career[edit]

Born in Santiago, Martínez joined Universidad Católica's youth system in 1998, aged 11, and made his first-team debuts in 2007. Martínez scored his first goal on 6 October 2008, in a 5–3 away win over Universidad de Concepción. In the following three seasons he was an undisputed starter, losing his place, however, in the 2012 season.

In July 2013, Martínez rejected a new four-year deal from the UC,[1] and after being linked to Colo-Colo and Universidad de Chile in August,[2] he stated a desire to move abroad in December.[3]

On 27 December 2013 Martínez joined La Liga side UD Almería on loan until the end of the season.[4] He made his debut in the top flight of Spanish football on 12 April of the following year, starting in a 0–4 loss at Real Madrid.[5]

On 19 July 2014, Martínez returned to Chile, joining O'Higgins.[6]

International career[edit]

After appearing with the Chile under-17s at the 2003 South American Under-17 Football Championship, Martínez was a member of the Chile under-20 squad, which finished fourth at the 2007 South American Youth Championship in Paraguay, being a regular starter. He appeared at the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup, and the following year appeared at the Toulon Tournament.

Martínez made his full squad debut on 26 January 2008, starting in a 0–0 draw against Japan.[7]
