† Appearances (Goals).
An extremely prolific goalscorer in the second division, Nino was born in Vera, Almería, and first appeared professionally with Elche CF, helping the side achieve promotion from the third level in the 1998–99 season. In the following campaign he made his debuts in division two, with 16 matches and two goals, and would go on to develop as an influential figure for the Alicante province team in the following years.
After having scored 20 goals during 2004–05, Nino made his La Liga debuts two seasons later, joining neighbours Levante UD. However, he would only find the net once throughout the entire campaign, in a 1–2 loss at CA Osasuna on 20 December 2006, but the Valencian managed to avoid relegation after finishing in 15th position.
Nino returned to the second level in the 2007–08 season, loaned to CD Tenerife, and finished the campaign with 18 goals, second best in the league behind Xerez CD's Yordi. The move was made permanent afterwards, on a three-year deal.
In 2008–09 season Nino was finally crowned the second tier's topscorer at 29 goals, and Tenerife returned to the top flight after a seven-year hiatus. In the following campaign he was again the club's main offensive reference: on 18 April 2010 he scored a hat-trick at home against Getafe CF (3–2), totalling 14 at the end of the season, but the Canary Islands side was eventually relegated; he bettered to 17 the following season, but his team dropped down another division.
