Club career[edit]

Born in Albacete, Castile-La Mancha, Pulpo was an Albacete Balompié youth graduate. He made his senior debuts with Atlético Tarazona in 2006, in Tercera División.

On 17 August 2008 Pulpo first arrived in Segunda División B, after joining Real Murcia Imperial.[1] On 18 July 2010 he moved to CD Leganés, also in the third division.[2]

Pulpo acted as a backup to Rubén Falcón during his first and only season at the Madrid side. On 16 July 2011 he signed for fellow league team Orihuela CF,[3] again featuring sparingly.

In August 2012 Pulpo moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining Cypriot First Division side Doxa Katokopias F.C.. Late in the month he was loaned to fellow league team AEK Larnaca F.C., with Alexandre Negri moving in the opposite direction.[4]

On 5 June 2013 Pulpo signed a one-year deal with AEL Limassol.[5]
