Born in Albacete, Castile-La Mancha, Alberto started playing as a senior with local Albacete Balompié's reserves. On 15 November 1998, after starter Julio Iglesias was sent off early into a home game against CP Mérida, he made his debut in Segunda División with the first team, going on to concede twice in a 0–2 home loss.
Alberto spent most of his career in Segunda División B, representing in the second level, other than Albacete, Ciudad de Murcia, UD Salamanca and Real Murcia for a total of 128 appearances. In the 2004–05 season he was part of RCD Mallorca's La Liga roster, being only third-choice behind Miguel Ángel Moyà and Sander Westerveld.
Alberto moved abroad for the first time in the 2014 summer at the age of 35, joining a host of compatriots – including manager Ángel García – at Polish club Piast Gliwice. He made his debut in top flight football on 20 July of that year, starting in a 0–4 Ekstraklasa defeat at Lech Poznań.
