Club career[edit]

Born in Sant Joan d'Alacant, Alicante, Valencian Community,[1] Muñoz played youth football for local Alicante CF from ages 9–15, and finished his formation with neighbouring Hércules CF. In 2012, he was crowned under-18 champion with the Valencian Community autonomous team[2] and, on 22 September of that year, whilst still a junior, he made his debut as a professional, coming on as a 73rd-minute substitute for Pepe Mora in a 0–3 home loss against FC Barcelona B for the Segunda División championship.[3]

On 20 September 2013 Muñoz penned a new three-year deal with the Blanquiazules,[4] and was assigned to FC Jove Español San Vicente, the club's farm team in Tercera División. On 19 August 2014 he signed his first professional contract – running until 2018 – being definitely promoted to the main squad now in Segunda División B.[5]

On 21 July 2016, Muñoz signed a three-year contract with Sevilla FC, being assigned to the reserves in the second division.[6] On 24 July 2018, he signed a three-year deal with fellow league team Real Zaragoza.[7]
