Born in Motril, Granada, Armando began playing football in his hometown, with Motril CF. In 2002 he moved to Andalusia neighbours Málaga CF to finish his formation, playing his first two professional seasons with its B-team in Segunda División.
In 2006–07 Armando was definitely promoted to the first team, appearing regularly as the side was also in the second level. For the following campaign he moved to La Liga with Levante UD, making his competition debut on 17 February 2008 in a 2–1 home win against CA Osasuna; in the middle of a serious financial crisis, the Valencian club would also be relegated.
After a spell with FC Cartagena, which he helped promote to division two, Armando stayed nonetheless in Segunda División B, signing with FC Barcelona's reserves. He was only played regularly in the last season of his three-year spell, starting in all 23 of his second division appearances under the guidance of new manager Eusebio Sacristán.
On 18 December 2012, after an unassuming spell in Mexico with Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz, Armando returned to his country and joined Córdoba CF in the second level, penning a two 1/2-year contract. He made his official debut on 10 January of the following year, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–5 away loss against former team Barcelona for the Copa del Rey, and appeared regularly during the second half of the league campaign, forming a solid partnership with Kiko.
