Football career[edit]

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Alfonso joined RCD Espanyol in 2002 at the age of 13 from neighbours CE L'Hospitalet. Two years later, however, he returned to his previous club, with which he made his senior debuts, appearing in two Segunda División B games in the 2007–08 season as his team eventually suffered relegation; he was an essential first-team unit in the subsequent promotion, then scored ten goals from 30 appearances to help them retain their status.[1]

In late March 2011, Alfonso moved to Espanyol again, alongside teammate Cristian Gómez – the transfer being effective as of July – initially being assigned to the B-side.[2] On 2 October 2011 he made his main squad (and La Liga) debut, playing 16 minutes in a 0–4 home loss against Real Madrid.[3]

On 15 August 2013, Alfonso joined AD Alcorcón in Segunda División, in a season-long loan deal.[4] He scored his first professional goal on 1 September, netting the first in a 3–0 home win over Recreativo de Huelva.[5]

On 29 August 2014, Alfonso was loaned to fellow league team Girona FC, also in a one-year deal.[6] Roughly a year later, he terminated his contract with the Pericos.[7]
