Born in Málaga, Andalusia, Sánchez played youth football with hometown club Málaga CF in 2003, but never appeared as a senior for the club, eventually leaving in 2003. He went on to appear for several lower-league teams over the following six seasons, never competing in higher than Segunda División B, with Real Murcia Imperial. He also represented CD Alhaurino, CD Baza and Real Betis B.
Sánchez signed for Inverness Caledonian Thistle in Scotland on 1 August 2009, following a trial period. He made his club debut in the same day, in a 4–0 home win against Annan Athletic for the season's Scottish League Cup.
Sánchez was released by Inverness in June 2011. The following month, he began a trial with A-League club Wellington Phoenix FC, appearing in pre-season against Miramar Rangers just two hours after getting off the plane. On 5 September, it was announced that he had signed a one-year contract. On 9 June 2013, he was released alongside 4 other players from the Wellingon Phoenix squad.
