Vega played several years and for various teams in the lower league Primera B Metropolitana and in 2007 he played for Platense in the Primera B Nacional, both in Argentina. In Platense, he was the top goal scorer with 13 goals.
Subsequently, Vega joined Ecuadorian Emelec. He scored his first goal with Emelec on his debut on the Ecuadorian League against Macara. In that game he also made the assist in fellow striker Gonzalo Ludueña’s goal.
Vega is known to be a family oriented man. When he was signed by Ecuadorian side Emelec he arrived to Guayaquil with both his parents, his sister and his soon to be wife, Lorena. In December 2007 Vega received a degree as a Public Accountant and according to him, getting that degree was the main reason why he did not leave Argentina earlier despite of all the offers from abroad he has had in his career.
Because he is not a tall or strong Center Forward, Vega plays better near the opposite goal and when it comes to finishing a play he has demonstrated to be as accurate with his left foot as he is with his natural right foot. He is also a very good header.
