Football career[edit]

Born in Valencia, Valencian Community, Garcia signed for FC Barcelona at the age of 16 from local Levante UD, playing his first four senior seasons with the B-side in the third division and helping them to two top-two league finishes, with the reserves subsequently falling short in the promotion playoffs. He never appeared officially for the Catalans' first team, his only appearance being the second half of a friendly match with China on 22 April 2004, coming on as a substitute for Marc Overmars.

In the 2004 summer, García moved to Barça neighbours Gimnàstic de Tarragona, contributing with 28 league games in his second season as the club returned to La Liga after a 56-year absence. On 10 December 2006, he scored his only goal in the top division in a 2–1 home win against Levante,[1] but Nàstic was immediately relegated back.

After one year with Cádiz CF, playing sparingly in another first division promotion, García resumed his career in the lower leagues.
