David Sánchez Rodríguez (born 25 July 1982) is a Spanish footballer who plays as a defensive or attacking midfielder for Real Murcia.

Football career[edit]

A trainee of both Sevilla FC (early) and FC Barcelona (with whom he featured in a UEFA Champions League game, against Club Brugge KV[1]), Sánchez was born in Seville, Andalusia, and he made his debuts in La Liga with Albacete Balompié, in the 2003–04 season. On 19 October 2003, after a team effort, he scored from a lob in a 3–1 home win over Real Sociedad – his only goal of the campaign.[2]

Sánchez spent the second half of the 2004–05 campaign in the second division, loaned to Deportivo Alavés, and appeared rarely as the Basques returned to the top flight. He then completed another two solid years with Albacete.

In July 2007, Sánchez moved to Gimnàstic de Tarragona in the second level. Scarcely used, he joined Romania's FC Timişoara at the end of the season, being loaned to FC Gloria Buzău in January 2009 and being released in July after only 12 appearances for both clubs combined.

After spending the first months of the new campaign training on his own, Sánchez moved in January 2010 to CD Castellón in division two, making no appearances as the Valencian team also suffered relegation. In August, he signed with another side in that tier, Elche CF.

Sánchez left the club at the end of 2010–11, amid rumours that he had sold out to Granada CF during the top division promotion play-offs.[3][4] Shortly after, however, he signed for CD Atlético Baleares in the third division.

On 13 July 2013, Sánchez returned to Gimnàstic, now in the third tier of Spanish football.[5] On 23 July of the following year, he moved to UD Melilla in the same division.[6]
