In summer 2011 he announced to leave Real España while still on a six months contract after receiving an offer from Olimpia but España did not have the intention to let him go. In the end he had to return to España after a transfer to Olimpia or a foreign club did not materialise. Espana then decided to sack him and he joined Victoria for the 2011 Apertura.
Born in La Ceiba, he now lives in Puerto Cortes. He is the son of former Honduran Olympic footballer Victoria Óscar García and the half-brother of national team winger Oscar Boniek García and former Motagua player Samir García.
