Club career[edit]

Born in Talavera la Real, Province of Badajoz, Fausto joined Valencia CF' youth system in 2004, aged 14. In 2006–07, still a junior, he made his senior debuts, playing one match for the reserves in Segunda División B; in January 2009 he was loaned to neighbouring CF La Nucía[1] and, six months later, he moved to Segunda División B club Caravaca CF in the same predicament.

In the 2010 summer, still owned by the Che, Fausto joined CD La Muela also in the third level, starting in all of his league appearances but suffering team relegation. On 27 August 2011, he rescinded with Valencia and signed with UD Melilla in the same category;[2] he scored his first goal as a senior on 6 May 2012, against AD Ceuta.

On 12 January 2013, Fausto signed a contract with Real Betis, being assigned to the reserves.[3] On 8 March he made his official debut with the Andalusians' first team, replacing Dorlan Pabón in the dying minutes in a 2–1 La Liga home win against CA Osasuna.[4]

On 15 August 2014, Fausto signed a one-year deal with Segunda División's AD Alcorcón.[5] He scored his first professional goal on 26 October, but in a 1–3 home loss against Real Zaragoza.[6]

On 1 July 2016, Fausto signed a two-year deal with CA Osasuna, newly promoted to the main category.[7] On 24 January 2018, he signed a 18-month contract with Cádiz CF in the second division, after cutting ties with his previous club.[8]

On 9 July 2018, Fausto terminated his contract with Cádiz,[9] and signed for fellow league team Extremadura UD eight days later.[10]
