He started out at FC Barcelona but, after only six competitive appearances with the first team, he went on to resume his career in both Segunda División and Segunda División B. In La Liga, he also represented Atlético Madrid, Getafe and Osasuna, amassing totals of 69 games and eight goals.
Nano was born in A Coruña, Galicia. At age 16, he seemed on the verge of a promising future as he was already playing with FC Barcelona's reserves, and the following year he made his first-team – and La Liga – debut, against Real Zaragoza; he would however, not be able to progress any further in his five-year stay with the Catalans, only appearing in three more games with the main squad.
After a solid first season with Atlético Madrid, with qualification to the UEFA Intertoto Cup, Nano's career faded into obscurity as he was rarely featured with another club from Madrid, Getafe CF, and slightly more with Cádiz CF (the latter in the second division).
Nano then joined lowly Racing de Ferrol, impressing enough to return to the second level and signing a three-year contract with CD Numancia. He scored five goals in 37 matches in the 2011–12 campaign, helping the Soria side finish in tenth position.
