Club career[edit]

Born in La Dehesa de Ríotinto, Province of Huelva, Fidel finished his development with local Recreativo de Huelva, and made his senior debuts with the B-team in the 2008–09 season, in Tercera División. He played his first game as a professional on 15 May 2010, coming on as a second-half substitute and scoring his team's goal in a 1–1 away draw against Córdoba CF for the Segunda División championship.[1]

On 12 July 2012, Fidel terminated his contract with the Andalusians and joined fellow league club Elche CF.[2] He was an ever-present player in his first year, and also scored four goals as the Valencians returned to La Liga after 24 years of absence.

Fidel made his top flight debut on 19 August 2013, playing 33 minutes in a 0–3 loss at Rayo Vallecano.[3] His first league goal came on 20 October, the winner in a 2–1 away success over Real Betis.[4]

On 9 July 2014, Fidel joined fellow league side Córdoba in a loan deal.[5] After appearing regularly, he agreed to a permanent move in May 2015.[6]

On 19 July 2016, after scoring a career-best 11 goals during the campaign, Fidel put pen to paper to a five-year contract at UD Almería.[7]
