Adolfo Enríquez García (born 2 March 1990), known as Fofo, is a Spanish footballer who plays for CD Mirandés as a striker.

Football career[edit]

Born in Alicante, Valencian Community, Fofo came through the youth ranks at hometown team Alicante CF, making his senior debut for their reserves in Tercera División in 2009 before transferring to regional neighbours Villarreal CF. He made his professional debut for the B-side in Segunda División on 26 September of that year in a 2–2 home draw against Albacete Balompié as a late substitute,[1] making three more such appearances over the season. On 18 September 2011 he scored his first goals as a professional, a brace in a 3–3 draw with CD Guadalajara at Estadio El Madrigal.[2]

On 24 January 2012, Fofo signed for Segunda División B club SD Ponferradina,[3] helping them to promotion via the playoffs. He netted a career-best ten goals over the 2013–14 campaign, including two on 8 September 2013 in a 2–2 home draw to Sporting de Gijón.[4]

Fofo fulfilled a childhood dream by signing a two-year deal at fellow second level side RCD Mallorca on 29 July 2014.[5] On 31 January 2016, after cutting his ties, he switched to UE Llagostera[6] in an eventual unsuccessful attempt to save the Catalans from relegation in the same league.

On 14 July 2016, Fofo stayed in division two by agreeing to a one-year deal at CD Mirandés.[7]
