Club career[edit]

Born in Guadalajara, Castile-La Mancha, Juan Carlos made his senior debuts with CD Guadalajara in the 2004–05 season, in Tercera División. He joined Rayo Vallecano on 26 July 2005, returning to youth football.[1]

Juan Carlos was promoted to the reserves in the 2007 summer, and appeared regularly with the side in the fourth level and Segunda División B. On 5 June 2011 he played his first match as a professional, starting in a 2–3 home loss against FC Barcelona B for the Segunda División championship.[2]

On 4 July 2011, after being deemed suplus to requirements,[3] Juan Carlos moved to Hércules CF also in the second level.[4] On 2 July 2013, he signed for Córdoba CF after rejecting a contract extension from the Valencians.[5]

Juan Carlos appeared in 15 matches in his debut season, as the Andalusians returned to La Liga after a 42-year absence. He made his debut in the competition on 25 August 2014, starting in a 0–2 away loss against Real Madrid.[6]

Juan Carlos returned to his first club Rayo on 6 August 2015, after agreeing to a two-year deal.[7] On 23 July of the following year, after suffering top level relegation, he signed a two-year contract with Elche CF.[8]

On 28 June 2017, after suffering another team relegation, Juan Carlos agreed to a two-year deal with CD Lugo still in the second tier.[9]
