Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Benítez made his breakthrough into Lanús' first team in 2002. Between 2004 and 2006, he spent time with Talleres and Gimnasia de Jujuy before returning to Lanús. In 2007, Benítez was part of the Lanús squad that won the first top flight championship in the club's history. In May 2008, Benítez agreed a four-year contract to play for Porto in the Primeira Liga.[3] On 17 August 2009, Porto loaned the Argentine left-back to Leixões for a season.[4] However, in October 2009, Benitez signed for Argentine club San Lorenzo, as replacement for the injured left-backs Aureliano Torres and Sebastián Luna.[5]

In 2016, after spells with Estudiantes, Talleres (in 2013 & 2014) and Olimpia, Serrano joined Atletico Rafaela to play in the Argentine Primera División.[6]
