Born in Málaga, Perico began his career with hometown's Málaga CF. Almost exclusively associated to the reserves during his early spell, he only appeared once in La Liga with the Andalusians' main squad, featuring 90 minutes in a 0–1 away loss against RCD Mallorca on 21 June 2003.
Perico equalled a career-best five goals in 2010–11, but he could not help prevent the Castile and León team from being relegated at the end of the campaign. He subsequently continued in the second level, joining Elche CF; he was released in September 2012, however, after the arrival of Carles Gil.
In January 2013, Perico went on trial with Azerbaijan Premier League club Neftchi Baku PFC, scoring in his first friendly game, against FC Aktobe. However, nothing came of it, and he returned to his country, signing with division three's Gimnàstic de Tarragona for 18 months.
