Born in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Ricardo made his professional debuts with local CD Tenerife in 2005–06's second division, and achieved La Liga promotion in his fourth year, being an essential element of the success. In his first season in the top flight he appeared in 29 games (all starts, two goals), but his team was immediately relegated back.
In mid-June 2011, with the Canary Islands side relegated to the third level, Ricardo signed a three-year contract with Sporting de Gijón. He played in just three league matches in his first year, with another team relegation befalling.
