Club careerEdit

Agus was born in Bonete, Province of Albacete. After appearing in seven La Liga games for eventually relegated Albacete Balompié in the 2004–05 season,[1][2][3][4][5][6][7] he was bought by Real Madrid for €600,000 and immediately sent to its B team.[citation needed]

As Castilla were relegated from the Segunda División in 2006–07, Agus, alongside coach Míchel's son Adrián, were loaned to another side in that level, RC Celta de Vigo, with very different individual fates. The former returned to Real's reserves for the 2008–09 campaign.[8]

In the subsequent summer, Agus signed for three years with Córdoba CF, with his previous club holding 50% of his rights.[9] In the following years, safe for one season in the Turkish Süper Lig with Orduspor,[10] he continued competing in his country's second tier, representing AD Alcorcón, RCD Mallorca[11] and Albacete.[12]

On 27 January 2016, Agus signed with Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer.[13][14] Released on 9 June 2017,[15] the following month the 32-year-old moved to the Danish 1st Division and joined Esbjerg fB on a two-year deal.[16]

Agus signed for ATK of the Indian Super League on 26 July 2019, from Nea Salamina Famagusta FC.[17]
