Club careerEdit

Born in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Alberto graduated from Deportivo de La Coruña's youth setup, and made his senior debut while on loan at local Montañeros CF. He returned to the Estadio Riazor in summer 2008, being immediately assigned to the reserves in Segunda División B.

In June 2009, Alberto signed with fellow league club SD Compostela, but after appearing sparingly he agreed to a deal at Coruxo FC in the same division in August 2010.[1] On 3 July 2012 he joined another reserve team, Getafe CF B,[2] appearing regularly for the side and also being called up to the main squad occasionally.[3]

On 18 July 2013, Alberto signed with Albacete Balompié also of the third level.[4] Initially a backup to Francisco Dorronsoro, he became first-choice in mid-February 2014 and appeared in 18 games during the season (play-offs included), as the club returned to Segunda División after a three-year absence.[5]

Alberto played his first match as a professional on 24 August 2014, starting in a 2–3 home loss against AD Alcorcón.[6] He lost his importance in the squad due to the arrival of Diego Rivas as well as injury problems,[7] and was released at the end of the campaign.

On 3 August 2015, Alberto moved to third-tier team SD Ponferradina.[8]
