He signed a five-year contract with Brazilian club Sport Recife in July 2013.[3] In December 2013 he said he wished to leave the club and return to former club The Strongest due to lack of first-team games.[4][5]

In December 2017 it was announced he would sign for Liga MX with club Puebla.[6]

He made his international debut for Bolivia in 2011,[2][7] and has appeared in FIFA World Cup qualifying matches for them.[8]

He represented Bolivia at the 2015 Copa América and was critical of the Bolivian press coverage of the team's performance in the tournament, believing them to be unfairly negative.[9]
