He amassed La Liga totals of 211 games and seven goals during 11 seasons, representing in the competition Atlético Madrid, Deportivo and Sevilla. In 2003, he started working as a manager.

Playing careerEdit

Born in Madrid, Alfredo's career professional career began with hometown's Getafe CF in 1988, and he moved the following year to La Liga with neighbours Atlético Madrid: he was personally signed by chairman Jesús Gil after a friendly, going on to experience some of his best years whilst with the team.

On 29 June 1991, Alfredo scored the game's only goal against RCD Mallorca in the Copa del Rey final,[1] also appearing in the following year, a 2–0 win over Real Madrid. He joined Deportivo de La Coruña in 1993 alongside teammate Donato, and produced roughly the same numbers, although he would be used more regularly.

Brought from the bench in the 1995 domestic cup final against Valencia CF, diminutive Alfredo scored with his head for the final 2–1 triumph.[2] Two years later he left for Sevilla FC, being rarely used during his three-and-a-half-year stay and finishing his career at nearly 36, with his first and second clubs.

Coaching careerEdit

Alfredo took up coaching immediately after retiring, mainly in the lower leagues. In 2007, he led CD Cobeña – also in Madrid – to the third division for the first time ever, but the club folded soon after.

Starting in 2012, Alfredo spent several years in charge of Atlético's reserve teams. On 10 February 2014, following a Segunda División B loss at CD Sariñena which left the B-side in the relegation zone, he was fired, being replaced by Óscar Mena who had also played for the side in the 90s.[3]
