Popularly known as Principito (Spanish for Little Prince), he came through the youth ranks at Atlas, then signed with Spain's Deportivo, where he spent for five seasons. In 2012 he joined Valencia, and two years later moved to PSV, with whom he won two Eredivisie titles.
A Mexican international since 2005, Guardado has played in four World Cups, four Gold Cups – winning the 2011, 2015 and 2019 tournaments – two Copa Américas and two Confederations Cups, and has won over 150 caps.
Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Guardado started playing professionally for Club Atlas, joining the team's youth system at the age of seven and going on to appear in two full Primera División seasons. He made his league debut on 20 August 2005, in a 3–2 home win against C.F. Pachuca.
In the summer of 2006, press speculation linked Guardado to several Serie A teams as well as Real Madrid, but Deportivo de La Coruña moved quickly and made an offer of €7 million for 75% of his rights. Atlas accepted the offer and the transfer was finalized on 7 July 2007, making him the most expensive ever Mexican player. Atlas retained a 25% sell-on-fee as long as it held the remaining 25% of his rights.
Guardado was officially introduced on 24 July 2007, with the Spanish team giving him the number 18 shirt. He made his La Liga debut on 26 August in a 0–3 home loss against UD Almería, and finished his first season with 26 games and five goals as Depor finished in ninth position, eventually qualifying to the UEFA Intertoto Cup – and the subsequent UEFA Cup, where he scored in a 3–0 group stage home win over Feyenoord.
Coach Miguel Ángel Lotina stated that Guardado was a key player for Deportivo, and admired his talent and character. He solidified himself as first-choice for the team, providing several assists and being charged with set pieces; he was also hampered by several injuries, however.
Guardado only managed to appear in 20 matches in the 2010–11 season, and the Galicians were relegated to the Segunda División after 20 years. On 27 March 2012 he confirmed that 2011–12 would be his last season with the club, and he scored a career-best 11 goals as his team won the division and returned to the top level.
On 28 May 2012, Guardado signed a four-year contract with Valencia CF. He made his debut on 19 August, playing 66 minutes in a 1–1 away draw against Real Madrid. During his first season he featured regularly at left back, mainly due to the serious injury of Jérémy Mathieu.
Guardado scored his first goal for the Che on 12 May 2013, contributing to a 4–0 win at Rayo Vallecano, and he featured mostly in the backline in the following months. On 30 January 2014, Bundesliga club Bayer 04 Leverkusen announced that they had signed him on loan for the rest of the season, with an option to buy afterwards. He made his debut on 2 February in a 0–1 loss to 1. FC Kaiserslautern for the DFB-Pokal, playing as a left wingback.
For 2014–15, Guardado joined PSV Eindhoven on loan. He made his Eredivisie debut on 31 August 2014 against Vitesse Arnhem at Philips Stadion. On 7 March of the following year he scored his first goal for his new club, contributing to a 3–0 away victory over Go Ahead Eagles.
On 15 March 2015, prior to the match against FC Groningen and amidst rumours of a transfer to AFC Ajax, PSV fans displayed a Mexican flag tifo and a banner in Spanish which read "Andrés Guardado, our Golden Mexican Eagle. He has to stay in PSV Eindhoven. Our house is your house, Andrés". On 27 March, PSV announced that they had reached a deal with Valencia over a permanent transfer, for an undisclosed fee; Guardado signed a three-year contract. On 18 April, with three matches to spare, the team won the league championship after a 4–1 win over SC Heerenveen, with him playing the full 90 minutes.
The following season, Guardado contributed with 25 appearances to help the side successfully defend their title. On 31 July he was also in the starting eleven against Feyenoord, who were defeated 1–0 in the Johan Cruyff Shield.
Despite rumors linking him to a possible move to Major League Soccer clubs Atlanta United and Los Angeles FC, it was announced on 27 July 2017 that Spanish club Real Betis had signed Guardado for a reported €2.3 million on a three-year deal.
Guardado made his first appearance for Mexico in a friendly match against Hungary on 14 December 2005, four months after his first-team debut with Atlas. He was then called up to represent his country at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, where he appeared in the round-of-16 1–2 loss to Argentina. After the departure of manager Ricardo Lavolpe, his replacement Hugo Sánchez kept Guardado in his squad.
Guardado's first game under the new manager was against the United States. He came off the bench and the game ended in a 0–2 defeat. On 28 February 2007, in a friendly with Venezuela, he scored his first international goal.
In the final of the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Guardado scored the opening goal against the United States. During the second half he collided head-on with Jonathan Spector while both attempted to head the ball, but recovered to play the rest of the match, which ended in a 1–2 loss. He also participated in that year's Copa América, scoring the third goal against Uruguay in the third-place match.
Guardado assisted a goal by Rafael Márquez in the opening game of the 2010 World Cup against hosts South Africa, in a 1–1 draw. He appeared in three out of four games, in another last-16 exit at the hands of Argentina.
On 12 June 2011, Guardado scored two goals in a 4–1 win over Costa Rica in the 2011 Gold Cup. He found the net again in the final in a 4–2 success against the United States, as Mexico retained the trophy.
On 5 March 2014, Guardado made his 100th appearance for Mexico, in a friendly with Nigeria. Selected by Miguel Herrera for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, he started all the games as a left midfielder, and scored in the last group phase game against Croatia, a 3–1 win. Following the end of World Cup, Herrera declared Guardado would captain the following September friendlies against Chile and Bolivia.
Guardado scored six times at the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, including a penalty kick in the last minute of extra time in the quarter-final against Costa Rica (1–0). In the semi-finals against Panama, he scored twice from the penalty spot to help his country come from behind and win 2–1 and, in the final against Jamaica, scored the opener in an eventual 3–1 win. Subsequently, he won the Golden Ball Award as most outstanding player.
Picked for the Copa América Centenario squad, Guardado was sent off for two bookable offences in the first game, a 3–1 win over Uruguay at University of Phoenix Stadium on 5 June 2016. He also made the final 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, his first as captain. He would go on to appear in all group stage matches, including the round-of-16 loss against Brazil.
On June 2019, he was called up by Tata Martino to participate in the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. In the second group stage match against Canada, he was subbed in for Érick Gutiérrez at the 37th minute following an injury he picked up, Guardado would go on to score for Mexico twice, helping them win 3–1 and winning the Man of the Match award. As Mexico would win first place in the group stage, he would break various CONCACAF-based records, among them the most-capped Mexican player in the CONCACAF Gold Cup and the only Mexican player who has scored in four editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. As Mexico would go on to win tournament, he would be listed in the tournament's Best XI.
Style of playEdit
Guardado started his career as a winger. He started appearing as left-back later at Valencia, at PSV he began to operate as a box-to-box midfielder, and as of recently has played as standard central midfielder with more defensive duties. He has good passing and dribbling skills, also being proficient at free kicks and holding up the ball; he also possessed a powerful and accurate shot from distance, and he was also capable of aiding his team defensively due to his work-rate and stamina. He has been described as playing closer to the "Iberian midfielder archetype," focused on possession in the center of the field, winning the ball back with smart positioning instead of tackles and then pushing it forward.
Guardado idolised his compatriot and national teammate Rafael Márquez, citing him as an influence in his playing style.

The midfielder began his career stationed on the left flank, where he got himself noticed with his speed and long-range shooting skills. As his career developed, he shifted to central midfield and now performs more defensive duties.
