Football careerEdit

Born in Mérida, Badajoz, Extremadura, Carlos David graduated from Valencia CF's youth setup. He made his debuts as a senior with the reserves, appearing several seasons in Tercera División and Segunda División B.

On 20 July 2009, Carlos David signed for Belgian Pro League side R.E. Mouscron.[1] He played his first match as a professional on 1 August, starting in a 2–1 away win against K.R.C. Genk.[2] He scored his first professional goals on 5 December, netting a brace in a 2–1 success at K.S.V. Roeselare.[3]

Carlos David left the club in late December 2009 due to its financial troubles, and joined Celta de Vigo's reserve team in the third level the following 15 January.[4] He subsequently resumed his career in the same tier, representing CD Teruel,[5] UD Melilla,[6] FC Cartagena[7] and SD Huesca;[8] with the latter, he notably scored against FC Barcelona in the Copa del Rey, but in a 1–8 away defeat.[9]

On 5 July 2018, after achieving promotion to La Liga, Carlos David terminated his contract with Huesca and signed for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.[10]
