CareerEdit

Grisales started his career in 1998 with Atlético Nacional where he helped the team to win the Colombian Championship in 1999 (in spite he and his family are Independiente Medellín's fans). In 1999, he joined San Lorenzo in Argentina, but he only played 6 games for the club before returning to Nacional.

In 2001 Grisales was part of the Colombia squad that won the Copa América 2001.

He had his first play with Colón de Santa Fe, Argentina in 2004, followed by spells with Barcelona SC (Ecuador) and Independiente Medellín (Colombia) before rejoining Colón in 2006.

During his time at Independiente in Argentina, Grisales suffered through a series of injuries and personal problems that prevented him from playing regularly and in 2009 he returned to Colombia to play for Envigado Fútbol Club.

In 2011, Grisales returned to play for Deportivo Pereira.
