Football careerEdit

Rosado was born in Huelva, Andalusia. After starting playing for local Recreativo de Huelva in the third division he signed with Rayo Vallecano for two seasons in the second level, promoting in his first year but scoring only twice in 20 league games in the process.

Rosado's most steady and fruitful period came with Pamplona's CA Osasuna: after being the team's top scorer in his first season with 11 goals, as they returned to La Liga after six years[2][3]– whilst Recreativo was relegated – he repeated the feat the following campaign (at 14),[4] helping the Navarrese barely avoid relegation and taking his tally in his first three top flight seasons to 25 goals, in 100 appearances.

After an uneventful loan at Xerez CD, Rosado was released by Osasuna in September 2006.[4] After nearly one year out of football, he moved to Málaga CF; he featured scarcely during his one-and-a-half season spell, as the club returned to the top level in 2008.[5]

Rosado joined UD Melilla in August 2008, but terminated his contract only a few months after, and retired from the game aged 34. In 11 years in the two major levels, he amassed totals of 239 matches and 54 goals.
