Football careerEdit

Born in Berga, Barcelona, Catalonia, brought up in the local RCD Espanyol youth ranks, Miki spent the bulk of his years in the reserves. In two consecutive matchdays in the 2005–06 season, he managed two substitute appearances for the first team: at Villarreal CF (0–4 loss)[1] and at home against Sevilla FC (5–0 win).[2]

In the summer of 2006, Miki was released and joined another club in La Liga, Getafe CF, but was immediately loaned to the Real Jaén and never appeared again for the former side. Released, he resumed his career in the third division with the CE Sabadell FC and the UE Lleida.

Still in his province of birth, in 2010–11 Miki signed with the Gimnàstic de Tarragona in the second tier.[3] His last experience at the professional level came during the following campaign at the age of 27, eventually being relegated to the CD Alcoyano.[4]
