He played as a holding midfield and was known for his strength and sacrifices. He formed partnership with Sancho and Josep Samitier on the midfield.[1] He was a regular in the starting line-ups from the 1914/15 season until the 1925/26 season.[1]

He was the first player in the history of Barça to be granted a testimonial match. This took place on 4 February 1917 at the stadium in Industria Street when he was still an active player.[1]
