Club careerEdit

A product of Valencia CF's youth system – he arrived aged 15 from hometown's Albacete Balompié – Sisi first served loan stints in the second division, with Hércules CF and Real Valladolid, with a 2007 top flight promotion with the latter (he also appeared in the third level with the former).[1] Whilst playing with Valladolid, the football site Goal.com mentioned him as one of the emergent talents in Spain.[2]

In July 2008, Sisi was sold by Valencia to La Liga club Recreativo de Huelva.[3] Midway through his first and only season he was diagnosed with hepatitis A, being rendered unavailable for two months;[4] he made his return as a substitute on 4 April 2009, in a 0–1 home loss against Andalusia neighbours Sevilla FC.[5]

On 24 August 2009, after Recre's relegation, Sisi returned to Valladolid, signing a three-year contract.[6] He scored on his debut in a 2–1 win at Real Zaragoza,[7] but was injured through most of the campaign and suffered relegation for the second consecutive time.

Sisi scored a career-best five goals in 2011–12 (in 36 appearances) as the Castile and León side returned to the top flight after two years.[8] In the subsequent off-season he joined CA Osasuna,[9] being hindered by two severe knee injuries during his spell, the last one contracted after only five minutes of the home fixture against FC Barcelona.[10][11]

In the summer of 2015, aged 29, Sisi moved abroad for the first time, joining Suwon FC in the K League Challenge.[12] In the following transfer window, he reunited with former Osasuna boss Jan Urban at Lech Poznań after agreeing to a six-month contract.[13]

On 25 August 2016, Sisi signed a one-year deal with Veria FC.[14]

International careerEdit

In the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Championship, Sisi was a key element for Spain, who finished runners-up to Brazil (0–1).[15] FIFA described him in their technical report as a "...well-developed technique and ball control, fast and agile", as he was listed amongst the nation's Talented Players list.[16]

Two years later, Sisi appeared against France in the 2005 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, as the national team failed to qualify for the final stages in Northern Ireland, losing 0–1 in the elite round.[17] In 2007, he progressed to the under-21s.[18]
