Club career


Born in Vigo, Galicia, Mariño played for Villarreal CF since the age of 14, having already represented four teams as a youth. He made his professional debuts in the 2010–11 season, helping the reserves barely avoid relegation from the second division while appearing in 38 games.[1]

In the following campaign Mariño was again first-choice, but as the main squad suffered relegation in La Liga, the B's were forced to drop down to the third level even though the team finished in a comfortable 12th position. After the departures of longtime incumbent Diego López and 41-year-old César (the latter retired), he was promoted to the first team by manager Julio Velázquez – also his boss in the second side.


On 5 July 2013 Mariño signed a five-year contract with Real Valladolid, with Villarreal retaining an option to buy him back for 300,000.[2] He made his debut in the top flight on 17 August, in a 1–2 home loss against Athletic Bilbao.[3]


On 8 August 2014, Mariño moved to fellow league team Levante UD.[4]

International career

Mariño won his first cap for the Spanish under-21 team in 2011. Also that year, he was selected by manager Luis Milla for his UEFA European Championship squad.

In the tournament in Denmark, Mariño was a backup to Atlético Madrid's David de Gea as the nation won its third title in the category.
