Football career


Sánchez in action for Espanyol in 2008

Born in Mataró, Barcelona, Catalonia, Sánchez was a product of RCD Espanyol's youth system. He made his debut for the first team on 24 April 2005, playing 85 minutes from the bench in a 3–1 home win against Real Zaragoza. It was his sole appearance of the season.

Sánchez was loaned to second division's Real Madrid Castilla in January 2007 and, at the end of the campaign, which ended in relegation, was loaned again, to Racing de Santander in La Liga, appearing significantly as the Cantabrian side achieved a first-ever qualification to the UEFA Cup.

In July 2008 Sánchez returned to Espanyol, scoring his first official goal for the club in a 1–1 home draw with Getafe CF on 20 September. He played the entire season on the right flank, as the Pericos eventually avoided relegation.


Sánchez agreed to join Sevilla FC in July 2009 in a four-year deal worth 4 million, with an additional one million being added if the Andalusians attained certain goals.[1] On 1 January 2010, it was announced that he would be unable to play football again until 'rigorous tests' were carried out on his heart, after he complained of pains.[2] His season outputs consisted of seven league games – helping Sevilla to the fourth place – and two in the Copa del Rey which the club won, both legs of the clash against lowly CF Atlético Ciudad (9–3 on aggregate).

On 18 January 2011, after more than one year out of football, Sánchez returned to active – he had already been an unused substitute the previous week against former side Espanyol – starting in a Spanish Cup match against Villarreal CF, and helping the title holders reach the semifinals after a 3–0 home win (6–3 on aggregate).[3]


On 23 June 2011, Sánchez left Sevilla and joined neighbours Málaga CF for €2.8 millions, signing a four-year contract.[4] He made his debut for his new club on 25 September, appearing as a right back in a 0–0 draw at Zaragoza.[5]

On 3 January 2012 Sánchez opened the scoring in a Spanish Cup tie against Real Madrid, netting through a header in an eventual 2–3 away loss (2–4 on aggregate).[6]
