My beginnings as football Coach were in 1999 during six seasons at Getafe CF Youth Academy and then I signed with Club Atlético de Madrid during seven seasons where I also began to perform functions at the Methodology and Analysis Department.

Between 2012 and 2014 I had the opportunity to live my first international experience, first as Head Coach at Saudi Arabia National Team U19 during seven months, and then as Assistant Coach at First National Team headed by Juan Ramón López Caro during two years. I had the opportunity to play tournaments such as the 2015 Asian Cup Qualification,2014 Gulf Cup, 2012 Arab Cup …. accumulating a considerable number of international matches.

In 2015 I started my second stage at Club Atlético de Madrid until 2017, where I was the Performance Supervisor of Youth Academy, Sports Director of Wanda’s Project, Manager of Performance Development for Chinese players with the aim to integrate them in professional teams, Member of Youth Academy Methodology Department and Performance Supervisor of International Projects. At the same time, during the 2015-16 season I was the First Team analyst.

In 2016, during my second stage at Atlético de Madrid, in a 5 month hiatus, I had the opportunity to live my second international experience at Professional football at Club Dalian Yifang in China, first as assistant in the first team and then to close the season as Head Coach being also the Manager of Development Project to professionalize the Club. Once the season ended I joined my duties at Atlético de Madrid.

After finishing my second stage at At.Madrid, I returned to Saudi Arabia to join the club Ettifaq F.C. where in the season 2017-18 I worked as a coach in the sub-19 team, and in the last part of the season to become part of the professional team as an assistant and perform supervisory functions.

During the 2018-19 season, I occupied the position of head coach in the professional team of Ettifaq in the Saudi Professional League, after starting the year with other duties. I took charge of the team from day 11 along with my coaching staff. We have completed another very interesting stage in which we add an experience in a competitive and special league.

After this stage in Arabia, I have been working in the Moroccan Football Federation, where I have worked on a project to improve the development of football in the country, occupying the position of Under-17 Head Coach, forming a team for the future, with players playing in European clubs and others that are in local leagues. On the other hand, I have also worked in other departments, in the methodology department , creating a game philosophy that identifies football in the country and in Coach Education department , where I have worked as a teacher in several coaching courses for CAF levels.

Once the stage in the Moroccan Federation is over, I return to Saudi Arabia for the third time to start my second stage in the Football Federation, becoming part of the U23 Team as a technical assistant, where after the Tokyo Olympics, It is intended to re-train a generation that can be successful at the national team level in the upcoming competitions, the Asian Cup, the Gulf Cup … and with the intention of qualifying this team for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
