Club career

Valencia

Xisco was born in Manacor, Balearic Islands. After graduating from Valencia CF's B-team he moved on loan to Recreativo de Huelva in the second division, scoring ten goals during his only season. He then joined CD Tenerife in 2001–02, playing 28 games with one successful strike before returning (always loaned by Valencia) to his previous club for the 2002–03 campaign, still in La Liga.

Xisco returned to Valencia in the 2003 summer for two additional seasons, appearing in 22 contests as the Che conquered the 2004 league title. He added eight games in the club's victorious campaign in the UEFA Cup, also in that year.

Betis

Xisco moved to Real Betis in 2005 on a six-year link,[1] often delivering in various offensive positions and displaying all-around teamwork. He netted three goals in 2006–07, including a couple of late goals against Racing de Santander[2] and Gimnàstic de Tarragona[3] as the Andalusians barely avoided top flight relegation in the last matchday.

In an unassuming 2008–09 season, which ended in relegation, Xisco only featured in nine matches, scoring once. Dark spots included being replaced after having himself being used as a substitute in a 1–2 home defeat against Málaga CF, on 11 January 2009.[4]

Levante / Later years

In the dying minutes of the August 2009 transfer window, Xisco rescinded his Betis contract and moved to Levante UD also in the second level, for two seasons. In his first campaign he played the most he had in years, also scoring eight times as the Valencian Community club returned to the top division after a two-year absence.

Xisco contributed with 26 games – 18 starts – in 2010–11, as Levante finally retained its division status. On 22 January 2011 he scored his only goal of the season, in a 1–4 away loss against Sevilla FC,[5] and he was released in June.

Already aged 30 Xisco moved abroad for the first time, joining Premier League and also scored a career-best 22 goals, best in the competition.[7]

On 14 December 2014 Xisco returned to his homeland, after agreeing to a 18-month deal with third level's Gimnàstic de Tarragona.[8]

Personal life

Xisco is the older brother of another footballer, Toni Muñoz. He appeared once for RCD Mallorca's first team,[9] but spent the vast majority of his career in the lower leagues of his country.
