Club career

Born in Sabadell, Barcelona, Catalonia, Miguel Ángel began his career at hometown's CE Sabadell FC, where he played during the 1995–96 season in the third division. He moved to neighbours FC Barcelona in 1996, spending some time with its C and B-teams.

In the 1999 summer Ángel signed for Levante UD, where he spent two years playing in the second level. In the 2001–02 campaign he joined Málaga CF, being a key element in midfield during his five-year stay, scoring seven La Liga goals and helping the club to the 2002 UEFA Intertoto Cup.

For 2005–06 Miguel Ángel was transferred to Andalusia neighbours Real Betis in a deal worth 2 million, signing a five-year contract with the club.[1] In his first season he suffered knee ligament damage in a UEFA Champions League group stage match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, which Betis lost 0–4.[2]

In July 2007 Ángel returned to Levante, playing out 2007–08 on a one-year loan and being released at the end of the campaign, after which he returned to Málaga. After being relatively used in the first season in his second spell he was loaned to Gimnàstic de Tarragona, in division two.

On 13 July 2010, Miguél Ángel was released by Málaga. Two weeks later, at nearly 32, he signed a one-year contract with SD Ponferradina, freshly returned to the second division;[3] in the following transfer window, however, he was released.
