His comments almost cost him his place when after being dropped for some friendly matches he criticized the coach for picking Gabriael Caballero and denying a 'true' Mexican a place in the team. He has had a long career starting as a product of the Cruz Azul youth system. He moved to Gallos Blancos and Monterrey before making his name at Necaxa for whom he signed in 1994. He won two Mexican Championships in 1994-1995 and 1995-1996 and his performances earned him an international debut in February 1995 against Uruguay. He left Necaxa for a short time to play in Argentina for Boca Juniors before leaving in 1998 for the Tigres. He left in 2000 and now splits his seasons between the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS in the summer and domestic team Americas in the winter. On the international front he played in two Copa Americas (1997 and 1999) and scored four goals in the 1998 World Cup Finals.
