In Madrid he stayed for four seasons. Once his time with the Fuenlabreños was over, he spent ten months recovering from a back problem, reappearing in Básquet Coruña in the 2019/20 season.

Valuation Arturo Álvarez, coach Melilla Sport Capital
“He is a player with a lot of experience in the league, even in ACB. He is a totally contrasted player and in recent seasons he has not been able to show his full level due to minor injuries ”.
“He comes to vindicate himself and is one more who believes in our project. He strengthens our perimeter a lot, especially due to the lack of Mukama, and I am convinced that he will be a player who contributes us a lot, not only with points but also leadership. It is a very important addition for us ”.
