Before, the closest he had come to holding a heavyweight championship was in the 2020 Concachampionsthough Tigres denied him the possibility with a 2-1 victory..
In the rest of his career it was difficult for him to compete for crowns during his time in Salamanca, Osasuna, Arsenal, West Bromwich and Real Sociedad, clubs far from gloryincluding the Gunners who in their stay from 2008 to 2010 were far from the leading role in the Premier.
