Alberto was born in Benamejí, Córdoba. A product of Málaga CF's youth system he made his professional debuts for the first team in the last match of the 2002–03 season, a 0–1 La Liga away loss against RCD Mallorca, while also helping the B-side achieve a 2003 promotion to Segunda División.

For the 2005–06 campaign, Alberto signed with Madrid's Getafe CF, amassing 30 top flight appearances in his first two years combined and also playing an important part in the team's runner-up run in the Copa del Rey. However, the arrival of coach Michael Laudrup deemed him surplus to requirements in his third, which prompted a release in January 2008 with a move to second level club Granada 74 CF.
