De Murga was signed in by Ceres F.C. under a 3-year contract in February 2014. By the time of the signing de Murga was a free agent having previously played for Global. The footballer came from a anterior cruciate ligament on his right knee preventing him from playing football for five months. He debuted for Ceres at the 2014 United Football League Division 2 match against Manila Jeepney F.C.. De Murga was used a substitute coming in for Angelo Marasigan in the 69th minute. Ceres won with the scoreline of 2–1.

De Murga helped Ceres win the 2014 UFL FA League Cup by defeating Global F.C. in the final played in November 6, 2014 with a scoreline of 2–1. However, Ceres was forced to make a substitution after de Murga sustained an injury on his left knee after colliding with a Global defender. The injury was later determined to be an ACL tear forcing de Murga out once again from competitive football for about a year and two months..

A surgery to treat his injury was unsuccessful and at one point during his recovery, de Murga's doctor hinted him that he should retire from football. De Murga refused to heed the advise and a second surgery proved to be successful.

In early 2016, de Murga was fielded in a friendly in Singapore. In February 7, 2016, he was later played against Loyola Meralco Sparks F.C. in Ceres' first 2016 UFL Cup match and scored a brace, marking his return in the UFL. Loyola scored the only other goal in the match that ended in a 2–1 win for Ceres.

He remained with Ceres, when it joined the Philippines Football League in 2017.

International career

Martínez de Murga discovered the Philippines team through a friend who was a Spanish league teammate of Philippines international Ángel Guirado. Through the social networking website Facebook, he was able to contact Guirado, together with his relatives, and was able to secure his requirements for him to suit up for the national team.

In September 2011, he joined the national team training pool and was named in the final 20-man squad for the 2011 Long Teng Cup and the provisional Philippines under-23 squad for the 2011 Southeast Asian Games. In the Long Teng Cup, he made his full international debut in the 3–3 draw against Hong Kong.

He made his first appearance for the under-23 national team in the 3–1 loss against Vietnam in the opening match of the 2011 Southeast Asian Games.

On March 16, 2012 in a semi-final match against Turkmenistan for the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup, he became a goalkeeper for the remainder of the second half injury time after Neil Etheridge was sent off from the field having received a straight red card.

On June 12, 2012, he scored his first international goal for the Philippines in a 3–0 win against Guam. He scored once again against Macau on September 27, 2012 in a 5–0 victory in the 2012 Philippine Peace Cup.
