Macià spent two decades at Valencia CF as player, technical advisor, and as the personal assistant to the club's president, Juan Soler.

When he was Sporting Director at Valencia CF, Macià had a big part in bringing Brazilian midfielder Edu on a Bosman ruling transfer.

After losing his role as sporting director to Amedeo Carboni, Macià was offered another role on the club's board but he opted to seek a new challenge. "It's a professional decision," he said. "I think my job here has come to an end and I cannot give more than I have given." Benitez considered making a move for Maciá when the latter rejected a new contract offer from Valencia. Former Valencia coach Claudio Ranieri was also interested in tempting Maciá to join him, but Liverpool seem a more interesting option for Maciá.

During this period, the squad market value grew from 45.000.000€ to 180.000.000€.

Liverpool F.C.

Macià's appointment as Chief Scout was announced on 15 June 2006.

One of Macià's earliest contribution was the discovery of Lazaros Christodoulopoulos, who was offered a trial by Liverpool. Lazaros was discovered while playing for PAOK. Lazaros did not travel with the Salonika squad pre-season tour of France, but instead went to Melwood to attend the Liverpool trial.

Macià then worked in partnership with academy manager Frank McParland, who became joint-scout. In 2010, after Roy Hodgson's appointment as manager, rumours stated that Macià had significant control over Liverpool's transfers, which he denied.
