He wore the Emelec jersey a few times in his career and this time did not score out of many chances. He only had 9 appearances for Emelec but was an important time for his career. He was transferred to Barcelona in 2006.


During Corozo's stint with Ecuador's most popular club he was not paid attention to and so he had only one appearance. Although that one appearance with the canaries was thought as a good start, he was sold out to arch rivals Emelec yet again.


After Franklin joined Azogues, he had an important role for them. For the first time of his career Franklin was a starter and was used quite often. With only 42 appearances and good defending he attracted many and was a key player for Azogues. Due to this Franklin soon joined Deportivo Quito on January 1, 2008.

Deportivo Quito

He is an important key player for Deportivo Quito. He instantly became a starter and played many important games.

Although his team played an excellent game in Mexico, they lost in the aggregate 4-5. He succeeded in winning the Ecuadorian league of 2008.
