Miguel Becerra debuted with Chivas de Guadalajara taking over the absence of Oswaldo Sánchez who went with the World cup Squad who played in Korea/Japan 2002. He was transfer to Dorados de Sinaloa and played seven games there until leaving for Querétaro F.C. in which he was the starting goalkeeper for a period of time. He left Querétaro when the team was relegated back to Primera Division A, and transferred to Santos Laguna and was reunited with an old goalkeeping friend Oswaldo Sánchez. When things seemed like if Becerra would not play with Santos, Oswaldo was injured and Miguel played the rest of the tournament and played well, and gained the nickname of many Commentors "El Gordo". With Becerra Santos reached the Semifinals only to lose to Pumas UNAM by a small margin aggregate 5–4.
