• Returned to Valencia for 2009/10 and made his debut in a 4-2 win at Real Valladolid CF, scored his first Liga goal during a 3-2 defeat by RCD Mallorca and ended the campaign with 15 appearances, most of them as a left-back.

• Made his European bow in a UEFA Europa League group game against LOSC Lille Métropole in September 2009 and started each of the last two UEFA Champions League group games − at home to Bursaspor, away to Manchester United FC − in 2010/11.
