Contents

Club career

A versatile midfielder, Farinós made his professional debuts, as a 18-year old, with hometown's Valencia CF. He was an undisputed starter from 1997–2000, helping the Che to the 1999 Spanish Cup and scoring five first division goals in his final season. To finish his Valencia career, he appeared in the 2000 Champions League final 0–3 loss to Real Madrid.

In the summer 2000, Farinós caught the attention of Serie A's F.C. Internazionale Milano, where he would spend four years (with a Villarreal CF loan in between) without much success, although he managed to score in a 6–0 home routing of Reggina Calcio, on November 22, 2003.[1] In 2004–05 he returned to Spain, joining RCD Mallorca, initially on loan,[2] and being relatively used during two topflight seasons.

In 2006–07, Farinós joined Spanish second division side Hércules CF; when healthy he was an undisputed starter, scoring 15 times in the league alone in his first three seasons combined.

International career

Courtesy of his Valencia performances, Farinós earned his first international cap on August 18, 1999, in a 2–1 friendly win against Poland, in Warsaw, being replaced by then teammate Gaizka Mendieta at halftime. He added a second a year later, against Netherlands, also in a friendly.

Previously, Farinós competed in the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship.
