1 Senior club appearances and goals
Sánchez started playing professionally for Valencia CF. His first top flight match was on October 25, 1992, in a 0-3 loss at FC Barcelona. In the season's closing stages, he scored his first goal(s) for the Che, in a 2–0 home win over RCD Espanyol, as a late substitute.
After a successful loan stint in the second level with RCD Mallorca, Sánchez left for Real Club Celta de Vigo, becoming an important offensive element in the Galicians' domestic and European consolidation. In his last two seasons, as Celta finished respectively 6th and 5th, he scored 22 goals combined, eventually returning to his first club.
During the second season of his second spell, Sánchez netted 12 league goals (notably back-to-back braces against CD Numancia (3–0) and UD Las Palmas (5–1)), adding a further two in the Champions League semifinal second leg against Leeds United (3–0 home win), subsequently being replaced in the final loss against FC Bayern Munich.
Subsequently, after having appeared in 25 matches in Valencia's 2001–02 league conquest, Sánchez's importance lessened dramatically in his final season (where he played in only ten matches for the champions, no complete ones). He retired after a second spell at Celta, which he helped achieve a return to the first division.
Afterwards, Sánchez became Valencia's sporting director, succeeding Miguel Ángel Ruiz, and leaving the post in August 2008. In June 2009, he moved to Excelsior Mouscron, in Belgium, in the same capacity, rejoining former Valencia teammates Amedeo Carboni and Miroslav Đukić (the latter being signed as head coach).
