PAOK Saloniki

PAOK FC signed him in 1999 for a huge for his playing value price of 3.000.000 euros, after being approved by the great scouting eye of former PAOK scout and player, Stavros Sarafis. He was a failure as a transfer, and was then transferred for the same amount of money at Sunderland A.F.C. of England.

Sunderland

Núñez is now somewhat a cult hero for Sunderland, due to his small size and only one appearance. It is believed that Peter Reid, who was the manager when Núñez was brought to the Stadium of Light, thought that he had signed Núñez's strike partner at PAOK (Adolfo Valencia) and not Núñez himself which led to a brief stay only in England before returning to Nacional, after playing just one game for Sunderland.

Guatemalan league

In 2009 Núñez crossed the border to play for Guatemalan side CD Jalapa and then joined USAC for the 2010 Clausura championship along with Selvin Motta and former national team goalkeeper Paulo César Motta.[2]
