Jose Andres Guardado Hernandez is a Mexico international footballer who currently features for the Spanish football club Valencia. He is a versatile player who can play as a winger, a left-back and even as a forward at times.
Guardado began his career at FC Atlas in August 2005 when he was just 18 years of age in a 3-2 win over Pachuca. He played for two seasons for Atlas and made 64 league appearances and scored 6 goals.
He was then transferred to Spanish side Deportivo la Coruna in the summer of 2007 for €7 million. He quickly settled into the first team at the Riazor in the 2007-2008 season and his long shots and great dribbling skills won him several admirers.
Guardado played for Depor until 2012 and in the five years he was with the Galician giants, he scored 23 goals in 137 league matches. His talent and consistency won over Valencia, who signed him in May 2012 on a four-year contract.
Guardado is considered as a very vital member of the Mexican national side. That is why he has won over 85 international caps since his debut in 2005. He played in the 2006 Germany World Cup and in Copa America 2007.
