Marvin Gabriel Cabrera Ibarra is a professional football player who hails from Mexico. Ibarra, who specializes as a defender, began his club career in 2000 with Mexican bigwigs Cruz Azul. Ibarra stayed at the club from 2000 to 2005 and in his six seasons, spent most of the time struggling to get into the first team squad. Towards the end of his tenure, Ibarra did go on to become a more regular feature in games and ended the tenure with 76 games and 6 goals to his name.
Ibarra moved to C.F. Pachuca in 2005 and the move proved to be the best thing at the time as C.F. Pachuca ran into a period of dominance starting with the Mexican Primera Division Clausura title in 2006 and the Copa Nissan Sudamericana title in the same year.
The following year, Ibarra played a crucial part in his team’s fortunes as they won the 2007 Clausura title as well as the CONCACAF Champions’ Cup and the North American SuperLiga, all in the same year. In 2008, Ibarra retained the CONCACAF Champions’ Cup with another stellar performance at the back, playing 93 games during his entire tenure while scoring once.
Along with teammate Fernando Salazar, Ibarra moved to Monarcas Morelia where he played regularly in the first team, playing 33 games in the season.
