Contents

He never played any higher than Segunda División B in his own country, where he made 90 appearances for three clubs. He played over 100 matches in the Indian Super League for ATK, Jamshedpur, ATK Mohun Bagan and Mumbai City, winning the title with the first team in 2016 and being at one point the most-capped foreign player in the history of the competition. [2]

Club career

Cádiz

Born in Los Barrios, Province of Cádiz, Tiri began his career at Cádiz CF. [3] He was mostly associated to the reserves during his spell and only collected two first-team appearances, the first occurring on 10 May 2009 at the age of 17 as he played the final 25 minutes of a 2–1 Segunda División B away win against CD Guadalajara. [4]

On 1 September 2010, Tiri played the full 90 minutes of a 3–1 home defeat of CE L'Hospitalet in the first round of the Copa del Rey, at the Estadio Ramón de Carranza. [5]

Atlético Madrid

Tiri transferred to Atlético Madrid in 2012, being assigned to their B side also in the third tier. He was first choice during his three-year spell, being relegated to Tercera División in his last season. [6]

ATK

On 18 June 2015, Tiri signed for Indian Super League defending champions ATK at the same time as compatriot Jaime Gavilán, joining Borja Fernández and Josemi in the club's Spanish contingent. [7] An unused substitute for their first two matches of the campaign, he made his debut on 7 October by playing the entirety of a 1–1 draw at FC Goa in place of Arnab Mondal, who was away playing internationally for India. [8]

Tiri totalled 1,170 minutes of action, in an eventual elimination in the semi-finals by Chennaiyin FC. [9]

Return to Atlético B

Tiri returned to Atlético Madrid and its B team on 1 February 2016. [10] However, before playing a game for them, on 16 March he agreed terms to go back to Kolkata for the next season. [11]

ATK return

Tiri played 11 matches in his second spell at the Salt Lake Stadium. One of those was in the ISL final, a penalty shootout victory over Kerala Blasters FC on 18 December 2016, thus winning his first league title. [12]

Marbella

On 24 January 2017, Tiri returned to Spain's third division, signing with Marbella FC in his native Andalusia. [13] In the second of his six appearances, he was sent off in a 2–1 home loss to Lorca FC. [14]

Jamshedpur

Tiri returned to the Indian top flight in July 2017, joining expansion team Jamshedpur FC. [15] He played every minute as they finished fifth, one place off the playoffs, and scored in a 3–2 home win against Delhi Dynamos FC on 21 January 2018. [16]

ATK Mohun Bagan

On 12 September 2020, Tiri moved to newly merged ATK Mohun Bagan FC. [17] He made his official debut on 20 November, in a 1–0 away defeat of Kerala Blasters. [18]

Tiri missed the vast majority of the 2022–23 campaign, due to injury. [19]

Mumbai City

On 6 July 2023, Tiri signed a one-year contract with Mumbai City FC as a free agent. [20] His debut for The Islanders came in Mumbai's 0-2 loss at home to F.C. Nassaji Mazandaran, where he played the full 90 minutes. [21] His ISL debut for the club came away against NorthEast United as a substitute in the 68th minute, replacing fellow new signing Yoell van Nieff, as Mumbai went on to win 1-2. [22] This was his first ISL appearance since the 21-22 season, following an injury he sustained due to a knee injury ruling him out for over a year. [23] He scored his first goal for Mumbai at home versus former club Jamshedpur FC with a header from a free-kick, the opening goal of the match. However, Mumbai eventually lost the match 2-3, thanks to a brace from Jeremy Manzorro and a goal by Imran Khan. [24]
