Club career

After first appearing professionally with hometown UD Las Palmas, playing 64 La Liga contests from 2000–2002 (32 in each season), Ángel made a name for himself as a stamina-filled Defender (association football) Wingback at fellow first-divisioner Celta de Vigo, joining the Galicia (Spain) outfit in the 2003 January transfer window. Ángel David appeared in 15 league during the second part of 2002–03 La Liga, as Celta achieved a 2003–04 UEFA Champions League.

On the last day of 2007–08 La Liga's summer transfer deadline, Ángel joined Villarreal CF.

After Venta's departure to Levante UD, Ángel was the undisputed first-choice right-back for Villarreal.
