David García de la Cruz (Spanish pronunciation: [daˈβið ɣarˈsi.a]; born 16 January 1981) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Girona FC as a left defender.


Club career

Born in Manresa, Barcelona, Catalonia, García was a product of RCD Espanyol's youth system, and made his first team - and La Liga - debut on 8 January 2000 (a 0–0 home tie against Deportivo de La Coruña), becoming a regular fixture in 2001–02, also being named second team captain after Raúl Tamudo, the only player to have been on Espanyol's books for longer.

In early 2007, García renewed his link to the Catalans for a further two seasons, stating about the deal: "I want to finish my career here. I can't imagine myself wearing any other shirt."[1] During that campaign, however, he only appeared in 16 contests overall (nine in the league, adding seven in the club's UEFA Cup runner-up campaign).

In 2008–09, García played in just 14 league matches as he suffered some injuries, but was instrumental in the final stretch, appearing in seven complete matches out of the last ten (of which Espanyol won eight). On 12 June 2009, he extended his contract for two additional seasons,[2] appearing in 38 league games in the following two seasons combined.
