Club career

Born in Castellón de la Plana, Castellón, Valencian Community, Montañés started his career in the youth ranks of FC Barcelona. He made his debut for the first team on 13 May 2006, playing the last 20 minutes of a 2–3 away loss against Sevilla FC; he then moved to the lower leagues, with Villarreal CF B and Ontinyent CF. In August 2010, Montañés joined AD Alcorcón, promoted for the first time to the second division. He rarely missed a game during his two-year spell as the club always retained its league status, and scored nine goals in his second season. Montañés returned to La Liga with Real Zaragoza, signing a four-year contract on 5 July 2012. He made his official debut on 20 August, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–1 home loss against Real Valladolid. Montañés scored his first goal in the Spanish top flight on 10 November 2012, netting his team's second in a 5–3 home win over Deportivo de La Coruña. He started in all league matches during the campaign, as the Aragonese were relegated. On 28 July 2014, Montañés returned to the top level after agreeing to a four-year deal with RCD Espanyol. On 12 August 2016, he was loaned to Levante UD in a season-long deal. On 17 August 2017, free agent Montañés signed a two-year contract with division two side CD Tenerife.

Personal life

In 2010, before he made his debut in the top division and thinking this was not a possibility anymore, Montañés contemplated quitting football and becoming a fireman, as his father before him. Nothing came of it eventually.
