Sánchez has played professionally with Juventud Independiente, Arcense, San Salvador, Chalatenango and Alianza in the first division in El Salvador.

Sánchez joined the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer in 2009,[1] and scored two goals in 10 appearances with the team in his debut year. He was later released from the team on June 29, 2010.[2]

In late July 2010, Sánchez signed a one-year contract with Águila, after having spent some time with the San Jose Earthquakes of the Major League Soccer.[3] After his contract expired with Aguila, he made a move to Isidro Metapán for the Apertura 2011.

In February 2013 Sánchez signed with Kazakh team FC Vostok to play in the Kazakhstan Premier League.

Following his Life Ban,[4] Sánchez signed for Iraqi Premier League side Zakho FC, since the Iraqi Premier League is not being recognised by FIFA.[5] Subsequently, fellow banned teammates José Henríquez and Cristian Castillo joined Dohuk SC, who also play in the Iraqi Premier League.


In 2002 Sánchez won the gold medal with the Salvadoran under-22 team in the Juegos Deportivos Centroamericanos, beating Mexico in the final.
