After leaving Real Madrid, the defender turned out for several Spanish clubs like Cordoba, Alcorcon, Albacete Balompie and RCD Mallorca. He also had a year-long stint with Turkish club Orduspor from 2012 to 2013.
In 2016, Iniguez signed for Major League Soccer (MLS) club Houston Dynamo. Next year, he moved to Denmark to sign for Esbjerg. Cyprus -based outfit Nea Salamina Famagusta were the last club the Spaniard represented before heading to India. In total, he played 15 matches for them, with his last appearance coming against AEK Larnaca in early May.
