Enrique Garcia Martinez, professionally known as Kike or Kike Garcia is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for SD Eibar as a striker. He began his career at the local club of Quintanar Rey in 2004. In 2007, at the age of 18, he joined Real Murcia's youth categories. He made his senior debut with the former's reserves in the 2007–08 season, in Tercera División. In the 2013-14 season, he joined second top scorer in the league with 23 goals and helped his team to the La Liga promotion play-offs. On 11 July 2014, he joined English Football League Championship side Middlesbrough, in a €3.5 million. But the signings of strikers David Nugent and Jordan Rhodes at Middlesbrough led to speculation about his future at the club, which creates extra pressure for him to be included in the starting line-up. On 2 February 2016, he signed for SD Eibar in La Liga, but due to late registration, he would be ineligible to play until the following season.

On an international level, in June 2009, he was called up to the Spain U20 team for that year's Mediterranean Games. He was also listed for the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup. But he is yet to make his senior national team debut.
