Born in Madrid, Mateos finished his graduation at local and national powerhouse Real Madrid. He was mainly a reserve player during his eight-year spell with the first team, which won 13 major titles during that timeframe; his best output came during the 1956–57 season, when he scored a career-best 14 goals in 21 games en route to the La Liga championship; additionally, he netted nine times in 16 appearances combined in the European Cup, winning the tournament on four occasions.
Mateos left the Merengues in the 1961 summer, with official totals of 93 matches and 50 goals. He subsequently represented, in his country, Sevilla FC, Recreativo de Huelva, Real Betis (two spells with both clubs) and Gimnástica de Torrelavega, suffering a serious injury whilst at the service of the first from which he never fully recovered; until his retirement at the age of 37, he also played for the Cleveland Stokers in the North American Soccer League and East London Celtic in South Africa.
