He played 12 seasons in La Liga, with Sporting de Gijón (two years) and Tenerife (ten), amassing totals of 348 games and 42 goals and going on to work with several teams as a manager since 2000, including the latter.
A product of Sporting de Gijón's famed youth system, Mareo, Miñambres was born in Astorga, Province of León, and made his debuts with the first team during the 1987–88 season, being an undisputed starter in the following campaign where he scored a career-best nine goals in La Liga.
For 1989–90 Miñambres switched to CD Tenerife, going on to be active part of the club's top flight consolidation and consequent UEFA Cup participations. As the Canary Islands side was relegated in 1999 he retired from football at the age of 34, and went into management.
Miñambres started coaching former team Tenerife (being one of four managers during the 1999–2000 season in Segunda División) then continued with Hércules CF, UD Salamanca, Alicante CF and UE Lleida. In 2007–08, he became Rayo Vallecano's director of football.
On 15 February 2010, with the Madrid club now in the second level but immerse in a sporting crisis, Miñambres replaced sacked Pepe Mel as coach. In June, after helping the team retain its division status, he returned to the office.
Between 1989 and 1994, Miñambres won six caps for Spain and scored two goals. His debut came on 13 December 1989 in a 2–1 friendly win over Switzerland, and he netted the winner in the 59th minute of a match played in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
