Nicknamed Sandokan due to striking similarities with the fictional character, he was mainly associated with Cádiz, but also played three years for Real Madrid, appearing in 233 La Liga games in exactly ten seasons.
Born in Cádiz, Andalusia, Juan José started his professional career with hometown's Cádiz CF, in the second division. In 1982 he moved to La Liga giants Real Madrid, being relatively used during three seasons – in his last his only two pieces of silverware arrived, but he had already lost his starting job to youngster Chendo.
Juan José played four times for Spain, all coming in matches for the UEFA Euro 1984 qualifiers where the nation eventually finished runner-up, although he did not make the final cut. He was the first Cádiz player to ever be called by the national team.
