A player with a prolific scoring rate whom never won the Pichichi Trophy he represented, amongst others, both Barcelona major teams during his career. He amassed La Liga totals of 265 games and 108 goals over the course of 11 seasons and won five major titles, all with FC Barcelona.
Born in Benicarló, Castellón, Valencian Community, Alonso made his professional debuts with local CD Castellón, in the second division, in 1975. Three years later he moved to Real Zaragoza, playing 33 La Liga matches in every season he remained there and never netting less than 15 goals; in his debut year, he scored five in a 8–1 routing of RCD Español.
For the 1982–83 campaign Alonso moved to FC Barcelona, being relatively used in his first season but losing his importance after the purchase of Scotland's Steve Archibald, and never regaining it again. Still, he scored three goals against IFK Göteborg in the 1986 European Cup semifinals, allowing the Catalans to reach the final of the competition against FC Steaua Bucureşti in Seville, where he came on as a substitute in extra time, in an eventual penalty shootout loss; he was one of four players that had his attempt saved by opposing goalkeeper Helmuth Duckadam.
Alonso regained his scoring prowess at Barça neighbours Espanyol, helping the side finish third in his first season with 17 goals. In the 1987–88 campaign another penalty shootout loss befell, now in the UEFA Cup against Bayer 04 Leverkusen. He retired the following year at the age of 36, having gained three caps for the Spanish football team – his debut came on 21 December 1978 in a 0–1 friendly loss with Italy, in Rome.
Alonso started his manager career as assistant to former Barcelona teammate Víctor Muñoz, at RCD Mallorca. He then coached the autonomous team of Catalonia, for several years, while also working as a television pundit for Televisió de Catalunya.
