Sosa started his career in Danubio at the age of 15, being one of the youngest footballers to play in the Uruguayan First Division. He played for Danubio from 1982 to 1985, when he was transferred to Spain's Real Zaragoza. With this club, Ruben Sosa won the Copa del Rey in 1986, scoring in the final against FC Barcelona.
After playing for Zaragoza, Ruben Sosa was transferred to Italy's S.S. Lazio, staying for four years before being sold to Internazionale, where he reached his greatest form as a football player. He was Inter's leading goal scorer in the 1992–93 and 1993–94 seasons, winning the UEFA Cup in 1994. However, the arrival of Dennis Bergkamp in the Summer of 1993, led to splits within the Inter camp, and as a result Sosa left Serie A in the summer of 1995.
When he left Borussia Dortmund, he returned to Spain to play for CD Logroñés. After a couple of months playing for the team, Ruben Sosa decided to leave in order to make his dream come true: he wanted to play for his favourite team in Uruguay, famous Nacional. At Nacional, Sosa won the Uruguayan League in 1998, 2000 and 2001, becoming one of the fans' heroes.
In 2004, he returned to Nacional, this time as assistant coach, winning the 2005 league title.
Sosa was known for his spectacular efforts and thunderous free kicks. He was a complete forward who could shoot, volley, dribble, create, and pass with precision, attributes which made him one of the best strikers in Europe. He is considered by many to be one of the best Uruguayan forwards of the last thirty years, alongside Luis Suárez, Enzo Francescoli, Carlos Aguilera, Álvaro Recoba, Daniel Fonseca, Diego Forlán, Fabian O'Neill and Rubén Paz.
