Born in Ciudad Rodrigo, Province of Salamanca, González started out at RCD Español, making his La Liga debut on 5 April 1978 in a 1–3 home loss against Atlético Madrid where he came on as a 64th-minute substitute. It was one of only three appearances during the campaign, which he finished on loan to neighbouring club CE Sabadell FC.
In the top flight, González also represented UD Salamanca and CD Logroñés, for a total of 151 games and ten goals during seven seasons. He added 267/48 in Segunda División, retiring in 1993 at the age of 34 after two years apiece with Palamós CF and UE Figueres, also in the Catalonia region.
González represented Spain at the 1980 Summer Olympics, where they competed under the Olympic flag due to the boycott. In his hometown, plaques commemorated any Olympian born in the city, but he appeared to have been forgotten as his name was not listed.
