Born in Madrid, González was brought up in the Real Madrid youth system, and would subsequently represent Spain at various youth levels. However, after years only playing with the club's reserves, he was loaned in January 1986 to fellow La Liga side CA Osasuna; he only appeared in five matches during his first season in Navarre, but was instrumental in helping the team avoid relegation in the last round, at the expense of Valencia CF.
From his third full campaign onwards, González became an undisputed starter for Osasuna: alongside namesake Martín Domínguez, he helped the squad finish fourth in 1990–91 – playing in all but one of the matches – with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Cup.
After a final season with Osasuna, filled with injuries and spent in the second division, González returned to the capital in the 1995 summer with lowly Rayo Vallecano, for a further two top flight years, being relegated in his second. He retired in June 1997, at age 33.
The year after retiring, González returned to Osasuna as an assistant coach and director of football (accumulating in some seasons). He was briefly fired in October 2003 but later returned, now in only the latter capacity; he occupied that position for several years.
