Born in Antequera, Málaga, Chuzo made his professional debuts with Atlético Madrid, first appearing in La Liga at the age of just 17. Even though he never played one full schedule during his six-year spell with the capital club, he started in all but one of the games he appeared in.
In the 1962–63 season, after having helped the Colchoneros to back-to-back Copa del Rey trophies and the 1962 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (he played in the first match of the final against ACF Fiorentina, in Glasgow) Chuzo scored an astonishing nine goals in only 14 matches, with Atlético finishing in second position in the league behind neighbouring Real Madrid.
After winning the European accolade, Chuzo signed for local CD Málaga, playing with the Andalusians during eight years, suffering top flight relegation twice and appearing rarely in his final years. Over the course of ten professional seasons he appeared in 146 games, netting 14 goals.
