A product of Athletic Bilbao's famous Lezama youth academy, Bellido spent the majority of his career at SD Compostela, where he earned the nickname 'The wall of San Lázaro'. Previously, he spent five seasons in the second division with Bilbao Athletic (two years), SD Eibar and Elche CF (two), and started his ten-year spell with the Galicians in the same level.
In the 1997–98 campaign, in spite of Compos' relegation from La Liga after four years, Bellido scored seven league goals, second-best in the squad. He retired in June 2001 at the age of 35, after the team's demotion to division three.
