Born in Gijón, Asturias, Manjarín began playing professionally for local Sporting de Gijón, first appearing with his hometown squad during the 1989–90 campaign (29 games and four goals). Subsequently, he imposed as a La Liga player with Deportivo de La Coruña, being a key attacking element in two runner-up and one third league places while scoring 19 times in his first four years combined.
Subsequent loss of form and injuries prompted a 1999–2000 move to Racing de Santander, where Manjarín somehow resurfaced. After two years, he moved to Mexico and competed in the Liga MX with Atlético Celaya FC; for the following season he remained in Mexico, playing for Club Santos Laguna.
Manjarín retired in 2005 at the age of 35, after one season in the Spanish regional leagues with Atlético Arteixo. In the country's top level alone, he totalled 329 matches and 38 goals through 13 seasons.
Manjarín gained 13 caps for Spain during two years, netting twice and participating at UEFA Euro 1996. His debut came on 6 September 1995, as the national side crushed Cyprus 6–0 in Granada for the continental competition qualifiers.
