* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only.
Born in Valencia, Grande graduated from Real Madrid's youth academy, going on to play in a total of 111 official games during his five-year spell with the first team, winning two La Liga championships and one Copa del Rey trophy. He made his league debut for the Merengues on 19 January 1969 in a 2–2 away draw against Córdoba CF (90 minutes played), but only amassed fourteen appearances in his first two seasons combined.
Additionally, Grande also represented Rayo Vallecano, Racing de Santander, Granada CF and Palencia CF, the first and the last being the only clubs with which he did not play in the first division, where he amassed totals of 176 matches and 31 goals, having retired professionally at only 31.
In 1979 Grande returned to Real Madrid, managing several youth teams as well as Real Madrid Castilla and Real Madrid C. In late 90's/early 2000s he worked as first-team assistant under several coaches, mainly Vicente del Bosque, then left the club briefly and returned again, being part of Fabio Capello's coaching staff as the side won the 1997 national championship.
In 2004, Grande re-joined del Bosque during his brief adventure in Turkey with Beşiktaş JK. The pair reunited again four years later, in the same capacity, in the Spanish national team.
