Born in Madrid, Prieto played mainly for hometown's Atlético Madrid during his professional career. After spending one season with the reserves in Segunda División and another on loan to CD Castellón, in La Liga (with relegation), he returned to the Colchoneros, being a starter for much of his five-year spell.
In the 1982–83 campaign, Prieto had his best season at Atlético, with seven goals in 32 games in an eventual third-place finish. After helping the club to two major titles he was part of the team that reached the final of the 1986 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, appearing in the decisive match against FC Dynamo Kyiv (0–3 loss).
Prieto signed for Celta de Vigo in the 1987 summer, playing (104 of his 107 appearances were starts) and scoring regularly for the Galicians but suffering top flight relegation in his third and final year. He returned to Atlético Madrid for 1990–91, but was only a fringe player in his third spell.
