Born in Montevideo, Ferro started and finished his career with local and national giants C.A. Peñarol, winning five of his sixth national championships with the team in his first spell, which lasted 11 years. In 1995, he moved to Argentina and Ferro Carril Oeste, playing three seasons in the Primera División.
In the following years, in quick succession, Ferro represented Peru's Sporting Cristal, SD Compostela from Spain, Atlético Tucumán (Argentine second division), Defensor Sporting Club and Paraguayan side Club Guaraní. In 2002 the 35-year-old returned to his first club Peñarol, being part of the squad that won that year's league and retiring at the end of the next campaign.
Subsequently, Ferro continued to work with Peñarol as a goalkeeping coach.
Ferro gained nine caps for Uruguay in seven years. He was selected for the teams that competed at the 1993 and 1995 Copa América tournaments– the latter ended in conquest for the Charrúas – but played backup on both occasions, to Robert Siboldi and Fernando Álvez respectively.
