Born in Torrelavega, Cantabria, Pachín signed for Real Madrid in 1959 from Segunda División club CA Osasuna. He made his La Liga debut on 11 September 1960 in a 0–1 away loss against Atlético Madrid, then proceeded to be a starter in that and the following four seasons.
Pachín left the Merengues in May 1968, having appeared in 218 competitive games and scored two goals. He won 11 major titles during his spell, including seven national championships and the 1960 and 1966 editions of the European Cup, contributing to the latter conquests with eight combined appearances and a total of 32 during his career.
Aged nearly 30, Pachín returned to the second level for the 1968–69 campaign, where he represented Real Betis. He retired in 1971 after a stint with amateurs Club Deportivo Toluca, then worked as a manager for 16 years, never in higher than the second tier – his biggest achievement was to promote Hércules CF to the top flight in 1984, even though he only contributed with six matches to that feat.
Pachín won eight caps for the Spain national team, during three years. His first came on 15 May 1960 in a 3–0 friendly win over England, and he was selected for the squad that competed at the 1962 FIFA World Cup, appearing against Mexico and Brazil in an eventual group stage exit.
