Rodri was born in Barcelona, Catalonia. After having already played his youth football at the club, Rodri signed for FC Barcelona in 1958, from neighbours CD Condal. He played 48 games in his first two seasons combined, which ended in La Liga conquest, but only appeared in nine matches in his last four.
Rodri made his debut in the top level with Condal, in a 0–6 away loss against Real Madrid on 9 September 1956, with the season ending in relegation. He left the Blaugrana in 1966 at the age of 32, retiring shortly after; during six seasons he acted as assistant manager in his main side, namely under Rinus Michels.
Rodri earned four caps for Spain in 1962, and was included in the squad for that year's FIFA World Cup. In the tournament in Chile he appeared in the 1–0 win against Mexico and the 1–2 loss against Brazil, in an eventual group stage exit.
