Born in Zaragoza, Villarroya made his professional debut with hometown's Real Zaragoza, appearing in one La Liga game in the 1984–85 season (a 0–4 away loss against FC Barcelona) but being almost exclusively connected with the reserves for three years.
In the summer of 1990, after helping the Aragonese to two consecutive top-ten finishes in the top division – fifth in 1988–89, with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Cup – whilst only missing two matches combined, he signed with Real Madrid, being occasionally utilised as left back during his four-year spell and being the capital side's first-choice prior to the signing of Brazilian Roberto Carlos, battling for the position with Mikel Lasa.
After only 13 league appearances in his last two campaigns with the Merengues combined, following the arrival of manager Benito Floro, Villarroya signed for Deportivo de La Coruña, being relatively used and adding two trophies to his cabinet (one Copa del Rey and one Supercopa de España). Still in the top level, he then represented Sporting de Gijón, suffering relegation in his second season.
Villarroya earned 14 caps for the Spanish national team during slightly more than two years, and was in the squad for the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, playing in all the games – mostly in the back sector – in an eventual round-of-16 exit.
