Andrinúa was born in Bilbao, Biscay. During his career he played solely for Athletic Bilbao safe for a loan at Real Valladolid, and he made his debut for the former's first team in the 1983–84 season, appearing once for the La Liga champions.
Eventually, Andrinúa gained the captain's armband from the legendary Andoni Goikoetxea, also a centre-back, and proceeded to appear in nearly 400 overall games for the Basque club, also scoring at least once in all the seasons but one. After two weak last years he retired in June 1997 at the age of 33, with the side now captained by youngster Julen Guerrero.
Andrinúa earned 28 caps and scored twice for the Spain national team. His debut came in a friendly match with England on 18 February 1987 after replacing José Antonio Camacho in a 2–4 home loss (all four opponent goals by Gary Lineker), and he went on to appear at the UEFA Euro 1988 and the 1990 FIFA World Cup, retiring internationally after the latter.
