He debuted with Cruz Azul in the 1974-75 season, and helped the team win the 1978–79 and 1979-80 league titles.
In his professional day view he played as a central defender substituting Alberto Quintano, later on Raúl Cardenás placed him as a central defensive midfielder where he played the rest of his career.
While playing for Cruz Azul, Atlético Madrid board of directors got interested in Mendizábal, but couldn’t buy his transfer because Cruz Azul owned the players card. In his place Hugo Sánchez was enrolled with the colchonero side.
After Cruz Azul, he played for Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara, from 1983 to 1985. Later on he played a full season with Rayo Vallecano of Spain, before returning to Mexico to play for Club Deportivo Guadalajara, where he won the 1986-87 league title. In that final Guadalajara and Cruz Azul faced each in other in the final with anecdotal emphasis because while Guillermo Mendizabal was playing for Chivas, his brother Marco Antonio was playing for the celestes. In that year whichever team was going to win the title they were going to have Mendizabal in the champion’s team.
Guillermo retired at the age of 37 in 1991.
