Born in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Veloso played professionally with Deportivo de La Coruña, Real Madrid, CD Ourense and Rayo Vallecano. With the second club he was used almost exclusively as a reserve, but still managed to score nine goals in only 16 games in the 1966–67 season to win the first of his three La Liga championships with the team; additionally, he netted three times in just five matches in the European Cup, being part of the squad that won the 1966 edition.
Veloso returned in 1973 at the age of 36, after one year with local SD Compostela in the lower leagues.
Veloso earned four caps for Spain in seven months. Two of his three goals came in the qualifying phase for the 1964 European Nations' Cup, which the country eventually won as hosts – he was overlooked for the finals, however.
