González was born in Montevideo. During his 15-year professional career, he represented Basañez, Club Nacional de Football, Centro Atlético Fénix, C.A. Cerro and River Plate de Montevideo in his homeland, also having abroad stints with Real Oviedo, Atlético Madrid – being loaned by the Asturias club in January 1999, he was highly unsuccessful – and Granada CF, all in Spain (the first two in La Liga).
In the 2004–05 season, González made a brief return to Oviedo, with the team then in the fourth division, wrapping up his career two years later with another former side, Fénix. In early 2008, González began a new career in his country as a bus driver.
