Portugal was born in Quintanilla de las Viñas, Province of Burgos. During his career he played for Burgos CF, CD Mirandés, Real Madrid, Cádiz CF, Rayo Vallecano, CD Castellón, Real Burgos CF, Real Valladolid and Córdoba CF.
Portugal started managing in the mid-90's, returning to Real Madrid to be in charge of its C and B-sides. In 1999 he started in the second division with CD Toledo, but was fired after only a couple of months.
After some years out of football Portugal coached former club Córdoba, also in level two, returning to Real Madrid Castilla in 2005–06 following the December promotion to the first team of Juan Ramón López Caro. On 6 July 2006 he succeeded López Caro once again, now at Racing de Santander, helping the Cantabrians to a final tenth place in the top flight.
Portugal served as technical director of Real Madrid subsequently. In November 2008 he was set to take over at the club as coach following the sacking of Bernd Schuster, but club president Ramón Calderón preferred Juande Ramos instead.
On 19 November 2009, Portugal returned to Racing on a two-year deal following the dismissal of Juan Carlos Mandiá, as the side had only collected one point in five home matches. In early February 2011, even though the club was placed above the relegation zone in the top division – eventually managing to stay afloat – he was sacked by the team's new owner, Indian Ahsan Ali Syed.
