Club career

After starting out professionally with RCD Español, Urbano moved in 1982 to neighbours; with the latter, he only started in two of his nine seasons, being sparingly used as a backup (only 41 matches combined in the remaining campaigns).

Subsequently, Urbano returned to (now called) Espanyol for two more seasons, with relegation in the latter. He closed out his career in 1996, playing with lowly UE Lleida (one season) and CP Mérida (two).

Urbano began coaching in 2003, assisting former Barça teammate Esteban Vigo at numerous clubs, including Romania's FC Dinamo Bucureşti. His first head coach experience arrived in 2007–08 in Segunda División B, with CD Baza; he resigned as the side dropped down a level.

After working as a scout for Barcelona and Villarreal CF, Urbano returned to another former side, Espanyol, in July 2009, as a club delegate.

International career

Urbano never gained a senior cap for Spain, but was a regular for its U21s, also competing at the 1980 Summer Olympics.
