Club careerEdit

Born in Beja, Alentejo, Quim spent his entire professional career with Vitória FC, appearing in 301 Primeira Liga games for the club during exactly ten seasons.[1] He made his debut in the competition on 23 August 1987, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–0 home win against Académica de Coimbra.

Quim retired at the end of the 2000–01 campaign at the age of 34, after contributing with 13 appearances to help the Sado River side return to the top division after a third-place finish. Early into 2009–10 he acted as their caretaker manager, winning one match and losing two.[2]
