Football career

The son of a Portuguese couple, Silva was born in Le Creusot, Saône-et-Loire. He returned to his parents' hometown of Chaves in his teens, making his debuts in professional football at the age of 20 with G.D. Chaves in the second division and remaining four years with the club in that level.

In the 2005–06 season, Silva made his Primeira Liga debuts, only missing two games as C.F. Estrela da Amadora easily retained its league status. In January 2007 he moved abroad, signing with CFR Cluj in Romania.

During his spell at Cluj, Silva quickly became a fan favourite for his strong work ethic and dedication, also eventually gaining team captaincy. During his stint he won six major titles, including two Liga I championships, contributing with 50 games and one goal combined in those conquests (32 matches in 2007–08); in the following campaign, he suffered a knee ligament injury which sidelined him for several weeks, but he still recovered in time to help the team win the domestic cup for the second time in their history.

In January 2011, aged 30, Silva returned to his country and signed with Vitória de Guimarães. In the following year, in the same transfer window, he joined fellow league side F.C. Paços de Ferreira.

On 5 May 2013, Tony scored his first goal in the Portuguese top flight, netting through a rare header to help his team defeat Sporting Clube de Portugal 1–0 at home and cling on to a best-ever third position in the league, with the subsequent qualification to the UEFA Champions League.
