Nuno Miguel Pereira Sousa (born 8 March 1979), known as Briguel, is a retired Portuguese professional footballer who played as a right back.

Football career

Born in Funchal, Madeira, Briguel – his nickname derives from former German international defender Hans-Peter Briegel, who also played in his position – spent his entire career in the green and red colours of hometown's C.S. Marítimo. He made his first-team and Primeira Liga debut to kickstart the 2000–01 season, against F.C. Alverca (0–0 away draw, 90 minutes played).

Briguel also played five times for the Portugal under-21 side, though never an undisputed starter at Marítimo (years after being promoted to the first team, he continued appearing in the odd match for the reserves). He retired at the end of the 2015–16 campaign at the age of 37, after having contributed with ten games to a 13th-place finish; on 17 December 2014, he reached the 700th-game mark with his only club.
