He amassed Primeira Liga totals of 184 games and 31 goals over the course of seven seasons, representing in the competition Vitória de Guimarães, Gil Vicente and União de Leiria. He added 103/17 in the Segunda Liga, and also had spells in England with Millwall and Walsall.

Leixões / Vitória

Born in Leixões, Fangueiro joined Leixões SC's youth system at the age of 10. Still a junior, he made one appearance for the main squad in the second division, then proceeded to compete three full seasons with the club in the third level.

Fangueiro signed for Vitória S.C. in 1997, making his Primeira Liga debut on 21 September by playing 29 minutes in a 2–3 away loss against S.C. Braga. After two consecutive loan spells in division two, with F.C. Maia and Gil Vicente FC, he returned to help his team narrowly miss out on qualification for the UEFA Cup in the 2002–03 campaign after a fourth-placed finish, contributing with 28 games – 11 starts – and seven goals to this feat.


In the 2005 summer Fangueiro joined English side Millwall, but struggled to break into the starting line-up, making thirteen overall appearances for the Lions as they were relegated from the Championship. He scored his only goal for the club on 23 August in a 2–0 win over Bristol Rovers in the first round of the League Cup, being released at the end of the season.

Free agent Fangueiro moved to Walsall from League Two on 18 August 2006. The following day, he netted a last-minute equalizer at Lincoln City in a 2–2 draw; he signed with Ionikos F.C. on 7 December, linking up with former Vitória boss Augusto Inácio and being part of a squad that suffered relegation from the Superleague Greece after amassing just four points.

Later years

Fangueiro subsequently returned to his homeland and its second tier, going on to represent F.C. Vizela and S.C. Beira-Mar. He scored a career-best 11 times in his debut season with the latter, adding 16 appearances as captain in the second to help his team return to the top division.

In May 2010, aged 33, Fangueiro signed with V.League 1's Hanoi T&T F.C. on a four-month contract. He won the national championship during his short spell, then joined boyhood club Leixões before announcing his retirement on 25 January 2012 after twelve months at the Estádio do Mar.

Managerial career

On 11 May 2012, Fangueiro was appointed as manager of Luxembourg 1. Division team FC Atert Bissen on a two-year deal.
