Club career

After making his professional debuts with Gil Vicente F.C. in the second division, Secretário, who was born in São João da Madeira and started his career as a midfielder, moved to the Primeira Liga with F.C. Penafiel in 1989, then spent one additional season with fellow league club F.C. Famalicão. In 1992–93 he signed with S.C. Braga, where he spent another campaign.

In the 1993 summer Secretário joined league club FC Porto, quickly establishing himself as an undisputed starter, in defense or midfield – after João Domingos Pinto's retirement, he played almost exclusively as a right back – and helping the northerners to two leagues, one Cup and one Supercup in his first spell. He attracted attention from Real Madrid, which signed the player in July 1996, but he would encounter extreme difficulties in carving a starting niche with the Spanish team, which was aggravated with the January 1997 signing of Italian Christian Panucci; in a bizarre incident in a game against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, a delay was caused by a rabbit presumably thrown into the fray from the terraces, and he was quick enough to catch it. "Secretário may or may be not a good player," said TV commentator Arsenio Iglesias at the time, "but he is indeed a great hunter."

Secretário returned to Porto in January 1998 for six 1/2 additional seasons, and would go on to conquer the UEFA Cup and the UEFA Champions League in back-to-back years, although he was now only backup to emergent Paulo Ferreira. On 14 March 2002 he was sent off during a 2–1 continental home win over Panathinaikos FC, receiving a three-match suspension.

In June 2005, Secretário retired after one year with F.C. Maia (second level). Two years later he started his coaching career with the same side, but it was now in the fourth. He continued working in the lower leagues in the following seasons.

International career


Secretário earned 35 caps for Portugal, and played at the 1996 and 2000 European Championships. In both cases second-choice, he totalled three appearances.
