João Filipe Couto Patrão (born 22 January 1990) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for G.D. Chaves as a midfielder.
Born in Esposende, Braga District, Patrão joined Leixões SC's youth academy in 2006 at the age of 16. He made his senior debuts with amateurs Leça F.C. but quickly returned to his previous club, his first appearance as a professional occurring on 15 May 2011 when he came on as a late substitute in a 3–1 home win against S.C. Freamunde for the Segunda Liga championship, in his only appearance of the season.
Subsequently, Patrão continued to compete in the second division, first with S.C. Braga B then G.D. Chaves. He helped the latter return to the Primeira Liga in 2016 after a lengthy absence, contributing with 34 games and one goal to the feat.
