Jorge Manuel Catarino Madureira (born 5 February 1976) is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a central midfielder.


Club career

Born in Matosinhos, Madureira joined FC Porto's youth system at the age of 10. In the 1993–94 season, he made his debut with the first team, starting in a 0–0 home draw against S.C. Beira-Mar on 2 June 1994, in what would be his only official appearance for the main squad.

Subsequently, Madureira played for Leça FC (Primeira Liga, only five games) and Gil Vicente FC (second division), spending the following two years with C.D. Aves in the second level. He returned to the top flight for the 1998–99 campaign, but only appeared once for Académica de Coimbra – a 0–5 home loss against F.C. Alverca – who also suffered relegation.

In the following years, Madureira represented AD Esposende, F.C. Penafiel and Vilanovense FC, then spent two seasons in division two with S.C. Salgueiros during which he appeared in only 16 league games combined. After one year with F.C. Pedras Rubras in the third tier, he returned to Leça for three additional campaigns, helping the club return to that category in his second year and retiring professionally in June 2008, at the age of 32.

International career

Madureira gained 15 caps for the Portuguese under-20 team, adding another appearance with the under-21s. With the former, he competed at the 1995 FIFA World Youth Championship, playing in all the matches for the eventual third-placed nation.
