"I initiated my career in Sporting CP at 2011/2012, shortly after finishing my Masters Degree in Porto's University Faculty of Sports.
Followed by FC Porto Dragon Force, Figo Academy (China), GPS (USA/Canadá) and, at 2016/2017, my first experience in professional football at Zamalek SC (Egypt) as assistant of Augusto Inácio.
In 2019/20, I coached at Académica Coimbra, as U 15 Head Coach. Last season (2020/21), after having been assistant coach at Episkopis FC (Greece), I accompanied, at March, Manuel Machado in the latter's return to Nacional da Madeira, acting as Assistant Coach. This season, I am working at União Desportiva de Leiria, as Assistant Coach (First Team).
In my training, in parallel with my activity as a player (see cv), I graduated first in Physical Education, followed by a Master in High Performance FC Barcelona and a Master in High Sports Performance at FADEUP. In these cycles, I came close to the philosophies and operational realities of FC Porto and FC Barcelona, under the ideological mentorship of two great names Vítor Frade and Paco Seirul.lo, respectively, paradigms which firstly influenced and inspired me in the way I´ve been seeing and understanding the art of training, and the game itself.
With the horizon on professional football and a solid career of constant evolution, recently, I went to meet several top professional coaches – Manuel Cajuda, Vítor Oliveira, Luís Castro, Mauricio Pellegrino, Marco Rose - among others - which enabled me to understand more deeply the reality of top coaching in professional football.
To win is my aim, with a career in constant evolution. I want to make improving the teams and the players I work with. I want to win and make others win. That´s my mission in Football."
