Blessed with both scoring and dribbling ability alike, he also displayed good defensive and tackling skills. His 15-year professional career was mainly associated with Porto (although he also represented Sporting), with which he won a total of 13 major titles, having appeared in 368 Primeira Liga games over 13 seasons, scoring 59 goals.
Capucho was born in Barcelos. After starting with hometown's Gil Vicente F.C. he moved to Sporting CP, where he would be relatively used during his three-year spell, helping the Lisbon team to the 1995 Portuguese Cup.
After two seasons with Guimarães' Vitória SC, Capucho joined FC Porto, being a major part of a side that won three Primeira Liga titles and the 2002-03 UEFA Cup, starting in the final against Celtic. His worst domestic output came precisely in that season, scoring four goals in 27 matches as the northerners won the treble.
Capucho would leave Porto prior to the conquest of the UEFA Champions League, having appeared in nearly 250 official games with the club. He retired in 2005 at the age of 32, after unassuming spells with Scotland's Rangers - in a campaign completely devoid of silverware- and RC Celta de Vigo of the Spanish Segunda División.
With 34 caps for Portugal, Capucho played more defensively for the nation than while at Porto, appearing at UEFA Euro 2000 (two late substitute appearances and a start against Germany, when Portugal was already qualified) and the 2002 FIFA World Cup (replacing Sérgio Conceição in the 4-0 thrashing of Poland). After Luiz Felipe Scolari took over as national team boss in early 2003, he was never called again.
Capucho returned to Porto in the summer of 2007, being charged with training its junior sides for several years. His first job at the professional level occurred in 2015-16, when he led newly promoted Varzim S.C. to the ninth place (from 24 teams) in the Segunda Liga; he subsequently moved to the top flight with neighbours Rio Ave FC, being fired on 10 November 2016 due to poor results.
On 8 April 2019, Capucho was appointed at C.D. Mafra who were eighth in the second division following a run of nine games without a win that cost the job of Filipe Pedro. He won one and drew two of their five remaining matches, then chose to part ways.
