During 18 seasons as a professional, Nunes played mainly for Vitória de Setúbal (seven seasons in two separate spells). In the 1984 summer, after the first stint at the Sado River side, he signed for top division giants S.L. Benfica, being a relatively important member of the teams that won the 1987 national championship – with the player contributing with 24 games and a career-best eight goals, including a brace in a 2–0 away win against S.C. Farense on 1 February 1987 – and three consecutive domestic cups.
In 1990, after two years with C.S. Marítimo, 30-year-old Nunes returned to Setúbal, suffering relegation in his first year but helping Vitória return to the top flight in his third, already as a fringe player however. He closed out his career at nearly 37 after two years with C.D. Beja (second level), where he reunited with former Setúbal teammate Hernâni Neves; over the course of 11 seasons, he amassed top division totals of 196 matches and 18 goals.
Nunes gained 18 caps for Portugal, scoring twice. Most of his appearances came following the 1986 FIFA World Cup, as most of the internationals defected the national team after the infamous Saltillo Affair in Mexico.
