Bruno Miguel Nunes Baltazar (born 6 July 1977), known as Bruno Baltazar, is a retired Portuguese footballer and manager, who is the current assistant manager of the Filipino national team.

Club career[edit]

Born in Lisbon, Baltazar started his career with local S.U. Sintrense (1996–99) after having already played youth football there. He then switched to Odivelas FC (1999–January 2003), representing both clubs in the third and fourth divisions and having his first adventure abroad with Dresdner SC in Germany's Regionalliga Nord (2003).

Baltazar started the 2003–04 season still abroad, playing in the Nationwide Conference with Margate. He returned to his country in the following transfer window, joining C.D. Fátima in the third level, then spent a further campaign in the category with former side Odivelas.

Baltazar's only experience in the professionals came in 2005–06, as he appeared in only seven division two games for F.C. Barreirense and also suffered team relegation. He subsequently returned to the lower levels, appearing for Imortal DC, Abrantes Futebol Clube – split the 2006–07 season between the two teams – and Real Sport Clube (2007–08).

After another season abroad, with Digenis Akritas Morphou in the Cypriot Second Division, Baltazar returned to Portugal and joined G.D. Igreja Nova in level three (team relegation and folding). In January 2010 he rejoined Sintrense in the fourth category, retiring in June of the following year at the age of 34.

After announcing his retirement at the end of the 2010–11 season, Baltazar took up coaching, starting as assistant manager at his first club, Sintrense. In the summer of 2012, Baltazar was promoted to manager of Sintrense which he guided to promotion to the third tier of Portuguese football.[1] In July 2013, Baltazar was appointed as manager of second division side Atlético CP.[2] His stay with the Lisbon based side proved to be short lived as Baltazar would leave the Alcantarenses one month into the job.[3]

In April 2014, Baltazar joined the Filipino national team coaching staff to work under head coach Thomas Dooley.[4]
