Club career[edit]

Sporting[edit]

A product of Sporting Clube de Portugal's prolific youth ranks, Carriço was born in Cascais and made his professional debuts in 2007–08, splitting that season with S.C. Olhanense and Cyprus' AEL Limassol, in both cases on loan. Having returned to Sporting he made his Primeira Liga debut on 26 October 2008, replacing injured Tonel in a 0–0 away draw against F.C. Paços de Ferreira and securing a starting place even after the latter became available.[1]

For the 2010–11 season, after longtime incumbent João Moutinho's departure to Porto, Carriço was chosen as new club captain by newly appointed coach Paulo Sérgio. In the following campaign, under both Domingos Paciência and his successor Ricardo Sá Pinto, he was used almost exclusively as a defensive midfielder.[2][3]

Reading[edit]

On 31 December 2012, Sporting announced that Carriço had been sold to Premier League team Reading for a fee of £609,000 (750,000). He signed an initial two-and-a-half-year contract, with the option of a further year after that.[4] He made his debut for his new club on 12 January 2013, starting and playing 45 minutes in a 3–2 home win against West Bromwich Albion.[5]

Carriço only totalled 87 minutes of action – all in the league – and four bench appearances, as the English eventually suffered relegation after ranking 19th.

Sevilla[edit]

On 17 July 2013, Carriço joined La Liga side Sevilla FC on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move.[6] He made his debut on 1 August in a UEFA Europa League qualifier in which he scored the last goal of a 3–0 home win over FK Mladost Podgorica.[7] His league debut occurred on 20 October in a 2–2 draw at Real Valladolid,[8] and his first goal for the club came on 11 January 2014, a late equaliser which ensured a 1–1 away draw against Elche CF;[9] his only other goal of the campaign was on 9 March, the second in a 3–1 win at UD Almería.[10]

Carriço played the entirety of the 2014 UEFA Europa League Final in Turin, partnering Stéphane Mbia in defensive midfield as Sevilla beat S.L. Benfica on penalties.[11] He signed a permanent deal with Sevilla on 23 June 2014,[12] and his first match after that was the UEFA Super Cup at Cardiff City Stadium, a 0–2 loss to compatriots Real Madrid.[13]

International career[edit]

As a youth international, Carriço appeared at the 2007 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, where he was elected as one of the best players after scoring two goals in just three games (Portugal did not go through the group stage).[14] The following year, he progressed into the under-21s.
