Flávio Nunes Ferreira (born 19 October 1991) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Málaga CF in Spain, as a central defender or defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Ferreira was born in Nogueira do Cravo, Oliveira do Hospital, and after starting his youth career with hometown's F.C. Oliveira do Hospital, he finished his formation with Académica de Coimbra.

In August 2009 Ferreira moved to neighbouring G.D. Tourizense – who acted as Académica's farm team – until the end of the season.[1] A year later he signed for second division club S.C. Covilhã in the same predicament,[2] and played his first match as a professional on 26 September 2010, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 1–0 home win against S.C. Freamunde.[3]

In June 2011 Ferreira returned to Académica, and made his top level debut on 15 August, again coming from the bench in a 2–1 away success over U.D. Leiria. On 23 December 2011 he renewed his link with the Students, running until 2015.[4]

On 12 June 2013 Académica agreed a deal for Ferreira with La Liga side Málaga CF,[5] with the player signing a three-year contract.[6] On 12 January of the following year he first appeared in the Spanish league, replacing injured Weligton in the 34th minute of a 0–1 loss at Levante UD.[7]




Ferreira's older brother, António, is also a footballer. He also represented Tourizense and was brought up at Sporting Clube de Portugal, but spent most of his career in the lower leagues.
