José Gaspar da Silva Azevedo, known as simply Gaspar (born 1 June 1975 in Santo Tirso, Porto), is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Varzim S.C. in the Portuguese third division, as a central defender.
During the vast majority of his career, Gaspar rarely played more than one season with the same club. He represented C.D. Trofense, F.C. Tirsense (where he made his first division debuts), Vitória de Setúbal, F.C. Porto (which were crowned league champions at the end of the 1997–98 campaign, but he was only fourth of fifth-choice in his position), Leça FC – in a brief return to the second level – F.C. Alverca (he represented the Lisbon club on two occasions), F.C. Paços de Ferreira and Gil Vicente FC, amassing totals of 185 top flight games (with 16 goals scored) in his first eight years as a professional.
In the 2004–05 campaign Gaspar played for AC Ajaccio in France, appearing in 16 Ligue 1 matches, then switched back to his country with C.F. Os Belenenses. At the age of already 32 he would settle at Rio Ave FC, helping the Vila do Conde side return to the top division in his first season while adding a round-of-16 presence in the domestic cup.
From 2008 to 2011 Gaspar only missed five league matches for Rio Ave combined, also netting three goals as the club consecutively managed to maintain its division status. In July 2012, after having appeared in a total of 322 games in the main category of Portuguese football (19 goals), he signed for one year with S.C. Covilhã in division two.
