Jacques Pereira (born 3 February 1955 in Casablanca, Morocco), known as simply Jacques, is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a striker.

Football career[edit]

Jacques arrived in the Portuguese top flight with Sporting de Braga, in the 1979–80 campaign. His performances there attracted the attention of powerhouse F.C. Porto, still without Fernando Gomes who had left for a two-year "exile" at Sporting de Gijón in Spain.

In his first season at Porto Jacques topped the scoring charts at 27 goals, although the northern club came out empty in silverware. Such performances earned him his sole cap for the Portuguese national team.

Leaving Porto in 1985, barred by returned Gomes, Jacques moved back to Braga for two more seasons, then played one year with Sporting da Covilhã also in the main level. He eventually retired in 1992 at 37, after a couple of years of amateur football with Lusitano de Vila Real de Santo António – also his first club – and U.D. Castromarinense.
