During his 14-year professional career, Manuel António played almost exclusively for two teams: having started out at Académica de Coimbra, his excellent performances earned him a transfer – at only 19 – to national powerhouse F.C. Porto, where he appeared sparingly in three years (still managing to score regularly).
In 1968 Manuel António returned to Académica, being crowned the first division's top scorer in the first season in his second spell, with the Students finishing in sixth place. He all but saw out his career eight years later at the same club, still having a further four campaigns in double digits; he gained four caps for Portugal in eight months, his debut coming on 6 April 1969 in a 0–0 friendly draw against Mexico.
