During his 13-year professional career, António played almost exclusively for two clubs: having started out at Académica de Coimbra, his excellent performances earned him a transfer – at only 19 – to national powerhouse Futebol Clube do 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 topscorer 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 seasons in double digits; he gained four caps for Portugal.
