Mário da Silva Mateus (born 3 September 1943), commonly known as Marinho, is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Born in Lisbon, Marinho started his career with local Atlético Clube de Portugal, making his top division debuts in the 1962–63 season and suffering relegation as second from bottom. Three of the following four years with the club were spent in the second level.

From 1966 until his retirement, 14 years later, Marinho only competed in the main category, with Atlético, Sporting Clube de Portugal, C.S. Marítimo and G.D. Estoril Praia. In the 1969–70 campaign, whilst with the second side, he scored a career-best 14 goals in 26 games to win the first of his two national championships.

Marinho later took up coaching, being mainly associated with Sporting in various capacities. He acted as caretaker manager to the first team on two separate seasons, winning one match and drawing three in his four games in charge.[1]

International career[edit]

Marinho gained five caps for Portugal, during six years. His first came on 2 November 1969, in a 1–1 away draw against Switzerland for the 1970 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
