António José Marreco de Gouveia (born 25 July 1987), commonly known as Tozé Marreco, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for C.D. Tondela as a striker.

Football career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Born in Miranda do Corvo, Coimbra District, Marreco began his youth career in local CD Lousanense, subsequently moving to another team in the region, C.F. União de Coimbra.

At União he played in several offensive positions, including in midfield, but was ultimately dispensed with at the end of the 2001–02 season, going on to finish his football formation with regional giants Académica de Coimbra, where he was a prolific goal scorer.

Professionals[edit]

In January 2007, after starting professionally with F.C. Pampilhosa, Marreco signed for Clube Atlético Mirandense also in the third division. On 12 August a phone call from his agent, Jorge Baidek, offered an invitation from Dutch second level's FC Zwolle, and he penned a contract later in the month.[1] He had a very successful season, being the second-best Portuguese scorer abroad only trailing Cristiano Ronaldo, while also helping his team to the promotion playoffs (finally without success) and the quarterfinals of the domestic cup, where the team lost to eventual winner Feyenoord.

In the 2008 summer Marreco joined Spanish division two side Deportivo Alavés, but could not amass one single official appearance with the club. On 22 January 2009 he moved to Bulgaria's PFC Lokomotiv Mezdra on a three-year deal,[2] making his team debut two days later in a 6–0 friendly drubbing of Botev Krivodol, where he scored twice.

On 30 June 2009 Marreco signed a two-year contract with Servette FC, in the Swiss second division. In the following year he returned to his country, being loaned to C.D. Aves in a season-long move;[3] in his debut as starter, on 28 October 2010, he scored a hat-trick in a 3–2 home win against Portimonense S.C. for the campaign's Portuguese League Cup.[4]
