Born in Chaves, Adão started his career with hometown's G.D. Chaves, moving to the Primeira Liga in 1980 with Varzim SC. He appeared in only eight games in his first season, which ended in relegation, but helped with 27 and three goals to an immediate promotion back.
In the 1985 summer, Adão joined Vitória de Guimarães. In his second year he played 30 matches as starter and scored twice – including once in 1–0 away win against S.C. Braga in the Minho derby – as his team finished in third position.
Adão signed with C.F. Os Belenenses for 1988–89. On 12 October 1988, in the campaign's UEFA Cup, he scored the game's only goal at home against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, as the Lisbon club ousted the title holders 2–0 on aggregate. Later in the season he also appeared in the final of the Portuguese Cup, won against S.L. Benfica.
Adão gained 11 caps for Portugal, all of his appearances coming after the 1986 FIFA World Cup as practically all of the national team had defected following the infamous Saltillo Affair. His debut came, however, prior to the tournament in Mexico, in a friendly with Finland on 22 January 1986 (1–1 home draw).
