He returned in 1999 and went on to have relative impact in the first team, being mainly used as a substitute and being part of the squad as the club won the Primeira Liga in his last year, although he did not appear in any matches whatsoever.
Belgium / Russia
With the start of the new millennium Moreira moved to Standard Liège, where he quickly became a fan favourite, going on to spend five years in Belgium, a loan to Hamburger SV in 2004–05 notwithstanding.
In August 2006, he joined Russia's FC Dynamo Moscow, a club that was signing a large number of Portuguese and Portugal-based players at the time. Unsettled as the vast majority of those, he returned to his country of adoption in January, as lowly C.D. Aves battled to avoid relegation from the top level, which eventually did not happen.
On 5 July 2007, Moreira signed a two-year contract with FK Partizan in Serbia, being handed the #10 shirt whilst also becoming the first Portuguese player to represent the club. He made his competitive debut on 19 July in a game against HŠK Zrinjski Mostar, and scored his first official goal on 2 August in a UEFA Cup game against the same club.
On 29 September 2007, Moreira scored against city rivals Red Star in a 2–2 draw – this made him the first ever Portuguese to score in a Belgrade derby. In his first season at the club he appeared 28 times and netted seven goals, as Partizan won the league title; to this he added the domestic cup.
In a UEFA Cup match at Sevilla FC, on 3 December 2008, Moreira collapsed early into the game, being immediately taken into observation, and fully recovering. On 10 April 2009 he agreed to sign a new three-year contract, which would keep him with Partizan until 2012.
Following impressive and consistent performances, Moreira was named in the 2008–09 SuperLiga Team of the Year, alongside seven teammates, as the double was again conquered. On 5 August 2009, grieving the loss of his mother a day earlier, he decided to play in the second leg of Partizan's UEFA Champions League qualifier against APOEL FC: he scored the opener in the third minute, but the Cypriots eventually progressed 2–1 on aggregate.
Moreira split the following years with Dalian Aerbin F.C. in China and another team in Serbia, FK Vojvodina. In late 2012 the 34-year-old moved clubs and countries again, joining Spain's UD Salamanca.
Moreira retired in 2013 at the age of 35, being named Atlético Clube de Portugal's director of football. He came out of retirement in January of the following year, after being convinced by newly appointed coach Neca.
In 2010, with the increasing development and professionalization of football in Guinea-Bissau, he decided to represent the land of his ancestors at full level, earning his first cap in October of that year, at the age of 32.
