André Renato Soares Martins (born 21 January 1990 in Santa Maria da Feira, Aveiro District) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Greek club Olympiacos F.C. as a central midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Sporting[edit]

After graduating from Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth academy Martins was loaned out, along with six other former club juniors, to Real S.C. in the third division.[1][2] For 2010–11, newly appointed coach Paulo Sérgio called him back for pre-season trainings, and, in August, he was sent to C.F. Os Belenenses in the second level, in a season-long loan; however, after José Mota's arrival at the team's bench, the player was deemed surplus to requirements and another loan was arranged in January 2011, at C.D. Pinhalnovense in division three.

Mainly due to injuries to teammates, Martins featured in Sporting's bench in some matches in 2011–12. On 20 October 2011 he made his official debut for the Lions, coming on as a substitute for Diego Capel for the last 15 minutes of a 2–0 home win against FC Vaslui, in the campaign's UEFA Europa League.[3]

Martins scored three goals in 29 competitive games in 2013–14 for the eventual vice-champions, his first in the Primeira Liga and overall coming on 15 September 2013 in a 2–0 success at S.C. Olhanense.[4] Following the appointment of manager Jorge Jesus, however, he was told to look for a new club, and left the Estádio José Alvalade on 30 June 2016.[5]

Olympiacos[edit]

On 8 August 2016, free agent Martins signed with six-time consecutive Superleague Greece champions Olympiacos FC.[6]

International career[edit]

Martins earned 43 caps for Portugal at youth level, including 17 for the under-21 team. On 10 June 2013 he made his debut for the full side, playing the dying minutes of the 1–0 exhibition game win with Croatia in Geneva;[7] on 14 August, again in a friendly, he replaced Rúben Amorim midway through the second half of a 1–1 draw against the Netherlands.[8]
