André Filipe Farias Marques (born 1 August 1987 in Laceiras, Carregal do Sal) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Moreirense F.C. as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Having made his professional debuts with Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2005–06, Marques spent the following season on loan to second division's C.D. Olivais e Moscavide.[1] He was also loaned the next year, "upgrading" to U.D. Leiria in the Primeira Liga; a lack of playing opportunities prompted another loan in February 2008, this time to S.C. Freamunde in the second level.

In 2008–09, Marques was loaned again by Sporting, now to Vitória F.C. as he was only fourth-choice for the Lisbon club. After Aly Cissokho's departure to FC Porto in January 2009, he became the starter, scoring his first goal in the top flight on the 30th but in a 2–4 home loss against Vitória de Guimarães.

For the 2009–10 campaign, Marques was recalled by Sporting: in the preseason, as Leandro Grimi was still convalescing from a serious injury and veteran Marco Caneira was often played out of his centre back position, he impressed and managed to make the roster, starting in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers against FC Twente (one match)[2] and ACF Fiorentina (both).[3][4]

Before 2010–11 started, Marques was told he was not part of newly appointed coach Paulo Sérgio's plans, which led to another loan deal, this time with S.C. Beira-Mar, freshly promoted to the top division. He stayed in Aveiro for the following season, but was sidelined for several months due to a knee injury.[5]
