Folha was born in Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto. In his career he played mostly for Futebol Clube do Porto, with loan stints in Portugal, Belgium and Greece, being often used as a substitute by his main club where he won a total of 18 major titles (including seven leagues and five cups); from 1994 to 1996 he had his best years with the northerners, contributing with ten goals in 58 games combined as the team won back-to-back national championships.
At the end of the 2002–03 season, aged 32, Folha was finally released by Porto and joined F.C. Penafiel in the second division, helping it return to the top flight in his first year. He retired from football in 2005, and joined the side's coaching staff immediately afterwards, also serving a two-season stint as assistant manager with the club, one in each of the major levels.
In 2008 Folha returned to Porto once again, being named assistant with the junior team and remaining in the position for several seasons.
Folha gained 26 caps for Portugal during a three-year period, and was part of the roster for UEFA Euro 1996, appearing in three games in an eventual quarterfinal exit and assisting Ricardo Sá Pinto in the 1–1 group stage draw against Denmark.
