Bruno Amaro Sousa Barros (born 17 February 1983 in Paço de Sousa, Penafiel), known as Amaro, is a former Portuguese professional footballer who played mainly as a central midfielder.

Football career[edit]

A product of hometown F.C. Penafiel's youth system, Amaro played with the club as a professional during five seasons, three in the second division and two in the Primeira Liga. In September 2006 he joined C.D. Nacional, still playing the first game of the campaign with his previous team; his official debut with the Madeirans came on the 9th, in a 0–1 home loss against Sporting Clube de Portugal.

Amaro finished his debut season in the first division with five goals in 25 matches, but appeared less significantly in the following years. For 2009–10, he served a season-long loan spell at Académica de Coimbra – teammate Miguel Fidalgo also moved to that team, in the same predicament.

At only three goals, Amaro was crowned Vitória de Setúbal's top scorer in the 2011–12 campaign – notably scoring the game's only goal at home against Sporting[1]– as the team again narrowly avoided relegation.[2]
