Bruno Miguel Moreira de Sousa (born 24 September 1982), known as Bruno Miguel, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Académico de Viseu FC as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

Bruno Miguel was born in Oliveira de Azeméis, Porto. Until the age of 23, he played in either the third or fourth divisions of Portuguese football, signing in the 2005 off-season with Varzim S.C. in the second level and appearing in 31 games in his first year.

Bruno Miguel made his Primeira Liga debut in 2007–08, playing 26 minutes for U.D. Leiria in a 1–1 away draw against Académica de Coimbra on 26 August 2007. He finished the campaign with 16 league matches (his personal best with the club), and the team suffered relegation.

After three more seasons with Leiria being used mostly as a backup, 29-year-old Bruno Miguel joined FC Astra Ploieşti in the Romanian Liga I.[1] He returned to his country in the following summer, being third or fourth-choice stopper during his four-year tenure in the top flight with G.D. Estoril Praia (a maximum of 12 appearances in 2013–14); with the latter, he also appeared in eight games in the UEFA Europa League, scoring in the 2013–14 edition in a 1–2 group stage home loss to eventual winners Sevilla FC.[2]
