Football career[edit]

A product of S.C. Braga's youth system, Cícero was in born in Seia, Guarda, Portugal. He was promoted to the first team for the 2004–05 campaign, making his official debut with the main squad in a 2–2 away draw against Académica de Coimbra on 30 August 2004; on 21 November, as a second-half substitute, he scored his first top division goal, in a 2–0 home win against G.D. Estoril Praia.[1]

In January 2005 Cícero moved to Russia for FC Dynamo Moscow, as many Portuguese players (or playing in the league) during that period, returning to Portugal in the 2009 January transfer window and joining Braga's rivals Vitória de Guimarães. In the summer he signed with second level club U.D. Oliveirense, in a season-long loan.[2]

On 25 June 2013 Cícero joined FC Astana in the Kazakhstan Premier League, on a year-long move.[3] He subsequently returned to Paços de Ferreira.[4]
