Mário Jorge Malino Paulino (born 21 September 1986), known as Camora, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Romanian club CFR Cluj mainly as a left back – he can also operate as a left midfielder.

He spent most of his professional career in Romania with CFR Cluj, having signed in 2011.

Football career[edit]

Camora was born in Samora Correia, Benavente. After beginning in amateur football, in January 2006 he signed with S.C. Beira-Mar in the second division. He appeared rarely for the Aveiro-based team in his first years, also being loaned once; in the 2006–07 season he played two games with them in the Primeira Liga, eventually suffering relegation.

In the 2008 summer, Camora joined Associação Naval 1º de Maio in the top level, making his official debut for the club in the competition on 15 February 2009 by playing 30 minutes in a 2–2 away draw against C.D. Trofense. After only eight appearances in his first year, he went on to become an important first-team unit at the Figueira da Foz side.

On 24 May 2011, following Naval's relegation, Camora moved to CFR Cluj from Romania, joining several compatriots at the Liga I team.[1]
