Diogo Carlos Correia Amado (born 21 January 1990) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for G.D. Estoril Praia as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]


Born in Lagos, Algarve, Amado joined Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth system at the age of 11. He made his senior debuts in 2009–10, splitting the season between two third division clubs (both on loan), including farm team Real Sport Clube; in June, he was released by the Lions.

For 2010–11, Amado joined U.D. Leiria in the Primeira Liga, making his debut in the competition on 15 August in a 0–0 away draw against S.C. Beira-Mar and appearing in exactly half of the league games as the team finished in tenth position. In the following campaign, he was loaned to G.D. Estoril Praia in the second level.

Sheffield Wednesday / Estoril[edit]

On 10 July 2012, Amado signed a two-year contract with Sheffield Wednesday,[1] having been recommended to manager Dave Jones by José Semedo, an ex-teammate of Amado from his Sporting youth days.

However, he failed to settle and left the Owls the following month, rejoining his previous club Estoril, now in the top flight.[2]
