Over the course of 14 seasons, Peixe amassed Primeira Liga totals of 172 games and four goals.
Born in Nazaré, Peixe emerged from Sporting Clube de Portugal's prolific youth ranks, making his first-team debuts shortly after another club great, Luís Figo. In the 1991 summer, already firmly established in the club's starting XI, he was essential in helping the national under-20s win the FIFA World Cup in Lisbon, where he also received the Golden Ball.
After helping Sporting, with Figo, to the 1995 Taça de Portugal, Peixe moved abroad to Sevilla FC, accompanying coach Toni. However, grossly unsettled, he left in the immediate winter transfer window, returning to the Lions but never regaining his previous form.
Peixe then played five seasons at FC Porto, with a six-month loan spell with F.C. Alverca in between. He retired in June 2004, after unassuming one-season stints with S.L. Benfica and U.D. Leiria.
In 2008, Peixe returned to the national team, being charged with coaching the under-16s. In the following years he worked with several of its youth sides, as both head and assistant manager.
