Eurípedes Daniel Adão Amoreirinha (born 5 August 1984 in Vila Franca de Xira, Lisbon) is a Portuguese former professional footballer who played mainly as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

A product of S.L. Benfica's youth system, Amoreirinha made his Primeira Liga debuts with farm team F.C. Alverca in 2003, then appeared in eight matches with the former in the following season as they conquered the national title after 11 years. He finished the campaign on loan, at modest G.D. Estoril Praia.

After two seasons on loan with C.F. Estrela da Amadora,[1] Amoreirinha was released by Benfica and moved to Romania's CFR Cluj for 1 million, joining the club's massive Portuguese contingent.[2] However, in February 2008, he was loaned to fellow Liga I side FCM UTA Arad.[3]

In January of the following year, Amoreirinha returned to Portugal, moving to Académica de Coimbra and being almost exclusively used as a backup in the following top flight campaigns, after which he was released in June 2011. He met exactly the same fate in the same amount of time in his next club, Vitória de Setúbal.

On 5 August 2014, after an unassuming spell in India and a few months with Sport Benfica e Castelo Branco, Amoreirinha signed for C.D. Santa Clara in the second division.[4] In June of the following year, he joined fellow league team F.C. Penafiel.[5]
