Born in Faro, Algarve, Felício made his professional debuts with hometown club S.C. Farense, appearing in the Primeira Liga not yet aged 18. He continued to develop at neighbours S.C. Olhanense, in the lower leagues.
After a single season with Académica de Coimbra, again in the top division, Felício established himself at fellow league side U.D. Leiria, helping them qualify twice for the UEFA Intertoto Cup. His solid displays attracted the attention of Spain's Real Sociedad, but he did not settle at all at his new team, and left in the following transfer window.
Before the start of the 2007 season, Felício signed with Russian Premier League club FC Rubin Kazan. He made his debut on 4 March, appearing as a starter in a 1–3 defeat against FC Rostov in the Russian Cup, but lost his place in the first team very soon, playing just two league games since the fifth round and eventually went on to serve two consecutive loans, one of them back in his country with C.S. Marítimo; in an interview, Rubin manager Kurban Berdyyev described him as "a heaven-born footballer, but a coward, not a fighter", criticizing him for his inability to demonstrate his talent during games.
