Paulo Jorge Carreira Nunes (born 16 June 1970 in Luanda), known as Paulo Jorge, is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Football career[edit]

During his career, Jorge represented U.D. Leiria, AD Fafe, C.D. Feirense, SC Vila Real and Gil Vicente FC. Having signed from the lower leagues into the second division in 1998, he contributed with seven matches as the latter club promoted immediately.

For the next six Primeira Liga seasons, Jorge remained an undisputed starter, going on to amass nearly 300 overall appearances for the Barcelos-based team and retiring at the age of 38 after a ten-year spell. At the end of the 2003–04 campaign, as Gil finished 12th, his displays earned him the Portuguese Goalkeeper of the Year award.
