Pedro Miguel Ferreira de Oliveira (born 30 November 1981) is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

After more than one decade in the youth ranks of Boavista FC, in his hometown of Porto, Oliveira moved to neighbours FC Porto at the age of 18, where he was largely unsuccessful, going on to serve loans for the following two-and-a-half years and starting at Académica de Coimbra in January 2003. In the 2005–06 season he signed for Vitória F.C. in a permanent deal, having played there the previous year on loan.

In the summer of 2006, Oliveira left for Romania's CFR Cluj along with a handful of Portuguese players. In his first year he was an important first-team member as the team finished third in Liga I and qualified for the UEFA Cup, but he was deemed surplus to requirements in the following campaign, being loaned to fellow league club FCM UTA Arad.

Oliveira moved countries again in 2008–09, joining Modena F.C. in Italy.[1] The following summer, also in Italy, he signed with modest A.C. Arezzo (third level), on a free transfer.[2]
