Carlos Manuel Oliveiros da Silva, aka Vermelhinho (born 9 March 1959 in São João da Madeira), is a retired Portuguese footballer who played as a left winger.

Football career

After beginning professionally with two lowly clubs, including local A.D. Sanjoanense, Vermelhinho signed for country giants F.C. Porto at the age of 23, in 1982. In the 1983–84 European Cup Winners' Cup, he scored arguably his most important career goal, as Porto won 1–0 at Aberdeen (2–0 aggregate): in a foggy night, Vermelhinho scored an amazing long range lob, and went on to also play the entire final, lost 1–2 to Juventus FC.

Vermelhinho closed out his career at first club Sanjoanense, at the age of 36, also having represented, in one-season spells, Desportivo de Chaves, Sporting de Braga and Sporting de Espinho. For Portugal he earned two caps, being picked for the squad at UEFA Euro 1984, where he did not leave the bench.
