He first attracted attention while playing for CUF and for FC Barreirense and moved to Benfica in 1979/80. Here he won three championships, Primeira Divisão, in the 1982–83, 1983–84 and 1986–87 seasons, as well as three Cups of Portugal, in 1985, 1986, and 1987. He also played at the UEFA Cup finals, in 1983, lost to Anderlecht. During his time at Benfica.He quit the national team after the "Saltillo Affair" and played for Benfica until the 1987–88 season, during which he moved to FC Sion in Switzerland. He later returned to Portugal, playing for Sporting Lisbon for the 1988/89 and 1989/90 seasons, before moving to Boavista FC, where he stayed until 1991/92. He played the last two seasons of his career at GD Estoril-Praia. He finished his playing career in middle of the 1993–94 season, to become a football manager.The biggest club he coached was Sporting Lisbon, where he was relatively unsuccessful.

For the Portuguese national team, the "Selecção Nacional", he played 42 caps and scored 8 goals.Carlos Manuel debuted for the national team on March 26, 1980, in a 1–4 1982 World Cup qualifying defeat to Scotland. Three of them were particularly memorable: the goal in the 1–0 win over Poland in Wrocław on October 28, 1983, which helped Portugal to qualify for Euro 84; the shot in the historic 1–0 victory over Germany in Stuttgart on 16 October 1985, which secured qualification for the 1986 World Cup, and the goal in the 1–0 win over England in the first game of the finals in Mexico. However, the 1–3 loss to Morocco on 11 July 1986 meant the elimination of Portugal from the tournament and turned out to be Carlos Manuel's last cap for his country, at the age of just 28.
