Club career

Diamantino was one of Sport Lisboa e Benfica's key players during the 1980s, winning several national champion and domestic cup titles. He also played in the UEFA Cup finals in 1983, lost to R.S.C. Anderlecht (0–1 and 1–1). He missed the Champions Cup final in 1988, due to an injury. Benfica also lost, this time to PSV Eindhoven in penalties.

Diamantino left Benfica in 1989–90, moving to first professional club Vitória de Setúbal where he played three more years, retiring at almost 34.

A manager since 1994 (starting at Setúbal), Diamantino was appointed second division S.C. Olhanense's manager midway through 2007–08, after having started the season at fellow league team Varzim SC. In May 2008, he was appointed assistant manager at Benfica, under new boss Quique Sánchez Flores; both left the post at the end of the season, after which Diamantino moved to Benfica's youth sides.

International career

Diamantino had 22 caps with five goals for the Portuguese national team, his debut coming on 18 November 1981, in a 2–1 win over Scotland, in the 1982 World Cup qualifyings.

He represented the nation at both UEFA Euro 1984 (runner-up) and the 1986 FIFA World Cup where, on July 11, 1986, in a 1–3 loss to Morocco, he played his last match and scored his last goal.
