Paulo Jorge dos Santos Futre (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈpaulu ˈfutɾɨ], born February 28, 1966 in Montijo) is a former Portuguese professional footballer, who played mostly as a left winger.

After exploding at Sporting Clube de Portugal well before his 20th birthday, he soon moved to Futebol Clube do Porto, after which embarked in an extensive career - until 1998 - having represented clubs in Spain, France, Italy and Japan, most notably Atlético Madrid.

Club career

Futre first appeared professionally in 1983–84, as a 17-year old for Sporting Clube de Portugal. When he requested a pay rise from president João Rocha, he was turned down and left for F.C. Porto after just one season. In the following years, Futre collected two Portuguese Championships, also playing in the 1987 European Champions Cup final, won by Porto as he put on a Man of the Match performance.[1]

After that continental win, Futre was traded to Atlético de Madrid. Once there, he quickly rose to fan favourite status. However, his physical weakness left him with several knee injuries which tormented his career in the 1990s. In his fifth season, he provided countless assists for striker Manolo who netted 27 times for the Pichichi Trophy, with Futre himself scoring in the season's domestic cup, a 2–0 win over neighbours Real Madrid.

In January 1993, he moved to Porto and Sporting rivals S.L. Benfica, winning a Portuguese Cup in his short stay, as his injury woes persisted. After Benfica, he signed one-season contracts with Olympique de Marseille, A.C. Reggiana 1919, A.C. Milan and West Ham United. Finally, he returned to Atlético Madrid (10 games in 1997–98), effectively ending his career with J. League side Yokohama Flugels.

Futre remained football director at Atlético Madrid until 2003,[2] subsequently becoming a real-estate developer in his hometown.

International career

Futre was capped 41 times for Portugal in a 12-year span, scoring six goals, his debut coming at 17 against Finland, for the UEFA Euro 1984 qualifiers, on April 27, 1983.

He was a member of the Portuguese national team that competed in the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico, in an eventual group stage exit.

Personal

Futre's older son, Paulo, has a rock band, "Fr1day". Younger son Fábio played for Atlético Madrid youths and was called-up for Portugal's under-17 national side.

His nephew, Artur Futre (born 1983), played professionally for F.C. Alverca, F.C. Maia and C.D. Aves, without much impact.
