Club career

Coelho reached F.C. Porto from northern neighbours F.C. Penafiel aged 18, and spent his first professional months with the reserve side, being loaned shortly after to F.C. Maia, by then in the second division. Subsequently, he spent the following three seasons in the same predicament – during 2007–08, he played for Portimonense SC, alongside namesake Nuno Miguel Coelho, also in level two.

On August 24, 2008, Coelho made his first division debut, with C.F. Estrela da Amadora, playing 90 minutes in a 1–0 home win against Académica de Coimbra. In July 2009, he returned to Porto, following the retirement of veteran Pedro Emanuel, appearing only once during the league season, the 4–1 win at União de Leiria, in the last matchday (plus four Portuguese League Cup contests and the first half of the 0–5 loss at Arsenal, for the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 second leg).

On 4 July 2010, Coelho signed a four-year contract with Sporting Clube de Portugal for €1million, as part of the deal that sent João Moutinho in the opposite direction. The northerners retained 50% of the player's rights.[1][2] His first official game came on 13 August, in a 0–1 loss at F.C. Paços de Ferreira; on the 26th, he scored a rare goal, shooting from 40 metres as the Lions defeated Brøndby IF 3–0 after losing 0–2 at home, thus qualifying for the UEFA Europa League's group stage.[3]

After the end of the 2010–11 season (where he was used rarely, sometimes not even making the list of 18), on 7 June 2011, Coelho was sold to S.C. Braga as an installment deduction on the deals of João Pereira and Evaldo Fabiano transfers, signing a four-year contract.[4]

International career

During roughly two years, Coelho played for Portugal U-21s.[5] On 29 August 2010, he was first called to the senior side, for two UEFA Euro 2012 qualifiers against Cyprus and Norway, but did not make his debut.
