Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Secretário (born May 12, 1970 in São João da Madeiramarker) is a former Portuguese football, who played mainly as a right defender.

Club career

After making his professional debuts with F.C. Penafiel, and spending an additional season with F.C. Famalicão (both teams were then in the first division), Secretário, who started as a midfielder, moved in 1992-93 to Sporting Clube de Braga, where he spent another campaign.

In 1993, he joined league powerhouse F.C. Porto, quickly establishing himself as an undisputed starter, in defense or midfield, and helping the northerners to two leagues, one Cup and one Supercup in his first spell. He attracted attention from Real Madrid, which signed the player in July 1996, but he would encounter extreme difficulties in carving a starting niche with the Spanish side, which was aggravated with the January 1997 signing of Italianmarker Christian Panucci.

Secretário returned to Porto in January 1998 for six 1/2 additional seasons, and would go on to conquer the UEFA Cup and the Champions League in back-to-back years, although he was now only backup to emergent Paulo Ferreira. On March 14, 2002, he was sent off during a 2–1 continental home win over Panathinaikos, receiving a three-match suspension.

In June 2005, he retired after one year with F.C. Maia (second level).

International career

Secretário had 35 caps for Portugal, and played at the 1996 and 2000 European Championship. In both cases second-choice, he totalled three appearances.
