Description:
António José dos Santos Folha (born 21 May 1971 in Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto) is a retired Portuguese footballer who played mostly as a winger.

Club career

In his career, speedy Folha played mostly for Futebol Clube do Porto, with loan stints in Portugal, Belgium and Greece. With his main club, he was often used as a substitute, winning a total of 18 major titles (including seven leagues and five cups); from 1994–96, he had his best years with the northerners, contributing with 10 goals in 58 games combined as the team won back-to-back national championships.

In 2003–04, Folha was finally released by FC Porto and joined F.C. Penafiel in the second division, helping it return to the top flight in his first season. He retired from football in 2005, and joined the side's coaching staff immediately afterwards, also serving a two-season stint as assistant manager with the club, one in each of the major levels.

In 2008, Folha returned to Porto once again, being named assistant with the junior team.

International career

For Portugal Folha had 26 caps during a three-year period, and was part of the roster for UEFA Euro 1996, appearing in three games in an eventual quarterfinal exit, and assisting Ricardo Sá Pinto in the 1–1 group stage draw against Denmark.

Previously, he helped the U-20 win the 1989 FIFA World Youth Championship, in Saudi Arabia.
