Timeline of Jorge Cadete


On 23 July 2015, Cadete was appointed director of football of U.F.C. Almeirim in Santarém.


Cadete’s return to the public eye in Scotland prompted rookie co-managers Gerry Britton and Derek Whyte to take a gamble on the striker. He signed a short-term contract for top division relegation battlers Partick Thistle in late January 2004, ending his 18-month exile from the game; the move was controversial however, as he had already agreed to sign for Raith Rovers, even being photographed in the team shirt by the media.

Cadete returned to his country in the 2004–05 campaign, joining third division’s C.D. Pinhalnovense. He cited the major factor in signing for the club was working with coach Paco Fortes.


At the start of 2003–04 season, aged 35, Cadete decided to come out of retirement. He returned to Scotland to make a guest appearance on Tam Cowan’s Scottish football show “Offside”, where he spoke of his love for Celtic and how he regretted leaving; he also invited Celtic boss Martin O’Neill to give him a trial for his former club.


For 2000–01, Cadete was loaned to the Lisbon-based C.F. Estrela da Amadora. As newly promoted Scottish side St Mirren looked for a striker to bolster its chances of top-flight survival, he almost made a return to the country, but the proposed January switch fell through and he remained in Estrela, subsequently seeing out his Benfica contract after claiming unpaid wages.


Cadete was chosen for the UEFA Euro 1996 finals by António Oliveira, after playing the decisive last match in the qualifying rounds against Republic of Ireland and netting the last in a 3–0 win as a substitute. His final appearance was a 0–3 defeat to England on 22 April 1998, in another friendly.


After failing to show for pre-season training, Cadete was transferred to RC Celta de Vigo of La Liga for a fee of around £3,500,000. He played one full season for the Galicians, and scored on his debut on 27 September 1997 in a 3–3 draw away to Atlético Madrid. Cadete moved to Benfica alongside former Celtic teammate van Hooijdonk in January 1999, and a year later he returned to the United Kingdom, joining newly promoted Premier League side Bradford City on loan until the end of the campaign; he made his debut as a substitute in a 1–1 draw with Aston Villa at Valley Parade, and was described as having an “instant impact” in that game.


Born to Portuguese parents in Mozambique, he was groomed in Sporting’s prolific youth system, and later was noted while at Celtic as he led the goalscoring charts in 1996–97.

Cadete amassed Primeira Liga totals of 233 matches and 73 goals over 12 seasons. A Portuguese international throughout the 90s, he represented the nation at Euro 1996.

By early 1996, especially after the sacking of manager Bobby Robson and the arrival of Carlos Queiroz, Cadete was completely out of favour at Sporting and made no more appearances for them. He amassed competitive totals for the club of 203 games and 81 goals.

On 24 February 1996, Cadete was introduced at Celtic Park, Glasgow to supporters before Celtic’s league match against Partick Thistle. However, due to lengthy negotiations between Celtic and Sporting and issues with registering the player, his transfer was not finalised until April, and turned out to be controversial: despite being signed prior to the transfer deadline, the Scottish Football Association delayed processing his registration in time for the Scottish Cup semi-finals against Rangers at Hampden Park, and following a complaint from Celtic chairman Fergus McCann, SFA chief Jim Farry was eventually relieved of his duties after being found guilty of deliberately holding back the player’s registration.

His eventual debut came at home against Aberdeen as he came off the bench to score his team’s fifth goal in a 5–0 win, thus becoming an instant hit; the loud roar generated by the fans celebrating his goal blew out BBC Radio 5’s microphones, who had been covering the game UK wide on radio, and they went off air for a short time until it was repaired.


Towards the end of his time at Sporting, Cadete was loaned out again in November 1994, this time to Italy’s Brescia Calcio. He only managed one Serie A goal during his stint, returning subsequently to the Estádio José Alvalade and featuring in the first leg of the Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira against FC Porto in August 1995.


Cadete won 33 caps for the Portuguese national team scoring five goals, 22 while at Sporting, nine while at Celtic and two as a Celta player. His first game came on 29 August 1990, in a 1–1 friendly draw with Germany.


Cadete broke into the senior team in 1987–88, starting in four of his six appearances and subsequently being sent on loan to fellow league club Vitória F.C. for the following season, helping the Setúbal-based side to the fifth place. He thus returned to Lisbon, where he would play for the following five years uninterrupted and in the 1992–93 campaign he was the national championship’s top-scorer with 18 goals.
