6' 0" tall Portuguese player born in Lisbon who started his career with his Lisbon-based club Sport Uniao Sintrense and made 38 league appearances for them during the 1996/97 and 1997/98 seasons, scoring two goals.

Bruno moved on to Sporting Clube de Braga for the 1997/98 campaign and then linked up with Odivelas for 1999/00. He broke into their first team during the 2001/02 season and scored twice in 26 league appearances.

Bruno also started 2002/03 with Odivelas but after making nine league appearances and scoring three goals he left Portugal midway through the season and signed for German Regional League outfit Dresdner Sport Club.

He scored once in 12 league appearances for Dresdner before moving to England in the summer of 2003.

In August 2003 Bruno joined Margate on trial and after featuring in a friendly at Herne Bay he signed a month-to-month contract in September 2003. He was hoping to get a move into the Football League so didn't wish to commit to a longer deal. After featuring in another friendly at Sittingbourne Bruno finally made his competitive debut on 20.9.03 when he came on as a substitute in a 1-0 win at Halifax in the Conference. He sat out the next game but was then picked to play in midfield as Margate took on Northwich at their adopted home in Dover on 27.9.03. Despite being a centre-back by trade Bruno made an almost instant impact when he headed home after just 38 seconds and his goal set Margate on the way to a 3-1 win. However he didn't feature again and towards the end of October 2003 Bruno was released.

After leaving Margate he returned to Portugal and joined Centro Desportivo de Fatima where he scored once in 11 league appearances before the end of the 2003/04 campaign.

Bruno returned to Odivelas for the 2004/05 season and played 30 league games, scoring twice.

He signed for Barreirense ahead of the 2005/06 campaign and featured in seven league games without scoring

Bruno's next move took him to Imortal de Albufeira for 2006/07 but he only made three league appearances for the Portuguese 2nd Division side.

In the summer of 2007 he joined Real Massama, also in the Portuguese 2nd Division, and played regularly there throughout the 2007/08 season, scoring three times in 28 league appearances.

Bruno spent 2008/09 playing for Digenis Akritas Morphou in Cyprus before returning home to join Grupo Desportivo Igreja Nova for the 2009/10 campaign.

He went back to his first club Sport Uniao Sintrense for the start of the 2010/11 season and became the clubs player-coach. Bruno retired at the end of the season aged 33 but stayed on as a coach - he held a UEFA B badge.

His full name was Bruno Miguel Nunes Baltazar.
