He amassed Primeira Liga totals of 227 matches and 22 goals over 12 seasons, mainly in representation of Porto. He also appeared in the competition with Gil Vicente and Braga, and was part of the Portugal squad at Euro 1996.
Folha was born in Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto District. In his career he played mostly for FC Porto, with loan stints in Portugal, Belgium and Greece, being often used as a substitute by his main club where he won a total of 18 major titles (including seven Primeira Liga trophies and five Taça de Portugal). From 1994 to 1996, he had his best years with the team, contributing ten goals in 58 games as they won back-to-back national championships.
At the end of the 2002–03 season, aged 32, Folha was finally released by Porto and joined F.C. Penafiel of the Segunda Liga, helping to a return to the top flight in his first year. He retired from football in 2005, and joined his last team's coaching staff immediately afterwards, also serving a two-season stint as assistant manager, one in each of the major levels.
In June 2018, Folha replaced the departed Vítor Oliveira at the helm of top-division club Portimonense SC. He finished 12th in his first season on the Algarve, and resigned on 18 January 2020 when second from bottom having lost to last-placed C.D. Aves.
