In Club

João Mário was in the youth in his hometown Porto, before joining the acadamy of Sporting Clube de Portugal. On the 14th December 2011, he made his professional debut in the group stage of Europa League as a substitute, in a 0-2-loss to Lazio. Throughout the 2012-13 season, he mainly played in the second team Sporting B. However on 10 February 2013 the club used him for the first time in a Primeira Liga-Match. Because he never gained attention in the first half of the 2013-14 season, he signed on loan for league-rival Vitória S.C.. There he was able to fight for a first squad position and graduated 15 appearances. He returned to Sporting at the start of the 2014-15-Season. Since 2016 he's one of the most important defenders in Sportings team.
