Jorge Filipe Avelino Teixeira (born 27 August 1986 in Lisbon) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for A.C. Siena on loan from FC Zürich in Switzerland, as a central defender.

Football career

Teixeira spent eight years in Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth system, but never appeared officially for its first team, being released in 2005 and spending his first two seasons as a senior in the third division, with Casa Pia A.C. and Odivelas FC, both hailing from the Lisbon Region. In 2007–08 he made his debuts in the second level, being relegated with C.D. Fátima.[1]

Teixeira split the 2008–09 season between two teams in Cyprus, suffering relegation with Atromitos Yeroskipou. In the 2009 summer he signed for Maccabi Haifa F.C. and, the following year, joined FC Zürich of Switzerland, who paid a fee of $1.2 million to the Israeli.

On 20 July 2010 Teixeira made his Super League debut with his new team, scoring the opener in an eventual 2–3 away loss against FC Basel.[2]
