Club career[edit]

Vasco da Gama[edit]

Born in Barra Mansa, Rio de Janeiro, Kardec started playing football for Vasco da Gama. On 14 February 2007,[4] in Manaus, he played his first match for Vasco da Gama, when his club beat Fast Clube 2–1 for the Copa do Brasil.[5] On 11 April 2007,[6] Kardec scored his first goal for Vasco, when his club and Botafogo drew 4–4 in a Campeonato Carioca match.[7] On 21 July 2007,[8] he scored his first Série A goal, when Vasco beat Atlético Mineiro 4–0.[7] Kardec played 26 Série A matches and scored eight goals in 2007,[9] while in 2008, he played 19 matches and scored two goals in that competition.[10]

Internacional[edit]

He was loaned to Internacional on 1 September 2009.[11][12] Kardec played his first game as an Internacional player on 28 October 2009, a Série A game against São Paulo at Estádio do Morumbi, in which he came as a substitute for Fabiano Eller.[13]

Benfica[edit]

Kardec announced on 13 December 2009 that he will play for Portuguese club Benfica in the 2010 season, after Vasco da Gama accepted a €2.5 million deal with the European team.[14] The following week, he signed a contract with the Lisbon-based club.[15] On 18 March 2010, Kardec scored the winning goal in their Europa League game against Olympique Marseille with a ferocious strike from a hard angle.

Santos[edit]

In July 2011, was confirmed that Alan was loaned for one season to Santos.[16] Santos attempt to renew the loan in July 2012, but Benfica denied, only allowing Kardec to leave on a permanent deal. Kardec played occasionally for Benfica B, as he was blocked in the first team by Cardozo, Lima and Rodrigo.[17][18]

Palmeiras[edit]

In June 2013, Brazilian side Palmeiras confirmed Kardec on one and half year loan from Portuguese side Benfica with an option to make the move permanent.[19] Kardec comes back to Brazil as a substitute for Kléber, that had a bad passage for the São Paulo city based club.[20] In 2014, Kardec had a great start to the year scoring against São Paulo and Corinthians, two of Palmeiras' biggest rivals.

São Paulo[edit]

Kardec signed a five-year deal with São Paulo on 12 May 2014, with the Brazilians paying €4.5 million.[21]

International career[edit]

Alan Kardec played eight South American Youth Championship matches for the Brazilian under-20 team between 20 January 2009 and 8 February,[22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29] scoring two goals, respectively against Uruguay and Argentina.[24][26] He scored two goals in Brazil's first 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup game, played on 27 September 2009, against Costa Rica.[30] He also scored a goal in the round of 16, against Uruguay,[31] played on 7 October 2009, and the only goal of the semifinal, against Costa Rica, played on 13 October 2009.[32]
