Alessandro Ferreira Leonardo (born 10 March 1987 in Brazil), commonly known as Sandro, is a Brazilian football player who currently plays for Hong Kong First Division League club Yuen Long.



Sandro was sent off after a second bookable offence in the match against South China, when he pressured Zhang Chunhui to take his goal kick quickly and was considered by the referee to have obstructed the goalkeeper. Citizen lost the match 1:2.[1]

Sandro scored a hat-trick against Tai Po FC on 2 May 2009 to help the club win 4:1 and end the 2008–09 season in third place in the league.[2] On 25 October 2009, Sandro scored 5 goals for Citizen against Happy Valley AA at Siu Sai Wan Sports Ground, including a 50-yard lob.[3]

With Citizen, Sandro won the 2010–11 Hong Kong Senior Challenge Shield after defeating South China AA in the final on penalties. But his contract was not renewed by the club at the end of the season.

Biu Chun Rangers[edit]

Sandro joined Biu Chun Rangers for the 2011–12 season. He scored on his debut for the club in the 1–4 defeat away to TSW Pegasus. He scored again in the second game against his old club Citizen to tie the match 2–2.

Sun Pegasus[edit]

Sandro joined Sun Pegasus for an undisclosed fee before the start of 2012–13 season. However, he only scored 1 goal in 10 matches and was released by the club on 31 December 2012.[4]


Sandro re-joined Citizen as a free transfer after he was released by Sun Pegasus.
