Fabiano Ribeiro de Freitas, known as simply Fabiano (born 29 February 1988), is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club F.C. Porto as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Born in Mundo Novo, Bahia, Fabiano joined São Paulo FC in 2006, aged 18. During his four-year spell he only appeared in two Série A games, also being loaned to several modest teams. He made his debut in the top division on 13 October 2007, in a 1–1 draw against Fluminense Football Club at the Maracanã,[1] being part of the squads that won back-to-back national championships.

On 28 May 2011, Fabiano signed with Portuguese club S.C. Olhanense. He made his debut in the top division on 13 August in a 1–1 draw at Sporting Clube de Portugal, and went on to appear in all league games during the season as the Algarve side retained its division status.

Fabiano moved to F.C. Porto in late May 2012, penning a four-year contract.[2]
