Igor de Souza Fonseca (born 19 February 1980), known as simply Igor, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Greek club Panthrakikos F.C. as a forward.

Football career[edit]

Born in Maceió, Alagoas, Igor made his professional debuts in Portugal, with lowly F.C. Maia of the second division. Subsequently he played two full seasons in the top level, with S.C. Braga and Vitória de Setúbal, contributing with four league goals at the former as it finished fifth and qualified for the UEFA Cup.

Merely a few weeks into the 2005–06 Portuguese League campaign, Braga relocated Igor's loan from fellow league team C.F. Estrela da Amadora to Spain's Pontevedra CF, a club in division three. The Galicians, in turn, after the move was made permanent in the 2007 summer, loaned the player several times during his contract, and he managed 26 matches and six goals in the second division with Girona FC[1] and Levante UD combined, before returning to Pontevedra in January 2010 (also had a brief loan spell back in Brazil).

Igor suffered two relegations in 2010–11, one with Pontevedra and the other with CD Tenerife, joining the latter – in the second division – in January 2011, on loan. In July 2011 he moved to another team in the country, UD Salamanca.


Igor's younger brother, Yuri, is also a footballer and a forward. They shared teams at Maia (where they arrived at a young age) and Pontevedra.

His cousin, Charles, also played several seasons in Spain, and also represented Pontevedra.[2][3]
