Pedro Miguel Carreiro Resendes, OIH (born 28 April 1973), commonly known as Pauleta (Portuguese pronunciation: [pawˈletɐ]), is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a striker.

During 18 years as a senior, he never played in the Portuguese first division, having spent most of his professional career in Spain and France (12 seasons combined, mostly for Paris Saint-Germain).

Pauleta scored 47 goals in 88 matches for the Portuguese national team, a national record at the time of his retirement. He played for his country in two World Cups and two European Championships.

Club career[edit]

Early years / Spain[edit]

Born in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island in the Azores, Pauleta started his career at youth level playing for local clubs in his native island, before turning professional with lower league clubs in Portugal, working his way up the ranks. He was part of F.C. Porto's youth team for a brief stint, but left soon due to homesickness, signing his first professional contract with Clube União Micaelense in 1994 and spending one season at the club. He then moved to second division's G.D. Estoril Praia in 1995, scoring 19 goals in 30 league games.

The goals continued to flow following a switch to Spanish second level club UD Salamanca in 1996, with Pauleta strucking 19 times as it gained promotion to La Liga in the following year, scoring a further 15 times in his first season in the first division. That rate earned him a move to Deportivo de La Coruña in the 1998 summer.

Pauleta netted his first goal in European competition in the 1999–2000 UEFA Cup, netting in a 3–1 home win against Montpellier HSC,[2] and repeating the feat in the second leg (2–0).[3] On 22 November 1999 he bagged a hat-trick for Depor in a home fixture against Sevilla FC,[4] going on to enjoy a two-year spell with the Galician team, which included 33 goals in 92 official matches, including eight from 12 starts as the club won its first league championship title in 2000.

Bordeaux[edit]

On 1 September 2000, after being tracked by the likes of Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Sunderland, Pauleta joined FC Girondins de Bordeaux in France, reportedly for financial and family reasons.[5] He scored three as his new club crushed FC Nantes 5–0 in an away match,[6][7] and some days later, on 26 September, did the same in a UEFA Cup first round match against Lierse SK, with his team qualifying for the next round;[8] he enjoyed an impressive run in his first season, ending it as the club's top scorer with 26 goals in all competitions,[9] and the Ligue 1's second leading scorer with 20.

In the 2001–02 season, Pauleta was the league's top scorer with 22 goals. He also was the club's leading scorer in all competitions with 35 goals – a record.[10] Subsequently, he was voted the best player in the French first division, and was also awarded the 'Oscar of football' by fellow players and coaches,[11] and was named one of the 50 players shortlisted for the 2002 European Footballer of the Year award (Ballon d'Or), with only another player from the French League in the list.[12] In the same season, Pauleta also won the French League Cup, being instrumental to the success scoring two goals in the final.[13][14] After his great performances, Manchester City's manager Kevin Keegan expressed an interest in the striker, but Bordeaux's chairman Jean-Louis Triaud said that, initially, they were not interested in the transfer, showing that Pauleta could be for sale only in the right circumstances.[15]

In the 2002–03 campaign Pauleta proved himself another time, scoring 23 league goals and 30 in all competitions. For the second time he won the title for the best player in the first level, and was also named in the French League team of the year. In total, he registered 65 league goals in 98 games and 91 in 130 matches in all competitions for Bordeaux,[16] ranking third all-time upon his departure.[17]

Paris Saint-Germain[edit]

Pauleta with PSG in 2007

Pauleta joined Paris Saint-Germain F.C. ahead of the 2003–04 season, signing a three-year contract in a reported 12 million transfer deal.[18] He helped the capital side to its first silverware in six years, by scoring the only goal of the 2004 French Cup final against LB Châteauroux, and continued with his goal scoring exploits in the league, registering 18 goals in 37 games as PSG finished the league in second place.

On 2 April 2006, Pauleta scored his first hat-trick for Paris Saint-Germain against former club Bordeaux, as the home side won 3–1.[19] Despite reported interest from defending French champions Olympique Lyonnais, Pauleta stayed at Paris-Saint Germain to help them clinch the 2006 French Cup. He scored his 99th and 100th overall goals for PSG in heroic fashion, off a fantastic volley and a textbook header respectively.[20]

After 2007–08, as PSG faced relegation until the very last matchday (eventually reaching safety at 16th), Pauleta retired from football after his last match on 17 May 2008, with the possible exception being if any of the Big three (S.L. Benfica, Sporting Clube de Portugal and F.C. Porto) in Portugal came calling, which they did not.[21] He retired at 35 without having played one game in Portugal's top flight, subsequently staying at PSG, now in an ambassadorial role.[22]

In late May 2009, Pauleta played his farewell match, at the Parc des Princes, playing one half each with a team of friends and PSG – former and current – players. His son André, 13, replaced him at the end of the game, netting the final two goals.[23]

Pauleta returned to football at the age of 37, joining amateurs Grupo Desportivo São Roque, in the Azores' regional leagues. He retired for good in June 2011.

International career[edit]

Pauleta was the first national team player to never have played in the Portuguese first division when he made his international debut against Armenia, in August 1997. He would have to wait 18 months for his first national team start, against the Netherlands. His first goals came a month later, when he scored two in a 7–0 rout of Azerbaijan in a UEFA Euro 2000 qualifier, on 26 March 1999.

A substitute at the Euro 2000 tournament, he led the Portuguese attack at the 2002 FIFA World Cup, scoring a hat-trick against Poland,[24] ending with that tally in as many games, as the national team was ousted in the group stage.

Although he played all but one game on the road to the Euro 2004 final, Pauleta did not score in that tournament finals. However, on 12 October 2005, against Latvia, he became the national team's all-time goal scoring leader, surpassing Eusébio's previous record of 41 goals.[25]

During the 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign, Pauleta was the European zone's top scorer and, in a friendly match against Cape Verde in May 2006, preluding the final stages, he showed great form as he netted three times, in a 4–1 win. However, after scoring the first national side goal in the group stage match against Angola,[26] he failed to find the net again during the tournament. After Portugal's defeat to Germany in the third place play-off game, Pauleta announced his international retirement.
