Football career[edit]

Early years / Portugal[edit]

Born in Mineiros, Goiás, Bonfim started professionally with Grêmio Esportivo Inhumense. In January 2002 he signed a five-year contract but, after just five games for the first team, he was successively loaned to Portuguese clubs: S.L. Benfica, C.F. Estrela da Amadora, S.C. Braga[1] and Vitória de Setúbal.

In 2005, Éder joined another Primeira Liga side, U.D. Leiria, being first-choice for the duration of his spell.


In the summer of 2008, Bonfim signed with FC Timişoara. In January of the following year, he had a brief loan spell with fellow Liga I team FC Gloria Buzău; upon his return, he became a first-team regular.

Subsequently, Éder moved to country giants FC Steaua Bucureşti. On 16 August 2010 he made his league debut for the capital side, against FC Victoria Brăneşti.

On 4 May 2011, Éder terminated contract with Steaua by mutual agreement.[2] He left his following club, FK Khazar Lankaran in Azerbaijan, on 26 July 2013, following a 0–8 home defeat to Maccabi Haifa F.C. for the season's UEFA Europa League.[3]
