Aender Naves Mesquita (commonly known as Naves, Chinese: 安達 ; born 12 February 1983 in Barra do Garças, Mato Grosso, Brazil), is a Brazilian-born Hong Kong footballer who currently plays for Hong Kong Premier League club Rangers.
Shum Shui Po
On 28 October 2011, Aender Naves joined Hong Kong First Division League club Sham Shui Po. Although unable to save the team from relegation, he was voted as Most Favorite Player by fans at the Hong Kong Top Footballer Awards.
On 4 May 2013, he scored in the 90th minute against Yokohama FC Hong Kong, changing the scoreboard into 2–1 for Wofoo Tai Po. As Citizen and Sunray Cave JC Sun Hei have won their match respectively, a win was critical for Wofoo Tai Po as 3 points could avoid relegation. However, in the last minute of stoppage time, Yokohama FC Hong Kong's Kenji Fukuda scored and thus sent Wofoo Tai Po into the Second Division.
Naves confirmed his departure following the relegation of Tai Po.
On 31 May 2013, Aender Naves joined First Division defending champions South China for free. He struggled to earn a starting spot in the first half of the season. In December 2013 he was loaned to Biu Chun Rangers for the remainder of the season.
Return to Tai Po
In September 2014 Naves returned to Hong Kong Premier League club Wofoo Tai Po.
