Alison Lopes Ferreira (born 1 March 1993), simply known as Alison, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Red Bull Brasil, on loan from Santos, as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]


Born in Mongaguá, São Paulo, Alison joined Santos FC's youth setup in 2004, aged 11. On 10 September 2011 he made his professional debut, starting in a 1–0 home success over Cruzeiro.[1] However, after only two minutes in field, he had to be replaced due to a knee injury, which kept him sidelined for six months.[2] Alison later suffered the same injury when he was due to return, only appearing in a match in January 2013.[3]

On 16 August 2013, after retaining a starting spot under Claudinei Oliveira, Alison renewed his link with Santos until December 2017.[4] However, he suffered an injury during the latter stages of the campaign, and only returned in March 2014.

On 18 July 2014 Alison scored his first professional goal, netting the first of a 2–0 home win against Palmeiras.[5] In February of the following year, however, he suffered another serious knee injury, being sidelined for eight months.[6][7] He returned to the fields on 29 October, coming on as a late substitute in a 3–1 home win against São Paulo FC.[8]

A backup to Thiago Maia and Renato, Alison only appeared rarely in 2016 before suffering a knee sprain. He went through an arthroscopy in July,[9] being declared fit to play in September.[10]

On 20 January 2017, Alison was loaned to Red Bull Brasil until the end of the 2017 Campeonato Paulista, in order to regain match fitness.[11]
