Aloísio dos Santos Gonçalves or simply Aloísio (born 19 June 1988 in Araranguá) is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Chinese club Hebei China Fortune as a striker.[1]

Club career[edit]

Aloísio signed his first professional contract with Grêmio in June 2006 for five years. The club attached a £7.25 million buy-out clause. Aloísio made his full debut in a 2–0 win for Grêmio against São Caetano on October 14, 2006.

In August 2007, he moved to Swiss second division side FC Chiasso on loan for two seasons.

On May 18, 2011, he joined Brazilian Série A club Figueirense on the back of excellent performances at his former team Chapecoense in the Campeonato Catarinense. He scored 14 goals in 19 matches to lead Chapecoense to the Champions Trophy.

On December 1, 2012 Aloisio confirmed that he had signed a pre-contract with São Paulo FC which came with a release cause in case a big European side came in for him.[2] On December 7 the president of São Paulo FC, Juvenal Juvêncio, confirmed Aloísio would be playing for the team in the 2013 season.[3]

On 10 July 2013, Aloísio scored the 1,000th goal in São Paulo's history in the Brazilian League, playing at home in the 2-1 loss against Bahia. Speaking about the defeat, Aloisio claimed that changing coaches didn't solve the club's problems (referring to Ney Franco's dismissal and Paulo Autuori's signing); thus, he blamed the players, saying that one of them must take responsibility.[4] In the next game, trying to help São Paulo out of their crisis, Aloisio scored a goal with his left hand against Portuguesa de Desportos in a 2-1 loss. According to the forward, after the game, "with willpower I was able to score the goal, I put my hand to the ball."[5] A week later, against CR Flamengo, Aloísio repeated the move. After a cross landed in the penalty area, the number 19 scored another goal with his hand. This time, however, instead of saying about his will to score, Aloísio said: "Lately, the ball has been taken in my hand. It is twice."[6] On October 27, 2013 Aloísio scored his first hat-trick playing for São Paulo FC in a 3-2 league victory against SC Internacional. Boi Bandido was instrumental in the Tricolor earning three points, and in keeping a distance away from the relegation zone.[7]

Even after a hard 2013, in which São Paulo FC only just escaped relegation and did not win any titles, Aloísio became one of the main stars at the club, sharing the goalscoring burden for the club with Luís Fabiano, who between them scored 22 goals. Despite several offers from international clubs, Boi Bandido said that he would not be going anywhere. According to him: "If I need to go away, I'll go very happy. But, for I come out from São Paulo FC, it won't happen in charge of any propose. I passed through several difficulties in Switzerland. Now, I am playing for a big club and I hope to continue here for a long time."[8]

Aloísio joined Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng in January 2014 for a fee of €5 million. He was the top scorer for the 2015 Chinese Super League season with 22 goals in 28 games.

Aloísio joined Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune in July 2016.[9]

Style of play[edit]

Aloísio is known for his strength and bravery. He is not only a goal scorer, but is also a very strong physical player. When he played for Figueirense, Aloisio gained the nickname of Boi Bandido from fans (In English, Bandit Bull is a reference to the most feared rodeo bull in Brazil) because of his will to win and dedication. Aloisio also revealed that he enjoys competing in hard fought games.[10] His will-to-win could be seen when he won a penalty in the 2-0 victory against Atlético Mineiro in the 2013 Copa Libertadores. In a must win game for São Paulo FC to be able advance in the competition, Aloisio celebrated the penalty as if he had scored a goal.[11]
