Antônio Cleilson da Silva Feitosa, commonly known as Amaral (born 5 September 1987), is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a right back for Portuguesa.

Club career[edit]

Amaral is a talented side back who can attack from either side of the pitch. He is known for his ability to score in addition to his crossing skills. The young player was signed by Série A side SE Palmeiras after some stunning performances for Fortaleza EC. Amaral featured on a regular basis for Palmeiras' first-team squad.

After a decline in productivity, he fell out of favor with then-coach Caio Junior and was loaned out to SC Corinthians Paulista and Atlético Mineiro, until securing a loan deal with the Segunda División side Las Palmas.

Amaral owes his nickname to his physical likeness with the seasoned Brazilian midfielder Alexandre da Silva Mariano.[1]

Amaral was capped at the U17 and U20 levels for Brazil.
