Arthur Henrique Bernhardt (born 27 August 1982), known simply as Arthuro, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a centre forward.

He also holds an Italian passport.

Football career[edit]

Arthuro was born in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina. After a brief youth spell in Germany with Hamburger SV, he returned to his country to start his professional career, with lowly Criciúma Esporte Clube. The following year, aged just 18, he moved abroad again, spending three years without any first-team appearances for Middlesbrough.

Next stop was Spain, and Arthuro also struggled initially: he only appeared seven times with Racing de Santander's reserves in the third division but fared better in the following years, successively with Sporting de Gijón, Deportivo Alavés and Córdoba CF – he also appeared in six scoreless games with the Basque in 2005–06's La Liga, with relegation.

Released by Alavés in June 2008, Arthuro played in Romania with FC Steaua Bucureşti until January of the following year,[1] when he transferred to Russian club FC Terek Grozny. Again in quick succession he moved teams again, signing in May with Clube de Regatas do Flamengo.

Arthuro represented his fourth side in one year when he signed with Celta de Vigo, also from the Spanish second level. However, in early January 2010, both parties agreed to terminate his contract after poor performances overall (he failed to score a single official goal) and failure to adjust to the city;[2] he immediately found a new club, joining Al Dhafra S.C.C. in the United Arab Emirates.

Late in 2010, Arthuro moved to Portugal and joined U.D. Leiria, but quickly returned to his homeland and signed for Avaí Futebol Clube. After only a couple of matches he changed teams and countries again, joining Johor Darul Takzim F.C. in Malaysia.[3][4]
