Bruno Cortês Barbosa (born 11 March 1987), known as Bruno Cortez or simply Cortez, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Grêmio as a left back.

Cortez changed his surname spelling from Cortês to Cortez, without circumflex diacritic and with a final z ending after being asked to do so by the Nova Iguaçu club president.[1] After leaving his youth club, Cortez decided to keep the spelling as an artistic name.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Rio de Janeiro,[2] he began his career as a forward in 2006, as part of Arturzinho's squad.[3] He was loaned to Paysandu in 2007, when he played a single game, against Tuna Luso in the Campeonato Paraense.[3]

Cortez first professional contract was with Qatari club Al-Shahaniya in 2007.[2] He moved back to his home country to play for Rio de Janeiro state-based club Castelo Branco from 2008 to 2009,.[4] He left the club to defend Quissamã, also from Rio de Janeiro state, for the 2009 and 2010 seasons.[2] He joined Nova Iguaçu in 2011, playing 14 Campeonato Carioca games for the club during that season.[5] In March of the same year, Nova Iguaçu received a bid from Remo for the defender, but rejected the offer.[3]

Botafogo[edit]

Rio de Janeiro city-based club Botafogo acquired 50% of his economic rights after the conclusion of the Campeonato Carioca.[6] He played 28 Série A games for the club during the 2011 season.[5] Cortez played his first game for the club on 22 May 2011, at Estádio Benedito Teixeira, in São José do Rio Preto, on a 2-0 defeat against Palmeiras.[7] He played his last match for Botafogo on 4 December 2011, on a 1-1 tie against Fluminense at Estádio Raulino de Oliveira, in Volta Redonda, for the last round of the Série A.[8][9]

São Paulo[edit]

Cortez transfer to Série A club São Paulo was announced on 17 December 2011,[6] with the contract being signed four days later.[10][11] He played his first game for the Tricolor on 22 January 2012, in a 4-0 victory against Botafogo-SP at the Estádio do Morumbi, for the Campeonato Paulista championship.[12] He scored his first goal for São Paulo on 23 May 2012, against Goiás, at the Estádio Serra Dourada, for the year's Copa do Brasil.[13]

In May 2013, after São Paulo knock-off from both the State League and Copa Libertadores, Cortez was removed from the club's roster by president Juvenal Juvêncio and manager Ney Franco and, alongside 4 other players, transfer-listed.[14]

Benfica (loan)[edit]

São Paulo loaned Cortez to Portuguese Primeira Liga side Benfica for a year in July 2013.[15] Arriving at the Portuguese side, he stated that playing in Europe was his opportunity to earn a spot back at the Brazilian squad, and end his two-year absence.[16]

Falling out of favour at Jorge Jesus' squad, Cortez ended his loan spell on 11 January 2014, and returned to São Paulo. Cortez was reported stating "I'll be eternally thankful to the Portuguese club for everything that they did for me and to Jorge Jesus for the opportunity. It didn't work out due to things that happen in football, but I'm positive that I left with an open door."[17]

Criciúma (loan)[edit]

São Paulo loaned Cortez again, this time to Criciúma in April 2014 for the duration of the 2014 season.[18]

Albirex Niigata (loan)[edit]

On 20 January 2015, Cortez signed a two-year loan deal with Albirex Niigata.[19][20]

Grêmio[edit]

After two years playing in Japan, Cortez came back to Brazil in 2017 and discusses his contractual rescission with São Paulo. At this moment, Cortez prioritize to play in his home country.[21] He joined Grêmio shortly after cutting ties with São Paulo.

International career[edit]

Cortez was called up for the Brazil national football team to compete against Argentina in both Superclásico das Américas matches, and was capped for the first time in the 2-0 Brazil victory on 14 September 2011 at the Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes in Córdoba.[22] He also appeared in the second leg on 28 September at the Mangueirão in Belém.[23]
