Bruno Alexandre Marques Pereirinha (born 2 March 1988) is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Brazilian club Clube Atlético Paranaense. He plays mainly as a right midfielder, also being able to operate as an attacking right back.

He spent most of his professional career with Sporting, appearing in 143 official games over the course of five seasons (five goals scored) and winning three major titles, including two Portuguese Cups.

All youth categories comprised, Pereirinha won 52 caps for Portugal, including 23 for the under-21s.

Club career[edit]

Sporting[edit]

Born in Rio de Mouro, Lisbon, Pereirinha made his professional debuts for Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2006–07, having started that same season on loan at second division's C.D. Olivais e Moscavide,[1] as Miguel Veloso before him. His first appearance for the main squad came on 13 January 2007, playing 20 minutes of a 0–0 away draw against C.F. Os Belenenses, the club where he spent most of his youth career.

On 13 March 2008, in the campaign's UEFA Cup round-of-16 second leg against Bolton Wanderers, Pereirinha scored an 85th-minute goal that gave Sporting a 1–0 home victory and a spot in the quarter-finals.[2] He had also netted in the previous round, against FC Basel.[3]

In the following years, Pereirinha continued to be regularly used, but almost exclusively from the bench. On 21 March 2009, in a rare start, he opened the score against Lisbon neighbours S.L. Benfica in the season's Portuguese League Cup, but the Lions eventually lost on penalties after 1–1 in regulation time.[4]

On 22 June 2010, being deemed surplus to requirements at Sporting, 22-year-old Pereirinha was loaned to fellow Primeira Liga side Vitória de Guimarães, initially in a season-long move. In early January 2011, however, in the same predicament, he moved to Kavala F.C. in Greece.

Lazio[edit]

In 2012–13, Pereirinha was completely ostracized by all four Sporting managers – as several other Portuguese players – also being demoted to the B-team in the second level.[5] Subsequently, he cut ties with the club and signed shortly after with S.S. Lazio in Italy, for three-and-a-half years.[6]

On 15 July 2015, Pereirinha left the Romans after buying out his contract.[7]

Atlético Paranaense[edit]

On 15 July 2015, Pereirinha signed a two-year deal with Clube Atlético Paranaense.[8] He made his debut ten days later, as a 76th-minute substitute for Eduardo in a 2–1 Série A win at Avaí FC; on 15 October, after only one minute on the pitch, he scored his first goal for his new team to put them back ahead in an eventual 2–2 draw against Cruzeiro Esporte Clube at the Arena da Baixada.[9]

International career[edit]

In 2007, aged 19, Pereirinha broke into the Portugal under-21 side, also representing the nation in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup held in Canada.[10] On 25 March 2009 he, alongside teammate Rui Pedro, was suspended by under-21 coach Carlos Queiroz after both attempted an unsuccessful backpass penalty during a match against Cape Verde for the Madeira International Tournament (the score was then at 2–0 for the hosts).[11]

Personal life[edit]

Pererinha's father, Joaquim, was also a footballer. A defender, he represented among others Benfica and S.C. Farense.[12][13]
