Carlos Manuel Costa Fernandes Fonseca (born 23 August 1987) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Kazakh club FC Irtysh Pavlodar as a winger.

Football career[edit]

Born in Galegos (São Martinho), Barcelos, Fonseca played in every level of Portuguese football, with the exception of the fourth division. He started with Santa Maria F.C. in the regional leagues, then moved straight to the third level with F.C. Tirsense.

In the 2009 summer, Fonseca signed with fellow league club C.D. Feirense, achieving two consecutive promotions in his two first years and scoring six goals combined in the process. He made his debut in the Primeira Liga on 14 August 2011, starting and being sent off at the hour-mark of a 0–0 home draw against C.D. Nacional.[1]

On 15 July 2013, Fonseca joined Bulgarian side PSFC Chernomorets Burgas after a successful one-week trial.[2] In January 2016, he moved from PFC Slavia Sofia[3] to Kazakhstan Premier League's FC Irtysh Pavlodar on a two-year contract after a six-month loan the previous season.[4]
