Eduardo Pereira Rodrigues (born 7 January 1992), commonly known as Dudu, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a attacking midfielder and forward for Palmeiras.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Rodrigues began his career on youthside for Cruzeiro Esporte Clube and earned on 14 June 2009 his first cap in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A against Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras.[1] On 27 April 2010 Coritiba Foot Ball Club signed the 18-year-old Attacking midfielder on loan from Cruzeiro until December 2010.[2] Dudu went back to Cruzeiro for the 2011 season. On 25 June in the match against Coritiba Dudu, playing as a suplent, has surprised the coach Joel Santana, who said: "Dudu entered really well in the match. He is such a bold boy, intelligent, he doesn't forget the instructions. He is audacious, even being a little guy. It proves that tallness isn't really important for football. Quality, ability and competence are. He showed he is such a competent player, in spite of his young age." [3]

Dynamo Kyiv[edit]

On 27 August 2011, it was announced on his team Cruzeiro's official homepage that Dudu would join Ukrainian side Dynamo Kyiv on a €5 million offer.[4]

Grêmio[edit]

On 11 February 2014, Dudu was loaned to Grêmio until the end of the Brazilian season, on 31 December 2014.[5]

Palmeiras[edit]

On 11 January 2015 Dudu joined Palmeiras on a four-year contract.[6]
