Evaldo dos Santos Fabiano (born 18 March 1982 in Rio Piracicaba, Minas Gerais), known simply as Evaldo, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club C.D. Cova da Piedade as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Having started out professionally with Clube Atlético Paranaense and Democrata Futebol Clube,[1] Evaldo moved to Europe in 2003, as he was purchased by FC Porto in Portugal. He spent most of his only season with the club's reserves.

In the 2004 summer, Evaldo was involved in a transfer that brought compatriot Pepe from C.S. Marítimo, as he, Antonielton Ferreira and Tonel all went to Madeira. After a shaky start, he would be an undisputed starter in the following years.

Evaldo joined S.C. Braga in the 2008 summer, after four years in Madeira. With no competition in his position, he only missed one Primeira Liga match in his first year, as the Minho side qualified once again for the UEFA Cup.

After helping Braga to its best-ever league finish in the 2009–10 campaign (second), Evaldo joined Sporting Clube de Portugal in the summer of 2010, signing a four-year deal worth 3 million.[2] He made his official club debut on 14 August in a 0–1 away loss against F.C. Paços de Ferreira; on the 26th, he scored a rare goal – and through a header – as the Lions defeated Brøndby IF 3–0 after losing 0–2 at home, thus qualifying for the Europa League's group stage.[3]

On 14 July 2012, Evaldo moved to La Liga club Deportivo de La Coruña in a season-long loan.[4] His first competitive appearance for the Galicians took place on 20 August, as he played the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 home win over CA Osasuna,[5] and appeared in 16 contests all competitions comprised during his spell as the campaign went on to end in relegation.

In July 2014, after one year with Sporting where he was limited to training, Evaldo agreed terms with Gil Vicente FC.[6] The following summer, after suffering top flight relegation, he joined fellow league team Moreirense F.C. on a one-year deal.[7]
