Fábio Alexandre da Silva Coentrão (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈfabju kwẽˈtɾɐ̃w̃]; born 11 March 1988) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team. Mainly a left back he can also operate as a left winger,[1][2] and occasionally as a defensive midfielder.

After starting playing professionally with Rio Ave, he signed for Benfica at 19, going on to be loaned several times before becoming an important member of the first team, as a left-back. In 2011, he joined Real Madrid.

A Portuguese international since 2009, Coentrão represented the nation in two World Cups and one European Championship.

Club career[edit]

Rio Ave[edit]

Born in Vila do Conde, Coentrão joined hometown's Rio Ave F.C. in 2004 at the age of 16, playing three Primeira Liga games in the following season for a northern side that would be relegated.[3] In 2006–07 he established himself as first-choice, as Rio Ave barely missed promotion back and had a good run in the Taça de Portugal, ended by Sporting CP with a 2–1 win in Lisbon;[4] whilst playing for the club, he earned the nickname "Figo das Caxinas".[5]

After that season, where he was voted the divisions' Breakthrough Player of the Year,[6] many clubs showed interest in Coentrão, most notably Sporting and S.L. Benfica, with him choosing the latter in July 2007. His playing style was likened to that of Arjen Robben by World Soccer Magazine, in its 50 World Talents 2007 issue.

Benfica[edit]

On 1 January 2008, having received insignificant playing opportunities at Benfica, Coentrão joined Madeira's C.D. Nacional on loan until the end of the season.[7] On 3 May, he scored twice in a 3–0 away success against already crowned league champions FC Porto.[8]

In the summer of 2008, Coentrão transferred to Real Zaragoza, freshly relegated into Spain's Segunda División.[9] After almost no appearances during the campaign, however,[10] he returned to Portugal and Rio Ave in January 2009, still owned by Benfica;[11] on 15 February he scored after an individual effort, albeit in a 1–3 loss at Porto.[12]

In late October 2009, Coentrão extended his contract with Benfica until 2015, with a release clause of €30 million.[13] On 2 December, having played some matches for Benfica as a left back, he scored his first goal in European competition, against FC BATE Borisov of Belarus in a 2–1 away win for the UEFA Europa League group stage.[14]

On 10 February 2010, Benfica sold 20% of Coentrão's economic rights on any future transfer to a third party owner, Benfica Stars Fund, along with other teammates. He was tagged at €15 million, with the fund paying €3 million.[15] During that season, he had a breakthrough year, appearing in a total of 43 official games (2,851 minutes), as the club won the league and the Portuguese League Cup; he ended the season in style, as he was voted Portuguese League Breakthrough Player of the Year.[16]

On 27 September 2010, fully established with both his club and the national team, 22-year-old Coentrão extended his contract with Benfica until 2016.[17][18] On 2 November he scored his first career brace, helping to a 4–3 home win over Olympique Lyonnais for the season's UEFA Champions League group stage – in a 67-minute fast break, he combined with Carlos Martins to make it 4–0 for the hosts.[19]

Real Madrid[edit]

On 5 July 2011, after extensive negotiations, Benfica and Real Madrid reached an agreement in principle over the transfer of Coentrão, who signed a six-year contract the same day for €30 million[20][21]Ezequiel Garay went in the other direction as part of the deal.[22] He made his debut in a pre-season friendly against the Los Angeles Galaxy on the 16th, creating an assist for Karim Benzema.[23] His first two official games were against FC Barcelona for the Supercopa de España: in the first leg, he came on as a substitute for Sami Khedira in the second half of a 2–2 home draw and played as a defensive midfielder, and he started as left back in the second match, a 2–3 loss at the Camp Nou.[24]

Coentrão made his La Liga debut on 28 August 2011 against former club Zaragoza, appearing as a central midfielder in a 6–0 away win (90 minutes played).[25] While he featured mostly in these positions, he was also deployed by manager José Mourinho as a right back, against Sporting de Gijón on 3 December[26] and against Barcelona the following week,[27] winning the league in his first year.

In the last minutes of the second matchday in the 2012–13 season, Coentrão was sent off after insulting referee Pérez Lasa whilst on the substitutes bench, in an eventual 1–2 loss at Getafe CF. He subsequently received a four-match ban.[28]

Coentrão scored his first goal with Real Madrid on 16 December 2012, netting after a Cristiano Ronaldo pass to help the hosts come from behind against RCD Espanyol, as the game eventually ended 2–2.[29] On 2 September of the following year, Manchester United launched a late loan bid for him on transfer deadline day. It was accepted by the Spaniards, but the deal fell through when they failed to secure a replacement in Guilherme Siqueira from Granada CF, who subsequently joined Benfica on loan.[30]

Coentrão started the play that led to Gareth Bale's individual effort for the 2–1 winner in the final of the Copa del Rey against Barcelona.[31] He also started both legs of the Champions League semi-final against holders FC Bayern Munich as Real Madrid dismantled the opposition 5–0 on aggregate en route to their tenth European title, La Décima.[32]

Still under manager Carlo Ancelotti, Coentrão was sparingly played in the 2014–15 campaign mainly due to injuries,[33] with only five league starts out of nine appearances. On 26 August 2015, it was announced he was loaned to AS Monaco FC in a season-long move.[34][35] He made his competitive debut against Gazélec Ajaccio on 13 September, replacing Adama Traoré in an eventual 1–0 away win,[36] and scored his first goal for his new team 11 days later to help the visitors come from behind at Montpellier HSC to win it 3–2.[37]

As Madrid won the league championship in 2016–17,[38][39] in which Coentrão contributed with just three appearances.[40][41] He himself admitted not being fit enough to represent the club;[42] in the season's Champions League he appeared in two group stage games,[43][44] and his team won the competition for the second consecutive time.[45]

On 5 July 2017, Coentrão was loaned to Sporting in a season-long move,[46][47] despite having stated that in Portugal he would only play for Benfica.[48][49]

International career[edit]

An international for Portugal at youth level,[50] Coentrão was voted MVP in the 2007 Madeira Cup for the under-20 team,[51] also being crowned the competition's top scorer. Subsequently, he represented the nation in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup[52] and, also during that year, made his under-21 debuts.

After consistent performances at Benfica, although he started rarely in the early 2009–10, Coentrão earned his first senior call-up in November 2009, for the decisive 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification playoffs against Bosnia and Herzegovina, and made his debut in the first leg on 14 November at the Estádio da Luz, playing 21 minutes in the 1–0 win.[53]

Coentrão was chosen for Carlos Queiroz's squad of 23 for the final stages, starting as left-back ahead of another adapted player, Duda. He played in all the matches in South Africa, in an eventual round-of-16 exit.[54]

On 10 August 2011, Coentrão scored his first international goal, netting through a rare header in a 5–0 win over Luxembourg.[55] He played all the games and minutes at UEFA Euro 2012, acting as left-back for the semi-finalists.[56]

Coentrão suffered an injury in the second half of Portugal's first game at the 2014 World Cup, against Germany,[57] and was ruled out for the remainder of the tournament.[58] He played a key role in a 2–1 home win over Serbia on 29 March 2015, which put them top of the Euro 2016 qualifying group, crossing for the opening goal by a Ricardo Carvalho header and then scoring the winner from João Moutinho's pass.[59]

Coentrão missed Euro 2016, which Portugal won, due to a thigh injury, contracted in training with Monaco.[60] He returned to action after 697 days for a 2018 World Cup qualifier against Hungary,[61] but was stretchered off in the first half of an eventual 1–0 win in Budapest.[62]

Coentrão was named in a preliminary 35-man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia,[63] but he did not make the final cut.[64]
