José Fernando Viana de Santana (born 27 March 1987), commonly known as Fernandão, is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a striker for Bahia.

After a journeyman career in his homeland, he had a five-year spell in Turkish football with Bursaspor and Fenerbahçe, totalling 93 games and 49 goals in the Süper Lig. With the former in 2014–15, he was the league's top scorer with 22 goals.

Career[edit]

Brazil[edit]

Fernandão started his career with America-RJ in 2006. In 2008, he was signed by Tombense, a proxy club for the investor. He was loaned to Flamengo in September.

Fernandão played for Volta Redonda in 2009 Campeonato Carioca. In 2010, he left for Macaé Esporte Futebol Clube.

In August 2010 he was signed by Paysandu Sport Club for 2010 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C. In January 2011 he was signed by Democrata de Governador Valadares for 2011 Campeonato Mineiro. He signed a seven-month contract with Guarani on 19 May 2011, but soon departed to Palmeiras, on 26 August 2011.[2] Fernandão's first appearance for Palmeiras came in the derby against Corinthians on 28 August 2011, where he came as a substitute at half time and scored 7 minutes later giving Palmeiras an important 2-1 victory.

Bursaspor[edit]

In January 2014, Fernandão joined Turkish Süper Lig team Bursaspor on loan, and he scored two goals on his debut match against Eskişehirspor which Bursaspor won 3–1 at Bursa Atatürk Stadium.

In the 2014–15 season, he finished the campaign as the league's top scorer with 22 goals.[3] He also netted on 22 May 2015 as Bursaspor came from behind to win their Turkish Cup semi-final against Fenerbahçe at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium.[4] Twelve days later as they hosted the final against league champions Galatasaray, Fernandão opened the scoring after Alex Telles conceded a penalty in the 25th minute, but Bursaspor lost 3–2.[5]

Fenerbahçe[edit]

On 25 June 2015, Fenerbahçe agreed to sign Fernandão on a four-year deal.[6] On 28 July, he made his club debut against Shakhtar Donetsk in a UEFA Champions League qualifying play-off game. His league debut was on 14 August, during which he scored the second goal from the edge of the penalty area in a 2–0 win at Eskişehirspor.[7]

Al-Wehda[edit]

On 12 June 2018, Fernandão signed a two-year deal with Al-Wehda Club of the Saudi Professional League, with the option of a third year. He was brought in by Brazilian manager Fábio Carille, who enlisted several other compatriots into the squad.[8]
