Frederico André Ferrão Venâncio (born 4 February 1993) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Vitória S.C. as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Born in Gâmbia – Pontes – Alto da Guerra, Setúbal, Venâncio joined local Vitória FC's youth academy at the age of 9, then returned for his last year as a junior from S.L. Benfica. He made his Primeira Liga debut for the former club on 13 January 2013, coming on as a late substitute in a 5–0 home win against Moreirense FC.[1] He scored his first league goal on 7 April of the same year, but in a 1–2 away loss to Rio Ave FC.[2]

On 16 August 2017, Venâncio signed with English Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on a season-long loan.[3] He made his league debut on 23 December, playing the full 90 minutes in the 1–2 home defeat against Middlesbrough.[4]

Venâncio scored his first and only goal for Wednesday on 6 May 2018, helping the hosts defeat Norwich City 5–1.[5]

International career[edit]

Venâncio earned the first of his two caps for the Portugal under-21 team on 25 March 2013, featuring the last minutes of the 2–1 friendly defeat of the Republic of Ireland in Dundalk.[6] He was part of the squad at the 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship,[7] being an unused squad member for the runners-up.

Personal life[edit]

Venâncio's father, Pedro, was also a footballer and a central defender. He too was brought up at Vitória.[8][9]
