José Manuel Barbosa Alves (born 4 February 1990), known as José Coelho, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Born in Paços de Ferreira, Coelho started his football career at hometown club F.C. Paços de Ferreira, then continued his formation with a further five years at FC Porto.

In 2006, he joined Inter Milan's Allievi Nazionali (under-17).[1][2] He scored three league goals that season, ranking in the team behind Mario Balotelli (18 goals), Mattia Destro (nine) and Samuele Beretta (four)[3] and also netting two of the six in the playoffs round as the club finished second in Group 1 (quarter-final), yet failing to qualify to the final.[4][5][6][7][8]

In July 2007, Coelho was promoted to the Primavera Team,[9] and played at the Champions Youth Cup in the following month.[10] He finished his youth career at S.L. Benfica, staying there two years.

Professional[edit]

In summer 2009 Coelho, owned by Benfica, made his professional debuts at his very first club Paços de Ferreira. His first official match was against another former team, Porto, in the 0–2 defeat for the Portuguese Supercup on 9 August.[11] He made his first appearance in the Primeira Liga 20 days later in a 0–0 home draw against Vitória de Guimarães – on both occasions, he was brought from the bench.[12]

In late July 2010, after only five overall appearances during the season, Coelho was loaned again by Benfica, now to second division's C.D. Fátima. In the following campaign, in the same situation, he joined another club in that level, Atlético Clube de Portugal.[13]

In February 2012, Coelho terminated his contract with Benfica and signed for three years with FC Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.[14] He returned to Portugal in the summer, however, to be close to his father who faced medical problems with two amputated legs;[15] in early January 2013, after six months without a club, he joined second tier side S.C. Freamunde.[16]
