Edson André Sitoe (born 8 September 1988), known as Mexer, is a Mozambican professional footballer who plays for French club FC Girondins de Bordeaux and the Mozambique national team as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Portugal[edit]

Born in Maputo, Mexer began his career with Grupo Desportivo de Maputo. In January 2010 he moved to Portugal, joining Sporting CP for a fee of 173,000 and agreeing a ​2 12-year contract with the option of a further three.[2][3][4]

On 24 February 2010, Mexer made his debut with a Sporting jersey in a reserve team match against C.F. Os Belenenses, for Liga Intercalar.[5] In August, 50% interests on any future transfer revenue received by Sporting were sold to Traffic Group for €87,000,[2] and he spent the 2010–11 season on loan to fellow Primeira Liga side S.C. Olhanense, making his competition debut on 11 September 2010 and playing six minutes in a 0–0 draw at precisely Sporting.[6]

Mexer also played the 2011–12 campaign with the Algarve club, still owned by the Lions,[7] and only missed six league matches as his team again managed to retain their top level status. In May 2012, he moved to C.D. Nacional also in the Portuguese top tier on a four-year deal.[8]

Rennes[edit]

On 19 June 2014, after a failed transfer to the French club in January, Mexer signed with Stade Rennais FC.[9] In only his second appearance in Ligue 1, on 16 August, he contributed with two goals in a 6–2 home win over Evian Thonon Gaillard FC.[10]

On 27 April 2019, Mexer played the full 120 minutes and scored the 2–2 equaliser against Paris Saint-Germain F.C. in the final of the Coupe de France, helping his team win the competition for the third time in their 118-year history after being down 2–0.[11]

Bordeaux[edit]

On 9 May 2019, Mexer signed a four-year contract with FC Girondins de Bordeaux also of the French top division.[12]

International career[edit]

Mexer made his debut for Mozambique in 2007, and represented the nation at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations.[13]
