Paulo Jorge Sousa Vieira (born 16 February 1982), known as Alemão ("German"), is a Portuguese retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Football career[edit]

Born in Paris, France, Alemão started his professional career with Sporting Clube de Portugal after emerging through the Lisbon club's youth ranks. He would only, however, appear for the B-side during his spell, meeting the same fate in 2003–04 with C.S. Marítimo – both teams operated in the third division.

In the following two-and-a-half seasons, Alemão stayed in that level, playing for Sport Benfica e Castelo Branco and G.D. Tourizense. In January 2007 he was signed by U.D. Leiria in the Primeira Liga, but only managed to be third-choice during his tenure.

Alemão moved to C.D. Santa Clara from division two for the 2008–09 campaign,[1] starting ahead of longtime incumbent João Botelho. In the following year he had his first experience abroad, leaving for Cypriot Second Division club Atromitos Yeroskipou.[2]
