Paulo Roberto da Costa Regula (born 12 March 1989 in Sarilhos Pequenos, Setúbal District) is a Portuguese footballer who plays as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

After beginning to play football with Sporting Clube de Portugal, Regula moved to Vitória F.C. in 2002 at the age of 13, where he completed his formation. In the 2008–09 season he began to receive callups to the main squad, making his debut in the Primeira Liga on 24 January 2009, coming on as a 62nd-minute substitute in a 0–1 home loss against Associação Naval 1º de Maio.[1]

Regula repeated individual numbers in the 2009–10 campaign, again appearing in 11 league games but managing to score once – in a 3–5 loss at F.C. Paços de Ferreira[2]– as the Sadinos again retained their division status. On 11 November 2010 he suffered a serious injury to his fibula in a match against U.D. Leiria and, on 30 June 2011, as his contract expired, was released by the club.[3][4]

After becoming a free agent, Regula was set to complete a transfer to Calcio Catania in Italy, with the move even being announced on 14 July 2011.[5][6] However, shortly after the transfer collapsed, and he signed for S.C. Olhanense the following month.

Regula was loaned to Segunda Liga team Associação Naval 1º de Maio for 2012–13.[7] In February 2015, still owned by Olhanense, he joined PFC Litex Lovech from Bulgaria.[8]
