Paulo Sérgio Moreira Gonçalves (born 24 January 1984), known as Paulo Sérgio, is a retired Portuguese footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder or right winger.

He amassed Primeira Liga totals of 162 matches and 13 goals over eight seasons, appearing in the competition for Académica, Belenenses, Estrela da Amadora, Aves, Olhanense, Vitória de Guimarães and Arouca. He also competed professionally in Spain, Cyprus, Singapore and Indonesia, winning the S.League with DPMM and repeating the feat in Liga 1 with Bhayangkara and Bali United.

Club career[edit]

Born in Lisbon, Paulo Sérgio started his career at local Sporting CP, but never appeared in the Primeira Liga with the first team. In April 2003, 10% of his economic rights were sold to an investment fund along with other youth products, and he would be loaned several times in the following years, for example spending two seasons with Lisbon neighbours C.F. Os Belenenses; on 25 November 2004, before leaving for the latter club, he appeared for the Lions in a 4–0 win at FC Dinamo Tbilisi for that season's UEFA Cup, coming on as a substitute for Roudolphe Douala in the 65th minute.[1]

After one season with Portimonense S.C. of the second division, Paulo Sérgio was released by Sporting and signed with Spanish side UD Salamanca.[2] He appeared in roughly half of the games during the campaign, as the Castile and León team finished ninth in the second level.

Paulo Sérgio returned to his country and Algarve in summer 2009, joining S.C. Olhanense who had just promoted to the top flight and being regularly played over the course of two seasons as the club managed to consecutively retain its status. On 17 September 2010, he scored in a 2–0 home win against former team Portimonense,[3] the first of two official goals during his tenure.

In the following years, Paulo Sérgio represented, in quick succession, Vitória de Guimarães, Cyprus' AEL Limassol, F.C. Arouca[4] and Olhanense.[5] In March 2015, after spending the first part of the campaign as a free agent, he joined DPMM FC of the S.League, replacing injured Craig Fagan.[6] He scored a brace on his debut on 4 April, helping to a 3–2 win at Hougang United FC.[7]

Paulo Sérgio netted twice in a 4–0 victory against Balestier Khalsa FC in the final league game of 2015, and his team won their first-ever national championship.[8]

International career[edit]

Paulo Sérgio played seven times in the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification, netting four goals. He was not, however, selected for the squad that appeared in the final tournament, which was held on home soil.

Previously, Paulo Sérgio appeared with the under-19s in the 2003 European Championship in Liechtenstein, scoring five times in as many matches as the national team lost in the final against Italy.[9]
