Pedro Ken Morimoto Moreira, or simply Pedro Ken (born 20 March 1987 in Curitiba) is a Brazilian footballer who last played for FC Terek Grozny in Russia. He is of Japanese descent.



In 2007, when Coritiba won 2nd Division, Pedro Ken, Keirrison and Henrique were called Trio de Ouro (in English: Golden Trio) because of their important role in the championship, young age and good prospects.[1]

On 7 December 2009 Pedro Ken left Coritiba to sign for league rival Cruzeiro.[2] He signed a five-year contract with the club.

On 1 June 2011 Pedro Ken joined Avaí on a season-long loan deal.[3]

On 22 December 2012, on an exchange for Nílton, Cruzeiro loaned Ken for Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama until the end of 2013 season.[4]

In January 2016, Ken went on trial with FC Terek Grozny,[5] going on to sign a 2.5-year contract with Terek on 3 February 2016.[6] He left the club in March 2017.[7]


Pedro played once for the Olympic National Team in a commemorative match against Brasileirão's best players. He did not score in that game.
