Roderick Jefferson Gonçalves Miranda (born 30 March 1991), known simply as Roderick, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for English club Wolverhampton Wanderers as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Benfica[edit]

Born in Odivelas, Roderick arrived in S.L. Benfica's youth academy in 2000 (aged nine), from Lisbon neighbours Odivelas FC. He was promoted to the first team nine years later after having played in all the youth ranks of the Primeira Liga giants, and appeared in some pre-season and Taça da Liga matches in his debut campaign.

For 2011–12, Roderick was loaned to Servette FC in Switzerland – coached by former Benfica player João Alves – in a season-long move.[1] On 31 July 2012 he joined Deportivo de La Coruña in La Liga, in the same situation; he returned to the Estádio da Luz in the following transfer window, however.[2]

Rio Ave[edit]

Roderick was definitely released by Benfica in August 2013, signing a five-year deal with Rio Ave FC.[3] He scored three goals in 33 games in his fourth season,[4][5][6] helping to a seventh-place finish.

Wolves[edit]

On 13 June 2017, Roderick joined English Championship team Wolverhampton Wanderers on a four-year contract, for an undisclosed fee.[7] He made his debut on 5 August, playing the entire 1–0 home win against Middlesbrough.[8]

International career[edit]

Of Brazilian descent,[9] Roderick chose to represent Portugal internationally and went on to win 45 caps all youth categories comprised. He represented the under-20 team at the 2011 FIFA World Cup in Colombia, often partnering Sporting Clube de Portugal's Nuno Reis in an eventual runner-up finish.[10]
