Vítor Tiago de Freitas Fernandes (born 11 February 1986), commonly known as Vitinha, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Bulgarian club PFC Ludogorets Razgrad as a left back.

He has spent his entire professional career in Romania and Bulgaria, mainly at the service of Ludogorets in the latter case.

Club career[edit]

Born in São Torcato, Guimarães, Vitinha only played lower league football in his homeland. In January 2007 he signed with Romanian club CFR Cluj, and in the ensuing summer he started a series of loans in the latter country, representing in quick succession CS Otopeni (two spells), FC Unirea Alba Iulia and CS Concordia Chiajna; he appeared for all the teams in Liga I, scoring two goals in 44 combined games.[1][2][3]

In the 2012 winter transfer window, Vitinha joined PFC Ludogorets Razgrad in the First Professional Football League (Bulgaria). He made his competitive debut on 3 March, coming on as a late substitute in a 3–0 home win against PFC Beroe Stara Zagora.[4]

Vitinha was second-choice left-back as the Eagles won five consecutive national championships starting in 2012, playing understudy mainly to veteran Yordan Minev.[5] His maiden appearance in the UEFA Champions League took place on 6 August 2013, as he played five minutes in a 1–0 away win over FK Partizan for the third qualifying round.[6]
