  • Profile: Fabio Ferreira

Fabio Ferreira has become one of the more popular players at Adelaide United, with his pace and ability to attack making the winger a favourite with the club and its fans.

His penchant for controlling the ball out wide and delivering to dangerous positions is one of the key factors in Unitedís ability to cut through opposition defences and score goals.

Ferreira started his career as a junior in his native Portugal for Sporting CP before being snapped up by Chelseaís youth programme as a 17-year old in 2006.

After little opportunity at Chelsea, Ferreira headed back to his home country before in 2009 for stints at Esmoriz and Sertanense, before the opportunity to play down under came from Dulwich Hill in the NSW Super League in 2012.

Ferreira scored twice on debut for Dulwich and impressed enough in his first few games to be offered a trial by Adelaide United, who subsequently signed him in August on a one-year deal.

Ferreira settled in quickly, scoring his first goal against Sydney FC on November 23 and becoming one his teamís more valuable players.

The Reds obviously liked what they saw in the Portuguese winger because they signed him to a two year contract extension in December 2012.
