Pedro Alexandre dos Santos Barbosa (born August 6, 1970 in Gondomar; Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈpedɾu bɐɾˈbɔzɐ]) is a former Portuguese professional footballer, best known for his spell at Sporting Clube de Portugal.


Club career

An attacking midfielder with above-average technical skills, Barbosa first came to prominence playing for Vitória de Guimarães, joining Sporting Clube de Portugal in 1995–96, where he spent ten seasons.[1] He contributed heavily to the capital side's 2000 and 2002 league titles.

After retiring in 2005, having netted a career-best nine goals in his penultimate year,[1] Barbosa became Sporting's football director,[2] leaving the post in early November 2009, after coach Paulo Bento's resignation.

International career

Barbosa won 22 caps for the Portugal national team and scored five goals, during 10 years. He represented the nation at UEFA Euro 1996 and the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
