Club careerEdit

Aloísio was born in Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul. He represented local Sport Club Internacional in his country, helping the Porto Alegre side to three state leagues and the second position in the 1987 edition of the Série A, named Copa União in that year.

In 1988, Aloísio moved to Spain and joined La Liga giants FC Barcelona. Never an undisputed starter whilst in Catalonia, he did feature regularly as the teams before the emergence of the Dream Team won one Copa del Rey – a 2–0 win against Real Madrid[2][3]– and the 1988–89 European Cup Winners' Cup, with the player starting in the final of the latter against U.C. Sampdoria (2–0).[4]

After two seasons with Barça, Aloísio signed for FC Porto in Portugal, where he would remain for the following 11 years until his retirement. With the exception of his final season he never appeared in less than 28 matches in the Primeira Liga, being one of only five club players to win five consecutive national championships.

Aloísio retired from football in June 2001 at nearly 38 years of age, having won seven leagues, five cups and seven supercups with his main club and appearing in more than 400 official matches. Having begun working under him in January 2002,[5] he was part of José Mourinho's coaching staff in the 2003–04 campaign as Porto won both the domestic and the UEFA Champions League; after one more year, now as assistant to Spaniard Víctor Fernández,[6] he was appointed head coach of the reserve team in the third division.[7]

International careerEdit

During 1988, Aloísio earned six caps for Brazil. Also in that year he helped the Olympic team win silver at the Summer Olympic Games, in Seoul.[8]
