Artur

Clubs: Cruzeiro EC, Coritiba FC (loan), AC Siena, AC Cesena (loan), AS Roma, SC Braga, SL Benfica

• Artur came through the youth ranks at Cruzeiro and was a fringe member of the club's Brazilian league and cup-winning side in 2003.

• Spent the 2006 campaign on loan at Coritiba before moving to Italy in January 2008, joining Siena initially but leaving soon afterwards on a half-season loan to Cesena, who would finish bottom of Serie B.

• Became understudy to compatriot Doni at Roma after joining the Giallorossi in June 2008; made his Serie A debut on 8 November versus Bologna FC and, with Doni injured, enjoyed an extended run in the closing weeks of the campaign.

• Made just one Serie A start in 2009/10 and left at the end of the season, joining Braga as a free agent.

• Was back-up to Felipe in the autumn, making his UEFA Champions League debut on Matchday 6 away to FC Shakhtar Donetsk (0-2), but became Braga's No1 in the spring, conceding just four goals in eight matches en route to the UEFA Europa League final.

• Signed a four-year deal with Benfica in May 2011, three days after keeping goal in the UEFA Europa League final.

• Rapidly established himself as first choice at Benfica, helping them to successive second-placed finishes in the the league, and to the final of the UEFA Europa League in 2013.
