[edit] Background

Anderson Luís de Souza though more commonly known as Deco is a footballer who plays for English Premier League club Chelsea as well as the national team Portugal.

[edit] History

Deco started his career at Nacional as a youth player before being snapped up by Corinthians. Only having played a few games for them he then moved to Benfica. During his time here he went on loan to both Alverca and Salgueiros for where he started to get more first team action. Soon after returning the to Benfica he was snapped up by local rivals FC Porto for where he made his name as a European maestro as he made his name on the biggest stage including the Champions League final where he won the title in José Mourinho's 2004 winning side. This success and Mourinho's departed sore Deco move onto Spanish Giants Barcelona where he evidently won this title again as well as La Liga and additional titles. Deco later on moved to Chelsea for where he has never really settled and now has been linked to a move back to Brazil in recent weeks.
