Club career

Early years / Spain

Born in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island in the Azores, Pauleta started his career with local clubs in his native region, before turning professional in the lower leagues He was part of FC Porto's youth team for a brief stint yet left soon due to homesickness, signing his first professional contract with Clube União Micaelense in 1994 and spending one year there He then moved to second division's GD Estoril Praia in 1995, helping them to the 12th position in his first and only season

The goals continued to flow following a switch to Spanish second level side UD Salamanca in 1996, with Pauleta scoring 19 goals as it gained promotion to La Liga in the following year, adding a further 15 in his first season in the top flight That rate earned him a move to Deportivo de La Coruña, in the 1998 summer

Pauleta scored his first goal in European competition in the 1999–2000 UEFA Cup, netting in a 3–1 home win against Montpellier HSC and repeating the feat in the second leg 2–0 On 22 November 1999 he netted a hat-trick for Depor in a home fixture against Sevilla FC, going on to enjoy a two-year spell with the Galicians which included 33 goals in 92 official matches, including eight from 12 starts as the club won its first league championship title in 2000

Bordeaux

On 1 September 2000, after being tracked by the likes of Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Sunderland, Pauleta joined FC Girondins de Bordeaux in France, reportedly for financial and family reasons He scored three as his new club crushed FC Nantes 5–0 in an away match, and some days later, on 26 September, did the same in a UEFA Cup first round match against Lierse SK, with his team qualifying for the next round; he enjoyed an impressive run in his first season, ending it as team top scorer with 26 goals in all competitions, and the Ligue 1's second leading scorer with 20

In the 2001–02 campaign, Pauleta was the league's top scorer with 22 goals He also led the team charts in all competitions with 35 successful strikes – a record Subsequently, he was voted the best player in the French League and was also awarded the 'Oscar of football' by fellow players and coaches, and was named one of the 50 players shortlisted for the 2002 European Footballer of the Year award Ballon d'Or, with only another player from the French League in the list; additionally, he won the French League Cup, being instrumental to the success by netting twice in the final After these performances, Manchester City's manager Kevin Keegan expressed an interest in the striker, but Bordeaux's chairman Jean-Louis Triaud said that, initially, they were not interested in the transfer, showing that he could be for sale only in the right circumstances

In 2002–03, Pauleta proved himself another time, scoring 23 league goals and 30 overall For the second time he won the title for the best player in the league, and was also named in its team of the year In total, he registered 65 league goals in 98 games and 91 in 130 matches in all competitions for Bordeaux, ranking third all-time upon his departure

Paris Saint-Germain

Pauleta joined Paris Saint-Germain FC ahead of the 2003–04 season, signing a three-year contract in a reported €12 million transfer deal He helped the capital side to its first silverware in six years by scoring the only goal of the 2004 French Cup final against LB Châteauroux, and continued with his goal scoring exploits in the league, netting 18 times in 37 contests as they finished the league in second place

On 2 April 2006, Pauleta scored his first hat-trick for Paris Saint-Germain against former club Bordeaux, as the hosts won 3–1 Despite reported interest from defending champions Olympique Lyonnais, he stayed put to help clinch the 2006 French Cup; he netted his 99th and 100th overall goals for the side in heroic fashion, off a fantastic volley and a textbook header respectively

After the 2007–08 campaign, as PSG faced relegation until the very last matchday eventually reaching safety at 16th, Pauleta retired from football after his last match on 17 May 2008, with the possible exception being if any of the Big three SL Benfica, Sporting Clube de Portugal and Porto in Portugal came calling, which they did not He retired at 35 without having played one game in Portugal's Primeira Liga, subsequently staying at PSG but in an ambassadorial role; he remained the club's top scorer of all time with 109 goals in 211 matches, until the record was broken by Zlatan Ibrahimović in October 2015

In late May 2009, Pauleta played his farewell match at the Parc des Princes, playing one half each with a team of friends and PSG – former and current – players His son André, 13, replaced him at the end of the game and scored the final two goals

Pauleta returned to football at the age of 37, joining amateurs Grupo Desportivo São Roque in the Azores' regional leagues He retired for good in June 2011

Although he played all but one game on the road to the final of Euro 2004, Pauleta did not score in that tournament finals After the competition, with the international retirements of Fernando Couto, Luís Figo and Rui Costa, he was made captain, a role he held until Figo's return; however, he sporadically played as skipper in the latter's absence, including a 2–0 win over Egypt at the Estádio de São Miguel in his hometown on 17 August 2005 On 12 October, against Latvia, he netted twice to become the national team's all-time goal scoring leader, surpassing Eusébio's previous record of 41
