Anderson Andrade Antunes (born November 15, 1981 in Brazil) is a Brazilian footballer who currently plays as a striker for Roasso Kumamoto.[1]

Club career

After a short stint playing professionally in Mexico, and a subsequent four-year stint in his native Brazil, Anderson joined Japanese club Mito HollyHock for the 2006 J2 league season. He quickly developed into a fan favorite as he became one of the highest scorers in the division, placing 7th, with the best goal-per-shot ratio in Japanese professional soccer.

Following the conclusion of the 2006 season, he announced on 20 December that he would like to return to play soccer in Brazil for 2007. However, in January 2007, he was signed by Sagan Tosu. After seeing only limited matchplay for the first six months of his contract, on 16 June 2007, he joined Shimizu S-Pulse on loan. The move to Shizuoka was ultimately unsuccessful, and he joined J2 League team Yokohama FC for the 2008 season.[2] The shift to Yokohama proved to be a more productive move than his previous two clubs, and he averaged a goal every two games.

Completing his Japanese contract, Anderson returned to Brazil in the summer of 2009, joining the team of Rio Branco de Andradas.

On 5 July 2009, Egyptian Premier League club El Zamalek officially announced the signing of a 3-year contract with Anderson. However, El Zamalek later canceled the deal without Anderson ever stepping foot on the football pitch in a competitive match for the club. The cancellation was put down to Anderson's lack of condition, as he apparently did not appear in good shape to play. In September 2009, Anderson moved to Brujas FC of Costa Rica, where he would score eight goals in nine league matches.[3]

Anderson has since moved to K-League club Daegu FC, in South Korea. He scored his first goal for them on 28 March, in a 2-1 win over Daejeon Citizen, and went on to play eight league matches, as well as three league cup appearances for the Korean club, before returning his former club Brujas FC during the K-League midseason summer break.

On 2 February 2010, Valletta F.C., a Maltese Premier League team, presented the player as their new purchase, with a contract until the end of the season.

In July 2011, he returned to Costa Rica to join C.S. Herediano. In July 2014, he transferred to Roasso Kumamoto.
