Fábio Aurélio

Fábio Aurélio Rodrigues (born 24 sep. 1979 (40 years ago)) is a Brazilian football player, who currently plays for the English Premier League team Liverpool. He can play at left back or left midfield and is noted for his passing accuracy, crossing ability and curling free-kicks.

Club career

São Paulo
Aurélio came through the youth scheme at São Paulo FC, making his first team debut in 1997 (22 years ago), and has represented Brazil at Under-17 and Under-20 levels. He also played in the 2000 (19 years ago) Sydney Olympics.

Valencia
He joined Valencia CF after the Olympics on a six-year contract. The 2001–02 season would see his first major trophy win, when he helped Valencia to their first La Liga championship in 31 years. The next year, he established himself as one of the league's best left-backs with 8 league goals; 10 goals in all competitions. The 2003–04 season was another big year for Valencia, winning both the domestic La Liga championship as well as the European 2003–04 UEFA Cup tournament, beating Olympique de Marseille 2–0 in the final. Aurélio missed most of the season with a broken leg, however, managing only two games.

Aurélio holds an Italian passport, allowing him to play in England without needing a work permit.

Liverpool
On 3 Jul. 2006 (13 years ago), the Liverpool Echo published an interview with Aurélio where he explained:

"I am going to a new club in which the trainer knows me, to see if I can conquer the objectives I have set myself. The most important moments I had in my career were the titles (with Valencia) and that was with Benítez. He trusted me and he continues to trust me and that is what I value more."

On 5 July, the transfer was confirmed by Liverpool.

Aurélio played a key part in Liverpool's squad during his first season, notably providing two assists for Peter Crouch and Daniel Agger in a 4–1 win over fellow title contenders Arsenal on 31 Mar. 2007 (12 years ago). However, Aurelio soon suffered a setback as he injured his achilles tendon on 3 Apr. in a UEFA Champions League first leg tie against PSV. Aurélio missed the rest of Liverpool's 2006–07 campaign and returned to the squad the following season on 18 September, coming on as a substitute in a 1–1 draw against F.C. Porto in the Champions League group phase.

Aurélio scored his first goal for Liverpool on 2 Mar. 2008 (11 years ago) in a league match win against Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok Stadium. The final score was 3-1, with Aurelio scoring Liverpool's third with a volley from Xabi Alonso's corner. He then scored on the 7th of Feb. 2009 (10 years ago) against Portsmouth at Fratton Park with an in-direct free kick into the bottom corner, getting his team back on level terms. The final score was 3-2 to Liverpool.

Aurélio went on to establish himself as Liverpool's first choice left-back but was again beset with injury in the team's 1-1 draw with Chelsea in a Champions League semi-final first leg clash. Aurélio tore his adductor muscle after a forceful impact with Joe Cole and as a result, was ruled out for the rest of the season.

For the 2008-09 season, Aurélio has been in direct competition with new signing Andrea Dossena. On 14 Mar. 2009 (10 years ago), Aurélio scored Liverpool's 3rd goal with a free-kick as Liverpool won 4-1 against Manchester United, at Old Trafford. On 14 April, he scored Liverpool's opening goal in the second leg of the Champions League quarter final against Chelsea with a low curling free kick. The match ended a 4-4 draw, with Chelsea progressing to the next round on aggregate.

It was reported on Thursday Jul. 9 that Aurelio suffered a knee injury while playing football with his children. Rumours were circulating that he would be out for 6 months but current manager Rafael Benítez quashed these rumours by confirming that he would only be out for 1–2 months. Aurelio made his return from injury by coming on as a substitute in Champions league game against Debreceni on 16th September.
