Alex, real name Alexsandro de Souza, (born September 14, 1977 in Curitiba) is a Brazilian football (soccer) attacking midfielder, who is currently playing for Fenerbahçe in Turkey after being transferred from Cruzeiro in 2004 for 5 million dollars [ [http://www.fenevbahce.org/eng/kurumsaldetay.asp?ContentID=50 Alex De Souza profile] Fenerbahçe Official Web Site Retrieved 30 December2006.] . He is formerly known for his role as team captain on the Brazilian National Team after rising to prominence with Palmeiras. He is a skillful left-footed player who is adept at taking free-kicks, penalties, and corners for his team, as well as scoring from the run of play. He has tallied numerous goals for every team he has played for and is also known for his playmaking skills; more often than not leading his current league in assists. His flashy dribbling and wise on-field decisions have made him a quick fan favorite at Fenerbahçe [ [http://www.fenevbahce.org/eng/kurumsaldetay.asp?ContentID=50 Alex De Souza profile] Fenerbahçe Official Web Site Retrieved 31 December2006.] . On April 92006 he scored 2 goals in a Turkcell Super League game against Sivasspor. The second one was his 250th career goal.

In 1999, IFFHS named Alex the 3rd best striker in the world. [ [http://www.alex10.com.br/pt/carreira/titulos.asp Awards] Alex10.com.br Retrieved 30 December2006. ]

Fenerbahçe stated the desire to keep him [ [http://www.turkishdailynews.com.tr/article.php?enewsid=61727 Zico a happy man] Turkish Daily News Retrieved 5 January 2007. ] and Alex also stated he wanted to stay at the club. [ [http://www.fenevbahce.org/eng/detay.asp?ContentID=842 I know I’m going to stay in Fenerbahce'] Fenerbahçe Official Web Site Retrieved 13 April2007] . His agent Juan Figer and Fenerbahçe came to an agreement and signed a 2 year contract with an option for one additional year.
