Diego Gustavo Ferraresso Scheda (Bulgarian: Диего Фераресо; born May 21, 1992), or simply Diego, is a Brazilian-born Bulgarian footballer who plays as a full-back for Ekstraklasa side Cracovia.

Career[edit]

Diego started to play football in a private junior school of São Paulo.[citation needed] He comes from a poor family.[1]

Litex Lovech[edit]

He moved to Bulgaria, joining Litex Lovech's academy, after catching the eye of player agent Rogério Pereira.[1] Ferares made his team debut for Litex Lovech in a friendly match against Macedonian FK Pelister on July 1, 2008. In his first months with Litex, Diego played for reserve squad. Diego's first official match was against PFC Belasitsa Petrich on May 15, 2009.[1] He entered as a substitution in the 78 minute and scored his first goal for Litex. On June 14, 2009, Diego scored a hat-trick against Spartak Varna. He ended the 2008–09 season with 5 goals in 4 league matches.

Chavdar Etropole[edit]

After two seasons in Litex Lovech in 2011 he join to "B" group team Chavdar Etropole. He played two seasons, made 36 caps and scored six goals.

In the summer of 2012, Ferraresso spent approximately a month training with Botev Plovdiv, receiving the approval of then manager Ferario Spasov. However, the "canaries" were unable to sign him, as with his transfer they would have exceeded the limit on non-EU players in the team.[1]

Lokomotiv Plovdiv[edit]

For 2012–13 season, he signed with Lokomotiv Plovdiv.[2]

International career[edit]

In June 2012, Diego received Bulgarian citizenship after he had lived in the country for five years.[3] Same year he received a call up for a training camp of Bulgaria U21 and have represented the team.[4] In an interview for the Brazilian web magazine Medium in April 2018, Diego showed his desire to represent Bulgaria on international level and to play in the World cup with the team.[5]
