Hélder Manuel Marques Postiga, (born 2 August 1982) is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Atletico de Kolkata as a striker.

After beginning at Porto, where he won eight items of silverware along the way, he amassed Primeira Liga totals of 193 games and 54 goals over 11 seasons, with that club, Sporting and Rio Ave. He also played in six foreign countries, most notably in Spain where he totalled 27 goals in 99 La Liga matches for three teams.

A Portuguese international since 2003, Postiga represented the country in two World Cups and three European Championships, helping the nation reach the final at Euro 2004.

On 29 July 2015, Postiga signed as the marquee player of Indian Super League franchise Atlético de Kolkata; at 32, he was the youngest such player in the competition, and was deemed by the management to be less injury-prone than his predecessor Luis García. He made his debut on 3 October in the opening game of the season, scoring twice in a 3–2 win at Chennaiyin FC but leaving the game with an injury; he made no further appearances, as his team went on to be eliminated by precisely that opponent in the play-off semi-finals.

He was retained as a marquee player for the second successive season after his short stint at Rio A.v.

Lets hope stays out of injury this time around and have a great season with us !
