Football career

V. Guimarães

Born in the village of Vermil in Guimarães, João Pedro joined local Vitória SC's youth system at the age of 12.[1] He made his senior debut with their reserves, his first Segunda Liga appearance taking place on 11 November 2012 when he came on as a 73rd-minute substitute in a 0-0 home draw against C.F. Os Belenenses.[2]

João Pedro first appeared with the first team in competitive matches - and in the Primeira Liga - on 4 May 2014, playing injury time in a 0-0 away draw to Académica de Coimbra.[3] In the 2014-15 season he started in 42 matches for the B-side, scoring once[4] to help them finish ninth in the second level.

João Pedro scored his only goal for Vitória's main squad on 18 December 2016, playing the entire 3-1 home win over Vitória de Setúbal.[5]

LA Galaxy

On 19 January 2017, João Pedro signed with the LA Galaxy.[6] He made his debut in the Major League Soccer on 4 March, starting and being booked in a 1-2 loss against FC Dallas at StubHub Center.[7] He scored his first goal in the competition on 28 May, contributing to the 4-2 away success over the San Jose Earthquakes.[8]

On 20 August 2018, João Pedro joined Superleague Greece club Apollon Smyrni F.C. on loan.[9] He scored his first goal for his new team on 1 November, in a 5-0 home win against Apollon Paralimnio F.C. for the group stage of the Greek Cup.[10]

João Pedro returned to his homeland after being loaned to C.D. Tondela on a short-team deal on 29 January 2019,[11] and the move was extended in August.[12]
