A left-back who grew up alongside legend Roberto Carlos and, after a long spell in the youth team at Corinthians, was eventually called into the first-team squad. It only took a few games for the "apprentice" to replace the "master" as he impressed everyone at his club with his quality as footballer. He has a remarkable engine along with typical Brazilian technical ability. His talent (which he also displayed with the Brazilian national youth teams) attracted scouts from major overseas clubs (especially Manchester United), but he preferred to stay put in Brazil. In 2011 he moved to Bahia on loan, but suffered a serious injury to his knee ligaments, keeping him on the sidelines until 2012. In spite of his injury Roma have high hopes for him and secured his signature to develop him further at Trigoria. This is what Walter Sabatini had to say about him: "Dodô is a great footballer, he plays the game the right way. He’ll entertain our fans." His first campaign at Roma was interrupted by injury, but this will be his season.
