Early career[edit]

Born in Andradina, Brazl, Cadú started his senior career in his homeland by playing with Campinas Futebol Clube and Porto Alegre.[2] He left Brazil and moved to Montenegro in summer 2007 by joining Montenegrin First League side FK Zeta where he will play the following two seasons.[3]

Red Star Belgrade[edit]

Cadú was signed by Serbian side Red Star Belgrade in June 2009.[4] He won with Red Star two Serbian Cups. Cadú has played an important role in Red Star's matches during the qualification for the UEFA Europa League since he joined the team in 2009. His first goal for Red Star Belgrade in any UEFA league was scored against Dinamo Tbilisi in the second qualifying round of the Europa League.[5] In the third qualifying round of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League qualifying phase and play-off round, he scored a goal against Slovan Bratislava.[6] In a Belgrade Derby match on 5 May 2012, Red Star won against its eternal rival Partizan by 1–0, with Cadú scoring the decisive 90th minute goal from over 20 meters out.[7] He is the most scoring foreign player in Red Star Belgrade's history.

Sheriff Tiraspol[edit]

Cadú joined Sheriff Tiraspol on 17 June 2013, through a bosman move after his contract at Red Star wasn't renewed.[8]
