Career[edit]

Beginnings[edit]

After beginning his career with small clubs in Rio de Janeiro, Felipe signed with Italian club Padova in 2008. However, because of a minor heart defect, he was released.[2] After expressing an interest to play in England, Felipe had a successful trial with AFC Bournemouth which played in League One during the 2007-2008 season, and was offered a contract. Eddie Howe, then manager of Bournemouth said, "He`s got great talent and great feet and can certainly cross a ball. I`ve taken a long-term view and you`ve got to look to the future". Despite the strong interest from Bournemouth, Felipe opted to join FC Winterthur in Switzerland in January 2009.[3] At the end of the season, he joined FC Lugano and remained at the club for three seasons, scoring a total of seven goals in 50 games. In 2011, he was loaned out to FC Wohlen, where he tallied two goals in 15 games.

Montreal Impact[edit]

Felipe signed with expansion side Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer on December 21, 2011.[4] After a great start during his first year in MLS, he has become one of the top midfielders in the league as a "consistent two-way player with a high work rate" and a strong long range shot.[5]
