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] His form with Winterthur brought Felipe to the attention of bigger Swiss clubs. 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 with Montreal

Felipe signed with expansion side Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer on December 21, 2011.[4] In his first season with Montreal he appeared in 30 league games scoring 4 goals and led the Impact with 10 assists. Felipe had a solid 2013 season in which he appeared in 32 league matches scoring 5 goals and 8 assists. He helped the club capture the 2013 Canadian Championship scoring Montreal's first goal in a 2-2 draw against Vancouver Whitecaps on May 29, 2013.[5] Felipe continued his fine play for Montreal during the 2014 season as he appeared in 31 league matches scoring 3 goals and 6 assists. His goal in second half stoppage time of the second leg of the 2014 Canadian Championship final against Toronto FC at Stade Saputo on June 4, 2014 gave Montreal a 2-1 aggregate victory and a second consecutive Canadian Championship.[6]

New York Red Bulls[edit]

On January 27, 2015 it was announced that Felipe had been traded to New York Red Bulls along with the top spot in the allocation order from the Montreal Impact, in exchange for Eric Alexander, Ambroise Oyongo, and an international player spot.[7] Felipe made his debut for New York on March 8, 2015 appearing as a starter in a 1-1 draw at Sporting Kansas City. [8] On April 26, 2015 Felipe scored his first goal for New York in a 1-1 draw against the LA Galaxy. [9]
