Felipe Campanholi Martins, commonly known as Felipe (born September 30, 1990)[1] is a Brazilian footballer currently playing for Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer.



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]
