Football career[edit]

Born in São Paulo, Abreu played youth football for four different clubs, two of them abroad and the last being Torino FC. In 2003, aged not yet 19, he moved to Spain and signed for Racing de Santander, being registered with the B-side for the vast majority of his four-year spell; on 17 June 2007, the final day of the season, he played his only La Liga game, which consisted of five minutes in a 0–2 home loss against Real Betis.[1]

For the 2007–08 campaign Abreu joined another reserve team in the country and the third division, Atlético Madrid B. In the 2009 summer he signed with NK Olimpija Ljubljana in the Slovenian PrvaLiga, moving in quick succession to Olympiakos Nicosia (Cyprus) and IFK Mariehamn (Finland's Veikkausliiga).

On 7 January 2012 Abreu changed clubs and countries again, reuniting with countryman and former Santander teammate Arthuro at Malaysia's Johor Darul Takzim FC.[2][3]
