His initial number was supposed to be 20, but when Hristo Yovov left Levski Sofia there were no troubles for Joãozinho to play with number 10. He play like a left winger.

The result was 2:1, after goals from Jean Carlos and Daniel Borimirov. He scored his first goal for Levski on 22 March 2008 against Belasitsa Petrich in the 87th minute, making the result 4:0 for Levski. He directed the ball into the net after a shot by Darko Tasevski which was going out of the goalkeeper's frame.

He became a Champion of Bulgaria in 2009. He was also honoured with a fairplay award for 2009 due to not receiving a single booking in the A PFG during that year.[2]

Krasnodar[edit]

On 30 January 2011, after days of speculations, Joãozinho revealed that he had moved to Krasnodar.[3] On 1 February 2011, the transfer was finalized and the Brazilian signed his contract with the Russian club. On 6 February 2011, Joãozinho made his unofficial debut for the team from Krasnodar, playing the first 63 minutes in the 2:2 draw with Ukrainian side SC Tavriya Simferopol in a friendly match.
