Robson Ponte (born 6 November 1976 in São Paulo) is a Brazilian former footballer. He spent most of his career at Bayer 04 Leverkusen in Germany and Urawa Red Diamonds in Japan.

Club career[edit]

He was offered a contract by Bundesliga club Bayer 04 Leverkusen in August 1999. He played for three seasons at Leverkusen. In the month of his transfer, German techno label Kompakt released a single entitled 'Robson Ponte'.[1]

Before the 2001–02 season started, Ponte moved on loan to another Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg. At Wolfsburg, he managed 61 appearances in two seasons and scored 13 goals.

Ponte signed on free transfer with Japanese giants Urawa Red Diamonds before his contract with Leverkusen expired in July 2005. He, an all-around midfielder, took both penalty kicks and corners for Urawa for five seasons. In 2007, he received the Most Valuable Player award of the season.

Ponte ended his playing career with foreign professional leagues in 2010 and returned his country Brazil to spend his last years. He joined Grêmio Barueri on 26 May 2011.
