Style of play[edit]

Rodrigo Caio is known for his versatility. In 2012, in victory for 3-2 against Santos FC, valid by State League, he played as right side back, with the responsibility to be Neymar's marking man. After the game, Rodrigo Caio was praised by press for annulling the santista forward. He executed movimento do escorpião (In English, Scorpion Movement), a well known move in indoor soccer, to prevent some dribbles and shoots from Joia.[1]

In 2013, with Paulo Miranda's and Édson Silva's injuries, Rodrigo has started to play as defender. After good performances, he was praised by Paulo Autuori, coach of club, who contrasts his "disposal" in favor of São Paulo. Rodrigo Caio's good moment as defender is so prolific that Antônio Carlos, a hiring of club in the middle of Brazilian League, came to São Paulo FC and has became a substitute.[2]
