Victor Leandro Bagy, simply known as Victor (born 21 January 1983), is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Série A club Atlético Mineiro, as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Paulista[edit]

Born in Santo Anastácio, Victor joined São Paulo FC's youth setup in 1997, aged 14. However, a year later he moved to Paulista FC, due to the limited prospect of playing in the first-team.

Victor was called up to the main squad in 2000, but had to wait until 2003 to make his senior debuts. He served his first years mostly as a backup to Rafael Bracalli, but in 2006, after the latter's move to C.D. Nacional, he was chosen as first-choice; Victor also was a part of the squad which won the 2005 Copa do Brasil, but remained as a substitute in the both legs of the final.[2]

Grêmio[edit]

On 18 December 2007, Victor joined Grêmio,[3] with the Tricolor paying R$400,000 for a half of his registration rights.[4] He retained a starting spot during his first games at the club, but suffered an injury on 24 February 2008, being sidelined for one and a half month.[5]

Victor returned from injury and was an undisputed starter during the year, appearing in all matches during the Brasileirão and being elected the best goalkeeper of the tournament. In 2009 he was again the championship's best, but his contribution was reduced due to call-ups to the national side; in the summer, Victor was also linked to A.S. Bari[6] and S.L. Benfica,[7] but nothing came of it.

On 18 June 2010 he signed a new contract with Grêmio, running until 2015.[8] Victor remained in the starting XI, and his side finished fourth. However, in the following years, Grêmio struggled to maintain the same levels of the past seasons, but he still managed to appeared 32 times in 2011.

Atlético-MG[edit]

On 29 June 2012 Victor joined Atlético Mineiro for a 3,5 million fee, signing a five-year contract.[9] He was again first-choice in his new club, appearing in 29 matches as Galo finished second.

In 2013, Victor was one of the key figures of the 2013 Copa Libertadores winning campaign, by saving penalties against Club Tijuana,[10] Newell's Old Boys[11] and Club Olimpia.

International career[edit]

On 21 May 2009, Victor was called up for the first time to the Brazilian national team for 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification and 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup.[12]

On 10 August 2010 he made his debut with the main squad, starting in a 2–0 win against United States.[13] On 7 May 2014, Victor was included among the 23-man squad ahead of 2014 FIFA World Cup.[14]
