Ananias Eloi Castro Monteiro (20 January 1989 – 28 November 2016), known as Ananias, was a Brazilian footballer who last played as an attacking midfielder for Chapecoense.

Ananias was one of the victims when LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 crashed on 28 November 2016.

Career[edit]

Born in São Luís, Maranhão, Ananias graduated from Bahia's youth categories, and made his professional debuts in 2008 Série B. In 2011, he was loaned to Portuguesa, in a two-year deal.[1][2]

After good performances on the club, and with Lusa being compared with Barcelona, Ananias was called Ananiesta (compared with Andrés Iniesta) by the fans.[3] In April 2012, Portuguesa bought half of his rights from Bahia.

On 10 January 2013 Ananias moved to Cruzeiro, with Souza moving in the opposite direction.[4] On 29 May, however, he was loaned to Palmeiras until the end of the year.[5]

After achieving promotion with Verdão, Ananias was subsequently loaned to Sport Recife[6] (also scoring the first official goal of Allianz Parque in a 2–0 away win against former club Palmeiras on 19 November 2014)[7] and Chapecoense.[8]

On 11 December 2015, Ananias signed a permanent contract with Chape.[9] The following 2 November, he scored the equalizer in a 1–1 draw at San Lorenzo for the year's Copa Sudamericana,[10] which would later ensure his team in the finals through the away goals rule.

Death[edit]

On 28 November 2016, whilst at the service of Chapecoense, Ananias was among the fatalities of the LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 accident in the Colombian village of Cerro Gordo, La Unión, Antioquia.[11]
