Cléber António de Oliveira or simply Clebão or Cléber (born July 9, 1983) is a Brazilian football player who is currently playing for América de Natal.

Club career[edit]


After a brief stay with Santos FC, Clebão started his career with São Paulo state club Sãocarlense. In 2004, he moved to Campeonato Mineiro club Caldense. After one season with the club he moved to São Carlos and helped his new club capture the 2005 Campeonato Paulista Segunda Divisão.


In February 2007, Clebão was loaned out to China League One side Guangzhou Pharmaceutical for one season.[1] He helped Guangzhou win the first place of China League One and promotion to the China Super League.

Return to Brazil[edit]

Following his loan stint in China he returned to São Carlos. His play with São Carlos led to interest from Campeonato Paulista Série A2 side União São João which took him on loan during the 2008 season. While with São Carlos Clebão appeared in 63 matches (fourth most appearances with the club) and scored 6 goals.[2]


Following the 2009 season Clebão started to receive offers from European clubs including Portugal's C.F. Os Belenenses [3] and was reportedly close to signing with recently promoted 2. Fußball-Bundesliga side FC Union Berlin. After the move fell through, he transferred to C.D. Nacional of the Portuguese Liga in August 2009 and made his debut for Nacional against Sporting CP on 15 August playing the full 90 in a 1-1 draw. During his time with Nacional he appeared in seven league matches and featured in one Europa League match.
