Edcarlos Conceição Santos (born 10 May 1985 in Salvador, Bahia), known simply as Edcarlos, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Atlético Mineiro as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Edcarlos comes from the youth of São Paulo. In 2004, he joined the first team of the club, being part of the historic 2005 team that conquered the Campeonato Paulista and the Copa Libertadores and then the FIFA Club World Cup. He played the two games at the Club World Cup, helping São Paulo win the title for the first time in the club's history.[1][2] The following year, he helped the team win their first Campeonato Brasileiro since 1991.

In 2007, he moved to Europe and signed with the Portuguese club Benfica in August 2007 for €1.8M.[3] Under coach José Antonio Camacho he was a regular player and played among other things in the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Cup, partnering with Luisão, due to David Luiz injury. However his performances were subpar and he moved on loan the following year, returning to his native Brazil, to Fluminense.[4] After good performances in the first six months, he gradually lost his place, after getting less and less games.[5]

In January 2010 he was sold to the Mexican club Cruz Azul for €1.3M.[6] In July 2010, he returned to Brazil, being loaned to Cruzeiro,[7] moving later to Grémio in August 2011.[8]

International career[edit]

Edcarlos played for Brazil in the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, held in the Netherlands.
