Edson Luiz da Silva (born 15 March 1977) is a former Brazilian professional footballer who played as left-back, who could also adapt to play in midfield.

Career[edit]

During his brief spell at Marseille he played in the 1999 UEFA Cup Final.[1]

In the summer of 2005, Edson signed for Lisbon side Sporting CP,[2] after three seasons with União de Leiria where his side reach the final of the Taça de Portugal and the Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira.[3][4] In January 2006, after making only one league appearance with the Leões,[5] Edson was loaned out to Polish side Legia Warsaw where he would help his side win the Ekstraklasa.[6][7]

He quickly made a name for himself in the Orange Ekstraklasa, scoring some impressive goals from free-kicks. However he was unable to maintain his form and he was eventually dropped in favor of Grzegorz Bronowicki. However, in the 2007/2008 season Bronowicki's was sold to Crvena Zvezda Belgrad and new manager of Legia Warsaw, Jan Urban moved Edson to the midfield and he reclaimed his place in first eleven. He then lost his place again to 18-year-old Maciej Rybus.

On August 1, 2009 he moved to Polish Ekstraklasa side Korona Kielce.[8] On August 9 he made his debut for his new club in a match against Lech Poznań.[9]
