Dida is among the greatest players in Flamengo's history such as his idol Zizinho, Domingos da Guia, Leonidas da Silva and Zico. The skillful forward was the first great scorer of Maracanã. His delightful performances at the pitch made him an idol of idols as Zico, Júnior and Carlos Alberto. He led Flamengo to consecutive Carioca championships in 1954 and 1955.
Following his retirement, he remained with Flamengo, working for two decades with the club's youth teams, while staying out of the spotlight and refusing to give interviews.
