Felipe Souza Campos, nicknamed Felipe, (born 24 May 1981) is a Brazilian football player, who plays for Guarani de Palhoça.


Club career[edit]

An attacking midfielder who occupies the hole between midfield and the strikers, he joined the Wellington Phoenix prior to the 2007–08 season and signed a 9-month contract with the option of a further year at the end of that. He quickly became a crowd favourite at Wellington, showcasing skills rarely seen in the A-League. In a round 4 away clash against Sydney FC, Wellington Phoenix managed to come out victors 2–1, with Felipe scoring a stunning goal.

Felipe was signed by the Gold Coast Galaxy, but became a free agent after the FFA turned down the Gold Coast licence application for the Australian A-League 2008–09 season. After Australia, Felipe spent 3 weeks with Wisla Krakow in Poland, but when the transfer window closed, he went back to Brazil to play with a local club.[1]

He was signed by the North Queensland Fury on a 2-year contract.[2] Before joining up with North Queensland, Felipe decided to play in Saudi Arabia with Al Raed, and was released by the Fury from his 2-year contract. In June 2010, he was loaned to Al-Wehda by Al Raed.
