João Natailton Ramos dos Santos or simply Joãozinho (Russian: Жоао Натаилтон Рамос Дос Сантос; born 25 December 1988 in Umbaúba) is a Brazilian-Russian professional footballer who plays for FC Krasnodar.

Career[edit]

Levski Sofia[edit]

He signed his five-year-contract with Levski Sofia on 7 December 2007.[1] The same day he made his first training with his new club. Joãozinho made his unofficial debut in a friendly match against FC Dynamo Kyiv on 20 January 2008. He played for 45 minutes. Levski lost the match with a result of 1-2.

His initial number was supposed to be 20, but when Hristo Yovov left Levski Sofia there were no troubles for Joãozinho to play with number 10.

He scored his first goal for Levski on 10 February 2008 in a friendly match against FC Rapid Bucureşti. Joãozinho scored a penalty kick. Joãozinho made his official debut for Levski on 24 February 2008 in a match against Chernomorets Burgas, the match from Bulgarian A PFG. Levski won the match. The result was 2-1, after goals from Jean Carlos and Daniel Borimirov. He scored his first goal for Levski on 22 March 2008 against Belasitsa Petrich in the 87th minute, making the result 4-0 for Levski. He directed the ball into the net after a shot by Darko Tasevski which was going out of the goalkeeper's frame.

He became a Champion of Bulgaria in 2009. He was also honoured with a fairplay award for 2009 due to not receiving a single booking in the A PFG during that year.[2]

Krasnodar[edit]

On 30 January 2011, after days of speculations, Joãozinho revealed that he had moved to Krasnodar.[3] In early February 2011, the transfer was finalized and the Brazilian signed his contract with the Russian club. On 6 February 2011, Joãozinho made his unofficial debut for the team from Krasnodar, playing the first 63 minutes in the 2-2 draw with Ukrainian side SC Tavriya Simferopol in a friendly match. On 15 February 2011, he scored a goal and provided an assist in the 4-0 rout against Czech club FK Baumit Jablonec. Joãozinho's official debut came on 6 March 2011 in the 1-0 win against Amkar Perm in a Russian Cup match, with the Brazilian being in the starting line-up. His Russian Premier League debut occurred 6 days later in the 0-0 away draw with FC Anzhi Makhachkala. On 14 June 2011, the Brazilian opened his account for the team, netting twice in the 4-2 home win against Volga Nizhny Novgorod.[4] He suffered a broken foot in a March 2015 match.

Personal life[edit]

In August 2016, he received Russian citizenship.[5]
