Leandro da Silva (born 11 January 1989) is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Born in Rio Branco do Sul, Paraná, Silva started his professional career with Coritiba Foot Ball Club. He appeared with the first team in the 2009 edition of the Brazilian Cup, against Centro Sportivo Alagoano[1] and Associação Atlética Ponte Preta.[2]

In that summer, Silva was bought by S.L. Benfica.[3] He was immediately loaned to another side in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, Guimarães-based Vitória SC, being rarely used during the season.

On 25 March 2011, Silva returned to Brazil and signed a long-term contract with Paraná Clube. After failing to appear officially, however, he moved clubs and countries again, joining Doxa Katokopias F.C. from the Cypriot First Division.

International career[edit]

Silva was part of the Brazil under-20 squad at the 2009 South American Youth Championship, as the nation emerged victorious.
