Leandro dos Santos Branco (born 2 June 1983 in Lages, Santa Catarina) is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a forward for Águia Negra.

Football career[edit]

After spending most of his career with modest clubs in his country, Branco moved in 2007–08 to Portugal, signing with Vitória de Setúbal.[1] His stint with the Sado River side proved a nightmare, as he failed to score a single Primeira Liga goal in two seasons combined, also receiving his marching orders in a 1–2 away loss against C.F. Os Belenenses on 11 April 2009;[2] he netted twice in official games during his stint, one in the Portuguese Cup and another in the domestic League Cup, with his team winning the latter competition.

In the 2009 summer, Branco returned to his country, signing with Criciúma Esporte Clube. The following year he switched to amateurs Clube Atlético Metropolitano, and continued playing at that level in the subsequent campaigns, representing for example Clube Náutico Marcílio Dias and Associação Cultural Recreativa e Esportiva Atlético Cidade in several stints.
