Leonardo José Aparecido Moura (born 9 March 1986), simply known as Leonardo, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Santo André as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Leonardo was born in Guarulhos, São Paulo, and joined Santos' youth setup in 1998, aged 12. He was promoted to the main squad in 2004, and made his first team – and Série A – debut on 16 October, starting in a 4–0 home win against Ponte Preta.[1]

On 22 July 2005 Leonardo signed a five-year contract with Shakhtar Donetsk, for a $1.8 million fee.[2] Despite being regularly used, mainly in the 2006–07 campaign, he was shown the door by the club due to the new rules of the league.[3]

Leonardo was loaned to Santos in February 2007,[4] but after struggling with fitness, moved to São Caetano in March 2008 also in a temporary deal.[5] He was more utilized during his spell at the latter,

On 9 February 2009 Leonardo was again loaned, this time to Vasco da Gama.[6] On 18 June, after appearing rarely with the side, he returned to Shakhtar, being used only as a backup during the season.[7]

Leonardo was subsequently loaned to Grêmio Prudente,[8] Avaí[9] and Atlético Goianiense, signing permanently with the latter in 2012.[10]

On 18 June 2013 Leonardo joined Criciúma,[11] He subsequently represented Ponte Preta,[12] Bragantino[13] and Ituano,[14] all in his native state.

On 15 May 2015 Leonardo returned to Santos, signing until the end of 2016.[15] On 6 January of the following year, after being rarely used, he rescinded his link,[16] and joined Mersin İdmanyurdu a day later.

International career[edit]

After representing Brazil in the under-17 and under-20 levels, Leonardo was called up to the main squad by manager Carlos Alberto Parreira on 18 April 2005, for a friendly against Guatemala.[17] However, he did not play the match.
