Luiz Antônio de Souza Soares (born 11 March 1991), known as Luiz Antônio, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Chapecoense, on loan from Flamengo. Mainly a defensive midfielder, he can also play as a right back.

Club career[edit]

Flamengo[edit]

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Luiz Antônio joined Flamengo's youth setup in 2003, aged 11. He made his first team – and Série A – debut on 19 June 2011, in a 0–0 home draw against Botafogo.[1]

On 26 August 2011 Luiz Antônio renewed his contract until 2016,[2] but subsequently suffered a shoulder injury which kept him out for the remainder of the campaign. He scored his first professional goal on 25 January of the following year, but in a 1–2 Copa Libertadores away loss against Real Potosí.[3]

Sport (loan)[edit]

On 29 December 2015, Luiz Antônio agreed to a one-year loan deal with fellow top tier club Sport.[4] A starter during the 2016 Campeonato Pernambucano, he was rarely used in the year's Brasileirão, and rescinded his contract.

Bahia (loan)[edit]

Immediately after rescinding with Sport, Luiz Antônio joined Bahia on loan until the end of the year.[5] He was a regular starter for the club, achieving promotion to the main category after contributing with three goals in 21 appearances.

Chapecoense (loan)[edit]

On 16 January 2017 Chapecoense signed Luiz Antônio, on loan from Flamengo, until the 2017 season.[6] He also scored the winning goal for the side in their Libertadores debut on 7 March, a 2–1 away win against Zulia.
