Madson Formagini Caridade or simply Madson (born May 21, 1986 in Volta Redonda), is a Brazilian footballer who plays attacking midfielder. He currently plays for Al-Khor. He is known for his small stature and his set pieces.
Natural Volta Redonda, Rio de Janeiro, Madson began his career in football still in the youth ranks of local club. In 2005, the team drew the attention of Estádio São Januário, having been hired that year to join the junior division Cruzmaltina, under the command of experienced coach Toninho Barroso. In Estádio São Januário, he played, lived and studied.
At the time, an attacking midfielder extremely skilled and fast, just promoted to professionals in 2006 by then-coach Renato Gaúcho. Despite having become a real sweetheart of Vasco da Gama, failed to provide them a regularity that they hold. Ended up losing even more space on the team with the departure of Renato Gaúcho and the arrival of Celso Roth to the command of Vasco da Gama in 2007.
However, later in the year, his contract with Atlético was terminated, and he returned to Santos because he "violated the rules of Football Training Department and internal rules of the club".
