Marcelo Leite Pereira known as Marcelinho (born 22 June 1987) is a Brazilian professional footballer who last played for Avaí as a forward. He is known for his great skills with excellent pace and ball control. He has a brilliant vision for goal and capable of scoring with both feet. He has dominated third edition of Hero Indian Super League by delivering 10 goals and 5 assists and winning Golden Boot for Delhi Dynamos alongside former Chelsea player Florent Molouda who has won golden ball for his team. Marcelino goal has been named as Best International week goal for club Delhi Dynamos vs Goa FC.


In 2008, he signed a contract with Kalamata. After a few months there he signed a contract with Skoda Xanthi and he stayed there for four years and then he signed with Baniyas in UAE, for a fee of €600.000.[1] In Skoda Xanthi, Marcelinho played 115 games( 17 goals, 14 assists) in all competitions.

According to Sky Sport, the 26-year-old Brazilian midfielder has signed a one-year contract (with an option for two additional years) with Catania.[2][3] Eventually, on 12 July 2014, it was officially announced that Marcelinho signed a one-year contract with Catania as a free transfer.[4]

On 18 January 2015 he signed with Atromitos F.C.. The length of the contract is 1½ years. "Greece is my second home and when I was informed about the interest of the club, I knew I had to come back. Although in Italy the level of footballer is higher, we decided together with my family to grab this opportunity. I had proposals from other Greek clubs but I did not want to go somewhere else."[5]

On 30 July 2015, in a game for UEFA Europa League preliminary round against AIK Solna, Marcelinho was the man of the match having one assist, a goal and a drawn penalty, in a victorious 3–1 away win.[6] On 4 February 2016, he mutually agreed with the club to solve his contract.[7] In 2016, he agreed to join Indian Super League side, Delhi Dynamos, playing alongside the likes of Florent Malouda and Antonio Doblas.
