Mateus Lucena dos Santos (30 August 1994 – 28 November 2016), commonly known as Caramelo, was a Brazilian professional footballer who played for Chapecoense on loan from São Paulo FC as a right back.

Club career[edit]

Mogi Mirim[edit]

Born in Clementina, São Paulo, Caramelo joined Mogi Mirim's youth setup in 2009, aged 14. On 21 April 2013 he made his senior debut, starting in a 1–0 Campeonato Paulista home win against São Paulo.[1]

Caramelo remained as a starter in the following two matches, a 6–0 routing of Botafogo-SP[2] and a 1–1 draw against Santos, with his side being knocked out in the semifinals after a penalty shootout.[3]

São Paulo[edit]

On 17 May 2013, Caramelo and Mogi teammate Roni signed with São Paulo.[4] He made his Série A debut on 6 June, coming on as a second half substitute for Maicon in a 0–1 home loss against Goiás.[5]

After returning from loan in January 2016, Caramelo was included in the main squad. Mainly used as a backup to Bruno, he was sent out on loan for the third time after the arrival of Julio Buffarini.

Atlético Goianiense (loan)[edit]

Rerely used by Tricolor in the previous campaign, Caramelo signed a one-year loan deal with Atlético Goianiense.[6] A starter during the club's Campeonato Goiano winning campaign, he was demoted to second-choice during the year's Série B.

Caramelo's first professional goal came on 3 October 2014, in a 1–1 away draw against América Mineiro.

Chapecoense (loans)[edit]

In January 2015, Caramelo joined Chapecoense on loan until December.[7] He was rarely used during his first spell at the club, being an immediate backup to starter Apodi.

On 5 August 2016, Caramelo returned to Chape also on loan, until the end of the year.[8] Initially a second-choice to Gimenez, he overtook the latter in the final stages of the season.

Death[edit]

On 28 November 2016, whilst at the service of Chapecoense, Caramelo was among the fatalities of the LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 accident in the Colombian village of Cerro Gordo, La Unión, Antioquia.[9]
