Paulo Sérgio Silvestre do Nascimento (born 2 June 1969), commonly known as Paulo Sérgio is a former Brazilian footballer.[1] Whilst at Bayern Munich he won the Champions League in 2001, despite missing his penalty in the final shootout.[2]

Club career[edit]

Paulo Sérgio rose to prominence at Corinthians, where he was a key player in the early 1990s. In 1993 he was signed by Bayer Leverkusen, where he played for four seasons. His form was good enough for him to be included in the Brazilian national team, although he was not among the top scorers of Bundesliga. He was rated as a top class second striker.

In 1997, Paulo Sérgio was bought by Italian giants Roma, where he played for two seasons. He formed an effective striking partnership with the emerging Francesco Totti and Marco Delvecchio, scoring 22 goals in 57 league appearances. When Roma signed Vincenzo Montella from relegated Sampdoria in 1999, he moved on. FC Bayern Munich became his new employer, and in his three years at Bayern, he won both Champions League and Bundesliga, his finest club honours.

In 2002, Bayern signed several new players, and Paulo Sérgio was no longer in the first team plans, prompting him to move to Al-Wahda in Abu Dhabi, before finishing his career back in Bahia in his native Brazil.
