Club career[edit]

Górnik Łęczna[edit]

In February 2011, he was loaned to Górnik Łęczna on a half year deal.[1]

Sheriff Tiraspol[edit]

Ricardinho joined Sheriff Tiraspol on 1 July 2013, for a fee of 350,000 euros.[2][3] During the first half of the 2014–15 Moldovan National Division season, Ricardinho scored 11 goals in 14 games, but, due to the withdrawal of Veris Chișinău and Costuleni from the league, Ricardinho's goals against these teams were canceled. As a result, 2 goals were stripped off from Ricardinho's total goal tally.[4][5]

Al-Sharjah loan[edit]

On 21 January 2016, Ricardinho moved to UAE Arabian Gulf League side Al-Sharjah on loan,[6] returning to Sheriff Tiraspol on 5 July 2016.[7]

Red Star Belgrade[edit]

On 16 June 2017, Ricardinho signed a two-year deal with Red Star Belgrade, choosing 89 jersey.[8] He made his Red Star debut in a 3-0 win against Floriana.[9]
