Robson Alves da Silva, known as Robson, (born November 3, 1986 in Rio de Janeiro) is a Brazilian footballer who currently plays for Marília Atlético Clube.


Club career[edit]

Robson played for Brazilian clubs Flamengo and Cabofriense between 2004 and 2008.

On December 15, 2008 it was announced that Robson, and fellow Brazilian Jefferson had signed one-year deals to play for A-League club Gold Coast United.

Robson was spotted playing for a match arranged for scouts in Rio de Janeiro. He scored on his A-League debut for Gold Coast United United against Brisbane Roar in a 3-1 victory.[1][2][3]

After an impressive debut performance against Brisbane Roar where Robson scored the third goal in the 3-1 win, he was offered a 3-year deal by Gold Coast which he also signed.

He was caught drunk driving after a night out with friends.[4] Robson landed himself in hot water once more with Gold Coast manager Miron Bleiberg and faced being axed from Gold Coast United, after he failed to show up to a Youth League game after being dropped from the first XI soon after the loss to Adelaide United.[5]
