Rodrigo Galo Brito (born 19 September 1986) is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Superleague club, AEK Athens as a right back.

Club career[edit]

In 2000, Rodrigo entered the academy of Juventus and his junior career started off. He spent four years playing for the club’s youth teams. In 2005, he was noticed by Avaí. Brito passed the preliminary tests and was drafted into the youth department of his new club. In 2006, Rodrigo signed a pro contract with Avaí for a period of two years. He didn’t become the team’s starter, making occasional appearances as a sub. In total, he appeared 31 times for the Brazilian squad. In the summer 2008, the footballer moved to Portugal to perform for Gil Vicente. He fitted the team perfectly, scoring 12 goals in 86 matches as a starter. In the summer 2011, Galo signed for Braga, but didn’t get much playing time, so he was sent to his previous club – Gil Vicente. In 2012, he was sent on loan at Académica de Coimbra and later on to the Greek Super League side Panetolikos. In the summer of 2014, he played for Paços de Ferreira as a right back and right midfielder.[1]

In March 2015, "AEK have not contacted my agent", the Pacos Fereira defender said. "My contract in the summer and I can talk with other clubs, but we have not discussed with AEK or any other team. The things will be different this year. Of course I am interested in playing for a great team, like AEK. I know they went through a crisis, but that doesn't mean anything. They will return to the Super League and it would be an honor for me to be part of the team". [2]

In May 2015 Rodrigo signed a two-year contract with the Greek club AEK.[3][4] On 13 January 2017, AEK officially announced the extension of experienced Brazilian right defender Rodrigo Galo Brito's contract until the summer of 2019.
