Club career[edit]

Grêmio[edit]

Born in Aracaju, Sergipe, Thiego started his career at Sergipe's youth setup, and impressed enough to secure a move to Grêmio in 2006.

Initially assigned to the under-20s, Thiego was promoted to the first team the following year; known as Willian Thiego, he only used the last name due to the presence of Willian Magrão in the squad. He made his Série A debut during the campaign, contributing with 11 appearances.

On 14 June 2008 Thiego scored his top tier goal, a powerful close-range shot in a 3–0 away win against Goiás.[1] He would subsequently appear regularly for the club, also representing the side in 2009 Copa Libertadores.

Thiego was sent on a one-year loan to Kyoto Sanga FC in January 2010.[2] Upon returning, he subsequently served another temporary deal at Bahia[3] before leaving the club.

Ceará / Figueirense[edit]

On 5 March 2012, Thiego was sold to Ceará.[4] He immediately became a regular starter at the club, but was still released on 31 October.[5]

On 16 January 2013, Thiego signed a one-year deal with Figueirense.[6]

Khazar Lankaran[edit]

Following the expiration of his Figueirense contract, Thiego signed an 18-month contract with Khazar Lankaran of the Azerbaijan Premier League on 27 January 2014.[7] He left Khazar Lankaran in December 2014, after having his contract cancelled by the club.[8]

Chapecoense[edit]

In January 2015, Willian Thiego signed for Chapecoense.[9] A backup to Rafael Lima during his first season, he became a regular starter during his second.

On 15 June 2016, Thiego scored a brace in a 3–3 home draw against former club Grêmio.
