Moacir Bastos, usually known simply as Tuta (born June 20, 1974) is a Brazilian football (soccer) forward[1] who plays for Taboão da Serra.

Club career[edit]

Born in Palmital, São Paulo, during his career, he played for several clubs, most of them from Brazil: Araçatuba in 1994, 1995 and 1996, XV de Piracicaba in 1995, Juventude in 1996, Guarulhos in 1996, Paulista in 1997 and 1998, Portuguesa in 1997, Atlético Paranaense in 1998, Vitória in 1999, Flamengo in 2000 and 2002, Palmeiras in 2000 and 2001, Coritiba in 2004, and Fluminense, in 2005 and 2006.[1]

He played for three non-Brazilian teams, Venezia, of Italy, in 1998-99, FC Seoul then known as Anyang LG Cheetahs of South Korea, K League, in 2002 and Suwon Samsung Bluewings, also of South Korea, in 2003.

On January 24, 1999, he became well known after scoring a goal in the last minute in the 2-1 S.S.C. Venezia victory against Bari. Many Venezia players did not celebrate the goal or the victory, raising suspicions that the match was fixed to end in a draw. Tuta told the press that he had suspected a deal to end the match in a draw. However, on January 27, he denied his previous affirmation, justifying it as a misinterpretation by the press due to his limited capacity of speaking the Italian language.[2]
