Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Vicente would play his early career in Brazil where he would predominantly play for lower league side AA Flamengo in the Campeonato Paulista Série A3 division. He was also then loaned out to another regional lower league side Caxias FC where he played for one season in the Campeonato Catarinense Second Level.[1]

Move to China[edit]

Vicente would move to China to join the second tier football club Wuhan Guanggu in the 2004 league season where he had a successful period with them when he won the Chinese Football Association Jia League title and helped them win promotion.[2] The following season would see Vicente continue his successful time with Wuhan when he won the Chinese Super League cup in 2005 to add further silverware with the team. His performances with Wuhan would attract the interests of Inter Shanghai who he would join for the 2006 league season, however after only one season he would return to Wuhan. This time at the club he would not become as an integral member within the team and returned to Inter Shanghai who had changed its name to Shaanxi Chan-Ba. In March 2010, Vicente who had previously been linked to Jiangsu Sainty and Shenyang Dongjin moved to Shanghai Shenhua as a free agent.[3]
