Wladimir Rodrigues dos Santos (born 29 August 1954 in São Paulo) was a former football (soccer) player in the left back role.

As a player, Wladimir had a long and distinguished career, best remembered for his time at Corinthians, becoming one of the most highly regarded defenders this team has ever produced.

He won four São Paulo State Championships (in 1977, 1979, 1982 and 1983) and is the most capped player in Corinthians history with 803 matches played.

In 1998 Federação Paulista de Futebol named him in the Paulista League all-time best XI, alongside players like Rivelino, Ademir da Guia, Pelé, Djalma Santos and others.[1]

He was also named, by Placar Magazine, as the best left back in Corinthians history.[2]
