_____________________________________________

He played left-back with Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas and the Brazilian national team. He played the Football World Cup 1974. He was a skillful and innovative left lateral who was considered at the time one of the top players at his position. He was a complete player who was strong on defense but also enjoyed joining the attack and did so very effectively, and is considered a pioneer, becoming very influential in helping the lateral position evolve into what it is in today's Brazilian football.

He travelled the world and played for many different clubs in Brazil, the USA and Germany, always showing great skill and quality, but not settling anywhere for too long. His longest stint was at Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas where he stayed four years from 1972 to 1976. In 1981 at São Paulo FC he won the Paulista title.

In 1991, he was hired to coach the El Paso Patriots, an amateur team competing in the Southwest Independent Soccer League.[1]

he looks like 70's porn star

also lol at the idea of him being Brazil's best ever LB
i know in person a lot of brazilians consider him better than Roberto Carlos for exemple.


He played for COSMOS with Pelé, Platini, Beckenbauer, Cruyff.

you have no idea what you are talking about

theres a lot of players underrated, considering only the main sources of information, such as official awards.

there's a lot of things hidden in history.

P.S.: i noticed u stopped being harsh on me since i put ambrosio's pic on my avatar. did she calm you down? I'm using Gestalt with you.

Well not gonna compare him with other Brazilan and World legends, just watched a youtube clip(ofcourse clips dont justify the opinion) of him seems like a good fullback with good runs and good passing skills. Especially the passing skills I liked from this video:

I do not like right footed left backs but he will do. Try and find the Colombia 1977 game in the Maracana when we won 6-0 and he scored 2 corkers. We wore blue that day - unusually at home. Worth seeing.

I thought his nickname was "white avalanche"?

After that 1974 defeat in the WC to Poland, Leao (goalkeeper) whacked him in the changing rooms for attacking too much and leaving Lato to do what he wanted.
