When you primarily play as a defensive midfielder, but contribute towards 16% of all the goals scored in the league for your club, in the league, midway through a season, it reveals something about the capacity and versatility of you as a player. That's why when Juninho, the Lyon legend, was asked to describe this midfielder- he termed him 'The Versatile.' His interceptions and tackles are well-known aspects of his game. But only a few know that he's very dribbler of the ball, and that he's got a potent drive that lets him take those long shots from outside the area. He has enormous stamina that lets him run the whole length of the pitch tirelessly. This workhorse is also a very good passer of the ball. The samba man signed with Les Gones in the beginning of the 2019 season from Lille OSC, another Ligue 1 outfit. Prior to his Les Dogues adventure, he was playing with São Paulo in Brazil. Details about his youth career is not readily accessible. But from what we know, he used to play with Goiás Esporte Clube, who also gave him his senior debut. This player's twenty-seven years of age, but his case is such that he hasn't represented his country to date in international football. The pool of talent in Brazil is so massive that we can't be sure of if he'll ever get to don the legendary green and yellow kit.
