Career

He played in an "old fashioned" left sided forward position (even though he is best with right foot, which is uncommon for left sided positions) with São Paulo, the Brazilian national team and Cruzeiro. His position was that of making passes, serving and assisting, but he would also work as a striker in almost every game, mostly in counter-attacks, or moving from the left side.

He was in 56 games with the Brazilian national team, from 1986 against Germany to 1998 against Yugoslavia. He participated in the 1986, 1990, and 1994 editions of the FIFA World Cup, and was part of the 1994 champion Brazil squad.[1]

He is one of São Paulo's all-time leading scorers with 158 goals. With the club he won the Intercontinental Cup in 1993 as he scored the third goal against AC Milan in Tokyo. He retired as a footballer to become a television commentator in 2004.[2]

He is the brother of another footballer, Cocada.
