Football career

After started playing with Guarani Futebol Clube, Silva moved to Clube Atlético Bragantino in 1990, where he spent the following two seasons. Subsequently, he was snapped by Spain's Deportivo de La Coruña, for 250 million pesetas (approximately 1.6 million), arriving at the same time as countryman Bebeto.

With the Galicians, Silva was an everpresent fixture, only suspensions and injuries preventing him from being cast into the starting XI (in 2004–05 he only appeared in six league matches and, already 36, was limited to 20 in his final year), as he helped the club to one league, two cups and two supercups, adding to this the club's five participations in the UEFA Champions League, reaching the semifinals in 2003–04: after a 0–0 draw at F.C. Porto, he missed the second leg due to suspension, and Depor lost 0–1.

On May 22, 2005, after 13 years with Deportivo, Silva was replaced by longtime understudy Aldo Duscher during a 0–3 home loss against RCD Mallorca, bidding farewell to the club and football (in the same match as another club legend, Fran). With Brazil, he collected 58 caps in 10 years, playing all the matches and minutes (safe for the second half of the group stage match against Sweden) in the nation's victorious campaign at the 1994 FIFA World Cup.
