In his career, the professional footballer passed through some of the main Brazilian regional teams, played in the Brazilian soccer team, and also succeeded in his international career in countries such as Spain, Germany, and Qatar.

Some of his main titles and achievements include winning two Copa America and two FIFA Confederations Cups and being part of the 2006 FIFA World Cup All-Star Team. Participating in the Champions League and La Liga when playing in Real Madrid; two FIFA World Cup with the Brazilian national team. Last but not least, four Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich.
