Born in the city of Itaquaquecetuba (SP), in 1970, Cafu was formed at the base of São Paulo, the club through which he made his professional debut. In 1994 he was sold to Real Zaragoza, from Spain, and then played for Youth, at the time sponsored by Parmalat. The deal aimed at transferring the player to the palm trees.
After staying at Alviverde for three years, being part of the team that won the Paulistan 1996, the right-back made history in Italy. First, he played for Roma, the club for which he was national champion in the 2000/01 season.

In 2003 he moved to Milan, where he won a A league (2003/04), a Champions League (2006/07) and a Club World Cup (2007). Cafu retired from the Milan club in 2008.
Happy birthday to our original flying wing-back 🤩
Congratulations Cafu 🎉
