Still, it was not until 2015 when he signed. a professional contract with Corinthians after impressing everyone with a brilliant performance in Santos’ U17.
His career start
His beginnings in football were not as everyone imagined; at Santos, he practiced futsal from 6 to 14 years old. When he was 11 years old, he began to practice soccer 11, but he maintained both modalities until they made him choose between one or the other and, he opted for soccer 11 at age 14. He was at Santos until he was 18 years old when a disagreement with management led him to find another team.
In 2015 Corinthians signed him but, Claudinho did not have a minute in that championship with the first team; Corinthians was champion of the Brazilian tournament that year.
His second year at Corinthians was not very good either; he only had the opportunity to play 5 minutes with the Paulista A1 Cup game. So, he accepts the opportunity to go on loan to Bragantino from Serie B of Brazilian soccer. After 20 games without scoring a goal, he changed his scene again through a loan to Santo André, wherein 16 games he scored 4 goals and gave 1 assist.
After ending his contract with Corinthians in 2017, he was released and signed by Porte Preta, a Serie A team. In this team, he played 20 games and only gave 2 assists.
His poor performance earned him to get out of loan again to two teams in a year, first to Red Bull Brasil, where he played the Paulista Cup and the Paulista A1 Championship in 2018. Then, that same year he was loaned to the Oeste of Serie B. Between the two teams, he adds 40 games, with 4 goals and 3 assists.
Then the merger between Red Bull Brazil and Bragantino took place, and Claudinho was again loaned to the Serie B team, Red Bull Bragantino; this helped the team achieve a promotion to Serie A played 35 games and scored 10 goals, and gave 11 assists.
Finally, in the 2019/2020 season, Red Bull Bragantino took over Claudinho’s file and began playing full-time with the team. In this team, Claudinho achieved the consistency that he desired and is a fundamental piece for the team today.
