BiographyEdit

Marquinhos started his professional career in Spain with Segunda División side CD Ourense.[1] Then he played with several Brazilian and Japanese teams. He became the J. League Top Scorer top scorer in the 2008 season with 21 goals to his name as Kashima Antlers won the title for the second year in a row.

Marquinhos was awarded J. League Most Valuable Player on 22 December 2008, becoming the second Antlers player to win the highest J.League award after former Brazilian star Jorginho.[2]

On 22 January 2011, Marquinhos left Kashima to join Vegalta Sendai on a permanent deal but left that club on 9 April 2011, suffering emotional instability from the deadly earthquake and tsunami on 11 March.[3] He played for Sendai in only one league match.

On 11 January 2012, Marquinhos returned to the Japanese League to sign with his former club Yokohama F. Marinos.
