Andre Vinicius is a professional football player from Brazil who plays as a defender. In 2006, Andre began his playing career at the Corinthians’ youth academy and became a strong player on the youth academy squad. In 2010, Andre found himself being called up to the first team squad at Corinthians, but he failed to make any appearances, playing only for the reserve team.
The same year, his youth team performances got him into the Brazilian Under-20 national team, although he was still struggling at the highest level. The 2006 Campeonato Infantil title winner was sent out on loan to Nacional Atletico Clube, on a loan spell, in 2010.
Since then, Andre has returned to the first team, although he has yet to make an appearance for the first team on a regular basis, but that didn’t stop him from winning the 2011 Serie A title with the team.
