Daniel Marques Silva is a professional football player from Brazil who plays as a defender. Marques began his playing career at a club in his home town of Jau, Esporte Clube XV de Novembro, in 2000. As part of their youth team, Marques was quite impressive and caught the eye of Ituano Futebol Clube in 2003.
He moved to Palmeiras in 2003 and became a part of the team that won the 2003 Serie B title. However, Marques, himself, played very little part and that meant he would spend 2004 on loan, in search of more playing time. His first loan spell, in 2004, was at Ituano Futebol Clube, following which he moved to America Futebol Clube in the second half of the same year.
In 2005, Marques began the season with a loan spell, moving to Cianorte Futebol Clube before going to Parana Clube in the second half of the season. By this time, Marques had established himself as a fantastic first-team member of the side, playing 38 games for Parana Clube and even scoring twice.
In 2006, Marques was first signed by Internacional but before he could play a single game for the team, he moved to Atletico Mineiro. In the single year that he spent at Atletico, Marques didn’t play too many games but was part of team that won the 2006 Serie B title.
He ended up moving back to Parana Clube in 2007-08, playing 24 games before moving out to Gremio Recreativo Barueri in the latter half of the year. Throughout 2009 and through the early part of 2010, Marques played 41 games in the league, at Barueri, and scored two goals, before moving onto Atletico Goianiense. After just 20 games to end the season, Marques signed up with Mirassol in 2011, before moving back to Barueri in 2011.
