A professional football player from Brazil, Leandson Dias da Silva, commonly known as Rico, plays as a striker. Rico began his playing career at a lower division side called Centro Sportivo Alagoano, an institution for sporting development, in 2001. In 2002, he moved to the Sao Paolo first team, playing 34 games and scoring 7 goals, most of which came during substitute appearances.

He would spend a short bit of his 2002-03 spell at Portuguesa Santista, especially in 2003, before moving to Gremio in 2004. After 14 games with Gremio, Rico moved to the lower divisions in search of regular football, signing up with Criciuma in 2005, before moving to Portuguesa Santista, permanently, later that same year.

In 2005, Rico would pick Bahrain as his destination for playing football, signing up with Muharraq Club and playing 79 times over 6 seasons, scoring 73 goals. He was scoring prolifically, and earned a move to Bahrain Riffa Club where he scored another 10 goals in 12 appearances. He led Muharraq to the league title in his final season at the club, a fitting end to a stint that was only going upwards!

In 2011, he moved to Manama but never managed to get too much playing time with the side. In the end, he left Bahrain in 2012, and returned to Brazil to sign with Clube Nautico Capibaribe where he re-starts his struggles to find a regular starting spot in the first team.
