Sergio Claudio dos Santos, most commonly known as Serginho, is a Brazilian footballer. Born in June 27, 1971, this energetic player featured for the Italian powerhouse AC Milan but announced his retirement from football at the end of the 2007-2008 season. He played as a winger and had collected 10 international caps for the Brazilian national team.

As an offensive-minded footballer, Serginho was known for his speed and persistence. He could play both wing back and left back. Serginho was nicknamed Il Concorde or The Concorde because of his fast and relentless attacking runs on the pitch.

Serginho started his professional club career as a modest Brazilian side for Itaperuna in 1992. After arching through big Brazilian clubs like Flamengo, Cruzeiro and São Paulo, he transitioned to Italian superpower AC Milan in 1999 and has been in the red and black half of Milan ever since.

Serginho had mostly been a fringe player in all these years at Milan but he had been a very important utility substitute. He scored Milan’s first penalty against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League final penalty-shootout in 2003 but missed during a similar circumstance against Liverpool in the 2007 Champions League final.

In the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup, Serginho represented Brazil and the national team came home with a runners-up medal. The Brazilian team also won the Copa America tournament in the same year. Serginho retired from football altogether at the end of the 2007-2008 season and his final match was against Udinese.
