Brazilian football/soccer player who plays for Cypriot club Anorthosis Famagusta FC as a defensive midfielder.
João Victor started his career in Brazil with Clube Náutico Capibaribe, Associação Desportiva São Caetano and Treze Futebol Clube, helping the first club promote to Série A in 2006. In 2009, he joined compatriot Luiz Felipe Scolari at Uzbekistan's FC Bunyodkor.
On 26 August 2010, both Victor and fellow Brazilian Ratinho – his former teammate at Bunyodkor – signed a five-year deal with RCD Mallorca in Spain, following a successful trial. The former made his La Liga debut on 26 September in a 2–0 home win against Real Sociedad, and finished his first season with 32 games (21 starts) as the Balearic Islands side narrowly avoided relegation.
On 7 October 2012, after just 15 minutes of an eventual 1–2 home loss to Granada CF, João Victor ruptured the cruciate ligament on his right knee, being sidelined for the remainder of the campaign. He remained out of action until July 2014, and renewed his contract with the Bermellones for two further years on 21 August.
In the summer of 2015, João Victor left for Cyprus, joining Anorthosis Famagusta FC.
