Club: Club: SSC Napoli



Careca began his footballing career in his home state of São Paulo with local side Guarani in 1978. With his finishing ability and devastating pace quickly established himself as one of his country's best young strikers. With Guarani, he won the Brazilian Championship during his first season and the Brazilian Second Division in 1981.

By 1983 he had been signed by São Paulo, he continued to gather notoriety because of his impressive goals to games ratio and by 1986, Careca led São Paulo to the Brazilian Championship, beating his former club Guarani in the final. He was awarded Bola de Ouro the same year, which is the Brazilian equivalent of Footballer of the Year.
Move to Napoli
In the summer of 1987 Careca moved to Italian Serie A champions Napoli, where he was part of the "Ma-Gi-Ca" forward lineup with Bruno Giordano and Diego Maradona[1]. Careca's first season at Napoli was an unsuccessful one, despite his 13 goals: the team were knocked out in the first round of the European Cup by Real Madrid. and they lost the title in the final games of the season.
However, his second season was far more successful. The team won the UEFA Cup, with Careca scoring a memorable lobbed goal in the final, and finished second in Serie A. In 1990 Careca finally won the Scudetto with Napoli, in what would prove to be effectively Maradona's final season with the club. Careca would spend a further three years with Napoli, establishing a partnership with Gianfranco Zola, during which Napoli failed to win any silverware.
Later stages of playing career
In 1993 Careca left Italy to play for new Japanese J. League team Kashiwa Reysol. Careca spent four years with the team, during which time he helped them to promotion to the J1 league in 1994. He returned to Brazil in 1997 with Santos, he spent a year with the club before joining the lower-league team São José (RS), where he finished his career in 1999.

Careca retired having played 60 games for Brazil, and scored 29 goals. Careca did briefly come out of retirement in 2005 to play for Simon Clifford's Garforth Town in the English Northern Counties East Premier League.
International career
Careca first broke into the national side of Brazil during 1982, but was forced to miss the 1982 World Cup in Spain due to an injury.
It was during the 1986 World Cup, in Mexico, that Careca really established himself in world football. He ended the tournament, during which Brazil were memorably eliminated by France at the quarter-final stage, with five goals, placing him second in the Golden Boot rankings behind England’s Gary Lineker. In 1990, Careca was part of the Brazilian team that was defeated by Argentina in the second round. His last cap was earned in August 1993.

Careca was a huge absence in the Brazil National Football Team in 82, due to an injury in his knee. Many people had criticized the presence of Serginho Chulapa in Spain because he was not as good as Careca, Reinaldo or even Dinamite.
Careca used to say he owned 10% of Napoli while Maradona owned 90% of the team. By the way, they made a great pair.

He was a type of striker who could have played now too...he was complete, deadly in the box, extremely fast and endowed with a topl class technique, strong and dangerous at headers. He certainly took advantage of the presence of Maradona but Diego himself always said he was the best teammate he ever had to play with because he can technicaly speak the same language on the pitch....

Yeah but you overdid it Crisfar, he didn't dribble that much and his touch was great but not magical, i guess you could lower both DA and technique to 85 and 87 respectively. Fabiano has those characteristics - except the pace of course and the heading ability is not the same - and he's not rated so highly, Torres has them too. The thing that made them work so well was that Careca could read and interpret all that creativity because he was south american too, and sadly there's no stat for that.

And why give him P03 - Trickster if he only has CF as a registred position? S14 - Speed Merchant is not needed as well.

Updated with a tweaked Crisfar's new set: viewtopic.php?f=1011&t=25607&hilit=CARECA&start=40

He was awesome in the air though so im partial with Konamis ratings for header/jump as well as higher shot power. Maybe a bit faster over distance too.

Thanks for the updated set but I think jump/header are overrated now, he displaied good aerial ability but not on orange level though IMO...I would also like explanations on Ment and TW values that look very high...

It's an editor bug...I think. Most of Classic players have the same problem.
