Formed at Corinthians, Carlinhos played for small clubs in São Paulo such as Oeste, Novorizontino, Juventus, São Caetano and Santo André. In Rio, he had two spells at Audax. In his first season for Nova Iguaçu, the striker played in 13 games, scored nine goals and provided one assist.

At Flamengo, Carlinhos will arrive to be an option on the bench for Pedro. Gabigol, 27, is suspended because he was suspended for two years for trying to cheat on an anti-doping test. Despite this, Rubro-Negro trusts that he will be able to reverse the penalty and registered the number 10 in the Libertadores.
