Ronaldo da Silva Souza (born 23 October 1996), simply known as Ronaldo, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for J1 League club Shimizu S-Pulse.

Club Career


Born in Itu, Sao Paulo, Ronaldo joined Flamengo's youth setup in 2013, from Paulista. He made his first team – and Serie A – debut on 1 November 2015, coming on as a late substitute for Jaja in a 2–0 away loss against Gremio.

On 19 April 2016, after impressing with the under-20s in the year's Copa Sao Paulo de Futebol Junior, Ronaldo renewed his contract until 2020. He was rarely used in the following two campaigns, and was loaned to fellow top tier side Atletico Goianiense on 5 September 2017, until the end of the year.

Atletico Goianiense (loan)

Ronaldo scored his first professional goal on 17 September 2017, netting his team's third in a 3–1 away win against Ponte Preta. After contributing with one goal in nine appearances for Dragao, he returned to Fla ahead of the 2018 campaign, but again featured rarely.

Bahia (loan)

On 9 July 2019 Ronaldo was loaned to Serie A club Bahia through the end of the year.

Shimizu S-Pulse

After the end of contract with Flamengo Ronaldo became a free agent and signed with J1 League club Shimizu S-Pulse on 1 July 2021.
