Laionel Silva Ramalho, simply known as Laionel (born 27 April 1986), is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Guarani Futebol Clube as a forward.

Football career

Born in Campos Belos, Goiás, Laionel started playing football with two local outfits, lowly Vila Nova Futebol Clube and Grêmio Esportivo Inhumense. In the 2007 summer, he moved to Portugal with Boavista FC.

After Boavista's demotion due to irregularities, Laionel stayed in the country, signing with another modest outfit in the top division, Vitória de Setúbal, for the 2008–09 campaign. Again, he struggled to find the net, even though he received a fair amount of playing time, but his team avoided a drop this time.

Laionel was loaned for a season to Spain's UD Salamanca, with the Segunda División club retaining a 175.000 buying option at the season's close. As the Castile and León side barely avoided relegation, he did not manage to score in the league, appearing in less than half of the matches.

In early July 2010 Laionel returned to Portugal, being loaned to Académica de Coimbra from Grémio Anápolis (formerly Inhumense), in a season-long move.[1] On 15 August he scored his first official goal in more than one year, netting from 35 metres in the 93rd minute to help shock-defeat title holders S.L. Benfica 2–1 away from home.[2]

On 11 July 2011, Laionel moved to freshly-promoted team Gil Vicente FC, after his contract with Grêmio expired. On 12 August, in the season opener, again he stripped Benfica of points, scoring once to help the Barcelos outfit come from behind 0–2 to earn a point at home;[3] in late January 2012, however, he signed for FC Astra Ploiești in Romania.[4]
