The Brazilian defender Ebert William Amansio, better known as Betao knew that he may leave his Motherland for a big country called Russia. Being a president of Lokomotiv Moscow football club in 2007 Yuriy Semin went to São Paulo. He wanted to see personally how Betão played and offer him to move to Russia. Having come to preliminary agreement with a player Semin came back to Moscow. Almost one year later the Russian coach became the manager of Dynamo Kyiv. He still wanted to have Betão in his team. As a result the Brazilian defender moved to the capital of Ukraine.

Paulista sounds great!

Betão was born in São Paulo. There was a wide range of football clubs for him to choose. He gave preference to Corinthians. Betão spent 14 years in this club and even became the team captain in 2005. He won all important Brazilian trophies with Corinthians. On the 6th of August 2007 Betão made a contract with French Sochaux-Montbéliard football club. But he did not play a match for this team and soon came back to Brazil to play for Santos. Having spent 4 months there Betão moved to Kyiv where Yuriy Semin was waiting for him.

He was waited for in Kyiv

The long-awaited meeting of Betão with Yuriy Semin took place in June 2008 in Kyiv. Unlike his first voyage to Europe Betão knew that he was waited for. Semin wanted him to play in his team. So the period of adaptation was rather short. In Betão’s first season in Dynamo our team won the national championship and played well in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Cup.
The 2010/ 11 season was less successful for Dynamo. Betão thinks that the reason for that was the change of the manager. The new coached changed the way Dynamo played which was not very useful for the team. Besides he was too emotional which influenced players in a bad way.
In summer 2011 Betão could have returned to Brazil. There were some offers from Botafogo and Flamengo. Betão’s desire to come back home was especially strong during the period when he was a substitute more often. His wife who gave birth to a child also wanted to come back to Brazil.
Betão considers the results of the first half of 2011/12 season to be rather successful for Dynamo. The team let through only 8 goals in Ukrainian Premier League. Still the attack was less successful.
Having spent two years in Kyiv Betão learned to play as a central defender. He also speaks Russian very well. He wants to play for Dynamo as long as his contract is valid (till summer 2014). Betão wants to be useful for our team.
