After starting his career with Sao Paulo, Uvini’s first experience of European football was an unsuccessful loan in 2011 with Tottenham Hotspur. A move then followed to Napoli, but the centre back only made one appearance for the Serie A side, whilst spending time with Siena and back home in Brazil with Santos.

Uvini has three caps for the Brazilian national team.
