HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from NY Red Bulls on March 2, 2018. Re-signed through 2020 with an option for 2021 on Jan. 29, 2019.
Felipe has been a full-time starter every year of his MLS career since being brought into Montreal, and then again to New York by Jesse Marsch before getting traded to Vancouver prior to the 2018 season. He fits perfectly in the central midfield, with great athleticism to cover ground as he keeps the ball moving quickly.
OUTSIDE MLS: After growing up in an academy in Brazil, Felipe made his professional debut in Italy, where he also holds citizenship. He then spent four years in Switzerland splitting time between FC Winterthur, FC Lugano, and FC Wohlen before transferring to MLS.
NOTES: 2015 Supporters' Shield winner.
