Carlos Eduardo de Fiori Mendes, commonly known as Cadú (born 31 August 1986), is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Balzan in the Maltese Premier League. He is known for being the record-holder of most game appearances of any foreigner who has ever played for Red Star Belgrade.

Early career

Born in Andradina, Brazil, Cadú started his senior career in his homeland by playing with Campinas Futebol Clube and Porto Alegre. He left Brazil and moved to Montenegro in summer 2007 by joining Montenegrin First League side FK Zeta where he will play the following two seasons.

Red Star Belgrade

Cadú and Sávio had been teammates since 2007, first in Porto Alegre then in Zeta, when both were signed by Serbian side Red Star Belgrade in June 2009. Cadú signed a four-year contract with Red Star, earning €200,000 per season. Cadú played an important role in Red Star's matches during the qualification for the UEFA Europa League since he joined the team in 2009. His first goal for Red Star Belgrade in any UEFA league was scored against Dinamo Tbilisi in the second qualifying round of the Europa League. In the third qualifying round of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League qualifying phase and play-off round, he scored a goal against Slovan Bratislava. In a Belgrade Derby match on May 5, 2012, Red Star won against its eternal rival Partizan by 1–0, with Cadú scoring the decisive 90th minute goal from over 20 meters out. By the end of his career at Red Star he was the most scoring foreign player in Red Star Belgrade's history.

Sheriff Tiraspol

Cadú joined Sheriff Tiraspol on June 17, 2013, through a bosman move after his contract at Red Star wasn't renewed. In the 2013-14 UEFA Champions League second qualifying round, Cadú scored his first goal for Sheriff in a 5-0 win against FK Sutjeska Nikšić. He played as a starting player throughout Sheriff's 2013-14 Europa League group stage campaign, and scored a goal against Tromsø in Tiraspol. On March 21, 2016, Cadú left Sheriff abruptly due to a family circumstance.
