• Left São Paulo for Milan in summer 2003 and helped the Rossoneri to Serie A success in his first season; UEFA Champions League runner-up in 2005 and winner in 2007, when he was top scorer with ten goals, including three in the semi-final against Manchester United FC.

• Sent off at the 2010 FIFA World Cup during Brazil's second group match against the Ivory Coast, but was back in the team for the second round and subsequent 2-1 loss to the Netherlands in the quarter-finals.
