The young attacking midfielder is an academy product of Brazilian club Paranaense and made his breakthrough with the first team in 2013. He was loaned to Chennaiyin FC for the inaugural season of the Hero ISL and he made an instant impact.
The youngster showed plenty of character to step up for an injured Elano. Pelissari only played 611 minutes but proved his quality with four goals. His goal against Kerala Blasters FC sealed Chennaiyin FC's spot in the semi-finals. Season 2 saw him continue his fine form as he helped the Super Machans to the prestigious Hero ISL trophy. Pelissari scored thrice and also provided an assist for Marco Materazzi's men along the way. The third season of the Hero ISL saw him join Delhi Dynamos FC.
