Vagno Celio do Nascimento Silva is a football defender, who retired from professional football in 2003.
He was nicknamed by fans "O Canhao do Brasileirao" (The Cannon of the Brazilian Championship) for his extremely potent right-foot shot. One of his shots was measured at during a test organized by Globo Esporte.
While at Corinthians, Celio Silva agreed a 4m move to Premier League champions Manchester United in July 1997. However, United couldn't obtain a work permit, as the Home Office claimed that, despite Silva being a regular for Brazil for the past two years, he hadn't played enough matches for Brazil, and the move fell through. United bought Henning Berg instead.
