His performance was criticised by manager Felix Magath. As a result, Naldo was demoted to the second team. Magath would be sacked after only five points in eight matches (and no goals and points in the last four games). After that, Naldo returned to the first team. Despite suffering from a hamstring injury, Naldo made thirty-one appearances and scored six times.
In the 2013–14 season, Naldo started the season well when he scored his first goal of the season in a 4–0 win over Schalke 04 on 17 August 2013. Naldo then was given a captaincy in number of games.

But the move was rejected by Werder Bremen and he was convinced to stay by Schaaf after expressing he desire to leave. After making his return, Naldo scored in a 2–2 draw against Borussia Mönchengladbach on 10 April 2012.
After the 2011–12 season ended, Naldo's future at Werder Bremen was uncertain despite he was intent keen staying. In May, Naldo revealed that the club had not yet received offers for him.
Ahead of the 2009–10 season, Naldo was linked with a move to Ligue 1 side Olympique de Marseille The transfer speculation ended when he signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until 2013. Manager Thomas Schaaf was delighted with Naldo's new deal due to the fact that he was then considered as a key player at Werder Bremen. Naldo started the season well when he scored his first goal of the season, in a 5–0 win over Union Berlin. However, Naldo suffered a thigh injury and missed the first two matches of the opening season. Upon his return, Naldo scored two goals in two matches, with both games a victory against Borussia Mönchengladbach and Hertha. On 20 March 2010, Naldo captained Werder Bremen for the first time against Bochum and provided an assist to one of the goals in a 3–2 win. In the first leg of the fourth round of Europa League, he scored twice in a 6–3 win over Aktobe and the club would go through to the group stage in a 2–0 win in the second leg. In the DFB-Pokal, Naldo scored three goals in the competition and the club reached the final. In the final, against Bayern Munich, he started in the central defence with Per Mertesacker, in a 4–0 loss.
Towards the end of the 2009–10 season, Naldo sustained a serious knee injury in a match against Wolfsburg on 17 April 2010, after a challenge with Grafite. He suffered a bone edema on the right knee, but recovered after taking painkillers, and played the remaining fixtures for the club, but the injury then caused him to miss the entire 2010–11 season. He had many surgeries in Germany but went back to Brazil to have the surgery on his knee, after the club's management was against having German doctors. He was operated on by the Brazil national football team physician, José Luiz Runco. An operation on his knee revealed that he damaged his cartilage. This injury would take at least nine months to recover and the doctors feared that the cartilage damage could later lead to other knee problems.
In the 2008–09 season, Naldo scored with his right foot his first goal of the season in a 5–2 win over Bayern Munich, the first time Bremen won at the Allianz Arena. Naldo soon suffered a setback due to injuries during the season, as well as receiving a red card on 1 March 2009 against Bayern Munich. In the UEFA Cup round of sixteen, he scored the only goal in the first leg win over Saint-Étienne. He scored in the 2009 UEFA Cup Final to level the game at 1–1, however his team went on to lose the game 2–1 to Shakhtar Donetsk after extra time. After the match, Naldo was seen crying uncontrollably. At the end of the season, Naldo played in all but six of Bremen's Bundesliga games in 2008–09 season, in seven of their eight Champions League fixtures, and all of the UEFA Cup fixtures. Despite not winning the UEFA Cup, the club would, nevertheless, win the DFB-Pokal after beating Bayer Leverkusen 1–0.
In the 2007–08 season, Naldo remained in the first team spotlight, where he formed a partnership with Per Mertesacker and scored his first goal of the season in a 1–1 draw against Schalke 04 on 27 October 2007. During the 2007–08 season, Naldo was involved in an incident at training after clashing with Boubacar Sanogo. However, manager Schaaf played down the incident. Once again, Naldo played in all but two of Bremen's Bundesliga games in the 2007–08 season, due to suspension, and in all their Champions League fixtures, along with two in Champions League qualifiers.
In March 2007, Naldo was called up by his then Brazil Manager Dunga for the Brazil squad. Despite not playing, Naldo was then included in Brazil's squad for the Copa América, which Brazil went on to win, once again defeating Argentina in the final. Naldo made his full debut in England's first match at the new Wembley Stadium on 1 June 2007 as they drew 1–1 with England.
He plays as a versatile two-footed central defender. He stands at 1.98 metres tall and this height, combined with his jumping and heading ability, makes him a big threat in aerial contests. He is also well known for his set piece skill and according to Dunga, who coached him at the 2007 Copa América, he can hit the ball in excess of 60 mph using the cannonball free kick method, associated with other fellow Brazilians such as Roberto Carlos, Alex, David Luiz and Adriano.
In the 2006–07 season, Naldo started the season well and scored his first goal in a 6–0 win over Bochum on 14 October 2006.

Naldo scored his first UEFA Champions League goal in a 2–0 win over Levski Sofia on 18 October 2006. The third place in the Champions League group stage secured Werder Bremen a place in the UEFA Cup. In Bremen's first game in the competition, he scored in a 3–1 first-leg win over Ajax which helped Bremen reach the next round despite losing 3–1 in the second leg. The club advanced through the knock-out stage until they were eliminated in the semi-final by Espanyol. With one game left at the end of the season, Naldo scored an own goal, which handed victory to Eintracht Frankfurt, in a 2–1 loss. Just as in his first season, Naldo played in all but two of Bremen's Bundesliga games in 2006–07 season, as well as in every European fixture. At the end of the season, Naldo extended his contract with the club until 2012.
His talent in Brazil led to Naldo signing with Werder Bremen in the summer of 2005, to replace Valérien Ismaël who left for Bayern Munich for €3 million and shortly after was given the number four shirt. Furthermore, he was capable of playing across the back line. In the opening game of the season, Naldo made his debut in a 5–2 win over Arminia Bielefeld. His first goal came in November 2005, in a 6–1 win over Wolfsburg. After missing one match, due to injury, Naldo scored his second goal of the season, in a 4–1 win over FC Köln on 11 December 2005.
