Club career

During his career, Roque Júnior has played for Santarritense, São José, Palmeiras, A.C. Milan, Leeds United F.C., A.C. Siena, Bayer 04 Leverkusen MSV Duisburg and Qatari side Al-Rayyan. He is an iconic footballer for Palmeiras, as he played more than 200 competitive games for them.[1] His greatest success in club football came with playing for A.C. Milan, with whom he won the 2003 UEFA Champions League.

His loan spell at Leeds was extremely mixed. He played 7 games for the club, during which they conceded 24 goals. He also was sent off on his home debut against Birmingham City. However, he did score two goals in a Worthington Cup game against Manchester United (Leeds lost 3-2).[2]

In September 2008 Palmeiras have signed him from Al-Rayyan on loan until the end of the season.[3]

After leaving Palmeiras in November 2008, he has been offered to Australian A-League clubs in April[4] and was in talks with Avaí gaffer Paulo Silas in July,[5] but nothing materialised out of it.

International career

Roque Júnior was successful on the international stage for Brazil, having played 50 games (2 of them weren't official A internationals) and scored 2 goals, and also captaining them on a number of occasions. He did not make it into the Brazilian squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup due to injury.

Personal life

Roque Júnior is devoted to helping São José Esporte Clube's youth players with a project called "Projeto Primeira Camisa" ("Project First Jersey").[6]
