Anselmo Vendrechovski Júnior (September 16, 1982), known as Juninho, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for the Liga MX club Tigres UANL. He holds Mexican citizenship.

A centre back, Juninho is considered as one of the top defenders of the Liga MX praised for his low-profile, quality, professionalism and leadership.[1] The captain of Tigres, he is also a set-piece and penalty-kick specialist, with a powerful shooting and a remarkable ability to score goals.


His great-grandparents were from Poland.[2] He spent his early career with Coritiba. On 2005, he was signed by Botafogo. He was transferred on 2008 to São Paulo after accepting a three year offer on December 7, 2007.[3] On January 2009 he was released to sign back with his former club Botafogo, but Tigres UANL from Mexico offered him a better contract, and since 2010 he plays in Mexico. In early 2010 he played for Suwon Bluewings on loan. His first goal with Tigres was against Santos Laguna, on a free kick, at the 8th minute, this was the only goal of the game, as it ended 1 - 0 on a Tigres' win. He became a key player for the Apertura 2011 championship of Tigres. He is the current captain of the team.
