Argélico Fucks (born 4 September 1974), commonly known as Argel, is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a central defender, and the current coach of Figueirense Futebol Clube.

Club career[edit]

Argel was born in Santa Rosa, Rio Grande do Sul. In his country he played for Sport Club Internacional, Santos FC and Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, with a brief stint in Japan in between and an unsuccessful spell at Portugal's F.C. Porto, which finished after a serious run-in with the board of directors, and prompted his Brazil return.[1]

In 2001 he returned to Portugal with S.L. Benfica, which he helped win the league in his fourth season and the domestic supercup, the former after an 11-year drought (with the player contributing with ten games and one goal).

After falling down the stoppers' pecking order at Benfica, Argel had an unassuming six-month stay at Racing de Santander, going on to retire in 2007 after representing Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, Canoas Sport Club and China's Zhejiang Lucheng FC.

After his retirement he started a managerial career, first being hired as Guaratinguetá Futebol's head coach on 8 February 2008,[2] being sacked exactly one year later.[3] Three days later, he was hired by Sociedade Esportiva e Recreativa Caxias do Sul.[4]

On 2 June 2009 Argel was hired by Campinense Clube in the same capacity, replacing Fernando Teixeira.[5] On 9 April of the following year, he signed for Criciúma Esporte Clube.[6]

International career[edit]

Argel represented Brazil internationally at the under-20 level, winning both the South American Youth Championship and the FIFA U-20 World Cup.[7]

On 29 March 1995 he gained his only cap for the full side, appearing in a friendly with Honduras.

Surname[edit]

Some of Argel's fame stems from his surname, which is a form of the English word "fuck". This led to some double entendre headlines including one from Eurosport.com titled "Fucks off to Benfica".[8]

This headline received press coverage itself with The Register calling it "snappy and eye-catching", and football humour site Laugh FC deeming it "one of the all time greats".[9]
