Carlos César Sampaio Campos, (born 31 March 1968 in São Paulo) is a Brazilian former footballer, and is the current Football Director of Palmeiras, where he played from 1991 to 1994 and from 1999 to 2000. He retired as a player in 2004.

César Sampaio is one of the few players who played for the 4 major clubs from São Paulo (Santos, Palmeiras, Corinthians and São Paulo) and one of the greatest idols from Palmeiras' history.

He won the Bola de Ouro (Brazilian Golden Ball award) twice, in 1990 and 1993, and joined the Brazil national football team during the Copa América in 1993, but was not part of the team during the FIFA World Cup finals in neither 1990 nor 1994.

He was later also part of the Brazilian squad that won both the Copa América and FIFA Confederations Cup in 1997, and played for Brazil at the 1998 FIFA World Cup finals, where he made six appearances in the team's run to the final, which they lost to the hosts of the tournament, France.[1] At the 1998 FIFA World Cup finals, he became remembered for scoring the first goal of the entire tournament in the 4th minute of Brazil's opening match against Scotland, a header from a corner on the left. He also scored a brace in Brazil's 4–1 victory against Chile in the round of 16 during the same tournament.

Sampaio is also remembered for helping Ronaldo when he suffered a convulsive fit in the night before the 1998 FIFA World Cup final.

César Sampaio has recently said that he wants to become a manager and he is starting his coaching badges.
