Cícero João de Cézare, nicknamed Cicinho, (Portuguese pronunciation: [siˈsĩɲu]; (born 24 June 1980) in Pradópolis, São Paulo, Brazil), is a Brazilian footballer, who plays for Sivasspor.

He married longtime girlfriend, Reem Borriello in Rome; the two have one son, Heitor. However they split and he married two more times, the last one in 2012 to Marry de Andrade in Brazil.

Club career[edit]

In 2005, he won the Club World Cup while playing for São Paulo. After that, he joined Real Madrid.

Real Madrid[edit]

In the 2006–07 season, Cicinho suffered an extensive injury to his ACL and missed over six months.[1] His comeback, to not only the pitch, but also the starting lineup, was marked on Sunday, 29 April 2007, against Athletic Bilbao. He assisted Ruud van Nistelrooy's first goal with a cross, and played a part in van Nistelrooy's second goal as well. Real Madrid went on to win the game 4–1.[2]

In the 2007–08 pre-season, the full back received less playing time at Real Madrid under new coach Bernd Schuster. Michel Salgado and Sergio Ramos were used on the right during most of Real's pre-season, and Cicinho therefore requested a transfer to A.S. Roma who had been following him for some time.[3]

AS Roma[edit]

On 22 August 2007, Cicinho signed for Roma for a fee up to €11 million.[4] Cicinho signed a five-year contract with the capital club worth from €3.6M in the first year up to €4 million in the last year (in gross salary, i.e. include tax), with additional bonuses.[5][6]

He made his official debut in a Roma jersey on the first matchday of Serie A against Palermo, as a substitute for Ludovic Giuly in the second half. Roma went on to win the game 2–0.[7]

2010 loan to S.Paulo[edit]

On 9 February 2010, Cicinho joined São Paulo on loan until on 30 June 2010.[8] This loan came after a 2009–10 season in which Cicinho received less playing time under new manager Claudio Ranieri in favor of Marco Cassetti and Marco Motta.

2011[edit]

On 13 January 2011, he returned to Spain; this time joining Villarreal on loan until the end of the season.[9]

2011-12[edit]

In 2011-12 season Cicinho returned to Roma. He was the third choice for right back behind Marco Cassetti and Aleandro Rosi. He played only 2 matches in a 2011-12 season, first against Siena and second against Fiorentina in which he was a starter. His contract expired on 30 June, and he returned to Brazil.

Sivasspor[edit]

After playing for Villarreal CF and Sport Recife of Brazil, Cicinho, in July 2013, signed with Sivasspor of Turkey, by coach Roberto Carlos, who claimed his signing for club.[10] After one year, Cicinho has became a key player, and, in April 2014, he renewed his contract with club of Sivas for more two years.[11]

International career[edit]

He was part of the Brazil national team that won the 2005 Confederations Cup and was one of the 23 players chosen to represent Brazil in the 2006 World Cup.
