Darcy Dolce Neto, or simply Neto (born February 7, 1981 in São José do Rio Preto), is a Brazilian football right-back. He currently plays for Veria. At Aris, firstly, he was signed by Aris Thessaloniki for three years. His contract was expiring in June 2010 before its eventual extension for another 3 years.


He is a quite short, but agile and technically gifted footballer. Naturally he is a modern and atomic right wing back, but also if needed, can play on right midfield/wing position. He is the first short free-kick taker for Aris, and he has scored five free kicks is his 4 year spell with the Thessalonican side.


At one season, during his spell in Santos, was considered and pronounced as one of the leading right backs in Brazilian league. Also spent a couple of seasons on loan to some clubs in Brazil, before joining Aris 2007. His fee, transferring to Aris, was about 200.000 euros. He immediately established himself into starting line up, replacing another Brazilian full back Tuta from a season before. In summer 2009, was rumoured to be linked to Bolton Wanderers and a couple of more clubs from better leagues in Europe.

On December 8, 2009, he extended his contract up to 2013, which had been about to expire in summer 2010. At post contract-signing press conference, he declared himself as an Aris fan, loving this club. He unofficially rejected offers from a couple of Greek and clubs from abroad, saying that had he ever considered a move from Aris, that would have been only a club out of Greek boundaries, putting an end to any speculation about his potential departure. He is considered as one of club's top and most consistent stars.

At the end of his contract( at 2012–2013 superleague end ) he was very close to signing with APOEL F.C. from Cyprus,but the next couple of days the Cypriots saw him sign with Bahia from Brazil.

On 27 January 2015, Neto returned to Greece as a player of Veria F.C.. He signed a six month contract.[1] He made his official debut in a 0–2 away win against Levadiakos F.C..
