Djalma Feitosa Dias (born 9 December 1970), aka Djalminha [diʒawˈmĩj̃ɐ], is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as an attacking midfielder.

Blessed with superb skills but also a troublesome character he represented, among others, Flamengo and Deportivo de La Coruña, and was also a Brazil international.

Club career[edit]

Brazil[edit]

Son of former footballer Djalma Dias, Djalminha (literally little Djalma) was born in Santos, São Paulo, while his father was playing for Santos FC. However, he started his career at Clube de Regatas do Flamengo, the most popular club based in Rio de Janeiro.

Afterwards, he would have short stints with Guarani Futebol Clube and Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras (where he received the Bola de Ouro (Brazilian Golden Ball) award in 1996), with a short-lived Japanese adventure with Shimizu S-Pulse in between.

Deportivo[edit]

In July 1997, he joined Deportivo de La Coruña in the Spanish La Liga, and proceeded to score 26 league goals in 87 appearances in his first three seasons, largely contributing to the team's first-ever national championship conquest, in 2000. After that, the emergence of Juan Carlos Valerón, signed upon Atlético Madrid's relegation, and a May 2002 bust-up during training with Depor manager Javier Irureta,[1] prompted his loan in 2002–03 to Austrian Bundesliga side FK Austria Wien.[2]

After just 11 appearances for Deportivo in 2003–04, Djalminha finished his career with Mexico's Club América, retiring at 34.

Indoor football[edit]

In 2008, Djalminha returned to Depor, joining its indoor football team, alongside club greats Donato, Fran, Noureddine Naybet and Jacques Songo'o.[3]

International career[edit]

The stiff competition in Brazil in Djalminha's position, combined with his somewhat difficult temperament, limited him to just 14 full international caps in six years, the vast majority coming while at Deportivo. He was part of the squad that won the 1997 Copa América.[4]
