Evaristo de Macedo Filho (born June 22, 1933 in Rio de Janeiro) is a former Brazilian footballer and coach. He was capped by Brazil 14 games scoring 8 goals. He played for Barcelona until 1962. Then, the Catalan officials tried to talk him into taking Spanish citizenship so he can play for Spain, but he refused. After this disagreement, Macedo accepted the offer from Real Madrid, and went to play for the rivals. Macedo was scouted for Barcelona by the club technical secretary, Josep Samitier, which did exactly the same thing 24 years before Macedo: in 1932, Samitier left Barcelona for Real Madrid.[1]

Macedo was the head coach of the Iraq national football team at the 1986 FIFA World Cup.
