José Milton Benedito, also known as Miltão (1 July 1950 – 22 December 2003) was a Brazilian professional football player. He has been the topscorer of the 1979 Copa Libertadores with 6 goals.

Club career[edit]

After having played at youth level for Estrela de Piquete, a small club based in the São Paulo state, he transferred to Sociedade Esportiva Tiradentes, a Piauí club that played in the first level of Brazilian football.[1] His first season in the Brasileirão (which was then simply called Campeonato Nacional, National Championship) was the 1974 tournament. He then moved to Sport Recife, and he stayed there for 4 seasons, playing 66 games and scoring 22 goals. In 1979 he played for Guarani, both in the National championship (only 2 appearances) and the Copa Libertadores: during the latter tournament he scored 6 goals, finishing as the topscorer along Peruvian Juan José Oré. After his experience with Guarani, he played for Vila Nova, a Goiânia-based club, and he played one last season in Série A with Tuna Luso in 1984.
