José Elias Moedim Júnior (born 25 September 1976), commonly known as Zé Elias, is a Brazilian retired footballer. A defensive midfielder, he played for 12 different teams, in seven different countries.
Born in São Paulo, Elias was one of the youngest players to ever appear for Sport Club Corinthians Paulista. He had already gained strong interest from PSV Eindhoven during his beginnings as a senior, which happened at the age of 17.
After becoming an undisputed starter at Corinthians and first appearing for the Brazilian national team at 19, Elias went overseas, representing, with moderate individual success, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Inter Milan, Bologna F.C. 1909, Olympiacos FC (winning three Greek championships in a row but playing sparingly, a maximum of 18 league appearances) and Genoa CFC.
After a return to Brazil with Santos FC, Elias had short-lived stints with FC Metalurh Donetsk, Guarani Futebol Clube, AC Omonia and Londrina Esporte Clube. He retired as a player in March 2008 and assumed a scouting role in Brazil for Inter Milan; however, in June, he signed a contract with SC Rheindorf Altach for the 2008–09 season, before announcing his retirement again.
