Argélico Fucks (born 4 September 1974), commonly known as Argel, is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a central defender, and a current coach.

Club career[edit]

Argel was born in Santa Rosa, Rio Grande do Sul. In his beginnings he played for Sport Club Internacional, Santos FC and Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, with a brief stint in Japan in between and an unsuccessful spell at Portugal's FC Porto, which finished after a serious run-in with the board of directors and prompted his Brazil return.[1]

In 2001, Argel returned to Portugal with S.L. Benfica, which he helped win the Primeira Liga in his fourth season and the domestic supercup, the former after an 11-year drought. The player contributed to this feat with ten games and one goal.

After falling down the stoppers' pecking order at Benfica, Argel had an unassuming six-month stay at Racing de Santander, going on to retire in 2007 after representing Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, Canoas Sport Club and China's Zhejiang Lucheng FC. He then started a managerial career, first being hired as Guaratinguetá Futebol's head coach on 8 February 2008,[2] being sacked exactly one year later.[3] Three days later, he was hired by Sociedade Esportiva e Recreativa Caxias do Sul.[4]

On 2 June 2009, Argel was hired by Campinense Clube in the same capacity, replacing Fernando Teixeira.[5] On 9 April of the following year, he signed for Criciúma Esporte Clube.[6]

Argel was announced as coach of former club Internacional on 13 August 2015, after leaving Figueirense FC which he had already managed on two separate spells.[7] He was fired on 11 July after six games without a win,[8] but hours later he returned to Figueirense.[9]

On 13 September 2016, Argel was named head coach of Esporte Clube Vitória.[10][11] The following 1 May, after elimination from the Copa do Nordeste against Esporte Clube Bahia and the massive brawl that ensued, he was sacked.[12]

International career[edit]

Argel represented Brazil at under-20 level, winning both the South American Youth Championship and the FIFA U-20 World Cup.[13] On 29 March 1995 he earned his only cap for the full side, appearing in a friendly with Honduras.

Surname[edit]

Some of Argel's fame stems from his surname, which coincides with a form of the English word "fuck". This led to some double entendre headlines including one from Eurosport.com titled "Fucks off to Benfica".[14] This headline received press coverage itself with The Register calling it "snappy and eye-catching", and football humour site Laugh FC deeming it "one of the all time greats".[15]
