José Wellington Bento dos Santos (Chinese:迪天奴; born 11 September 1973), commonly known as Detinho, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Hong Kong club Wing Yee FT as a striker. He also holds a Portuguese passport.
He played his entire professional career in Portugal and Hong Kong, retiring in his 40s.
Born in Sergipe, Detinho only started playing organised football well in his 20s. In 1997, he moved to Portugal where he remained for the following nine years, starting with F.C. Paços de Ferreira in the second division and moving to SC Vianense in the third level after a few months.
Subsequently Detinho represented U.D. Oliveirense and F.C. Marco in division three, his performances with the latter attracting the attention of Primeira Liga club S.C. Campomaiorense who purchased him for the 2000–01 season, and he responded by scoring eight goals in 29 games to finish team top scorer, even though it was not good enough to prevent relegation.
Detinho signed with Leixões S.C. in the third tier in late September 2001. He netted ten times in the league his first year, adding three in the club's historic campaign in the Portuguese Cup which ended in the final against Sporting Clube de Portugal (0–1, he played the full 90 minutes). he repeated numbers in the following season, helping achieve promotion; after the previous domestic cup exploits he competed with the Matosinhos side in the 2002–03 UEFA Cup, scoring in a 2–1 home win against PAOK FC for the first round (3–5 aggregate loss).
Detinho joined South China AA in 2006 from Imortal DC, after the team gave up its "all-Chinese" policy. He had a very successful first season in the Hong Kong First Division League, being chosen South China Star of the Month three times (September, April and May), finishing second in the top scorers table and being selected in the Hong Kong Top Footballer Best XI; additionally, he was also voted his team's best player.
Citizen / S. China return
Detinho signed for fellow league club Citizen AA in 2009, aged 36. During the 2010–11 season, in a game against Sun Hei SC, he scored a hat-trick in a 5–4 triumph. He came on as a substitute in the campaign's Hong Kong Senior Challenge Shield, helping his team overturn a 0–3 deficit to draw the match 3–3, then win the match in a penalty shootout.
