Djalma Feitosa Dias (born 9 December 1970), known as Djalminha [diʒawˈmĩj̃ɐ], is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as an attacking midfielder.

Blessed with above-average skills but also having a troublesome character, he represented among others Flamengo and Deportivo, and was also a Brazilian international.[1][2]

Club career[edit]

Brazil[edit]

Son of former footballer Djalma Dias, Djalminha (Little Djalma) was born in Santos, São Paulo, while his father was playing for Santos FC.[3] However, he started his career at Clube de Regatas do Flamengo, based in Rio de Janeiro.

Afterwards, Djalminha would have short stints with Guarani Futebol Clube and Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras (where he received the Bola de Ouro (Brazilian Golden Ball) award in 1996), with a short-lived Japanese adventure with Shimizu S-Pulse in between.

Deportivo[edit]

In July 1997, Djalminha joined Spanish club Deportivo de La Coruña, and proceeded to score 26 La Liga goals in 87 appearances in his first three seasons combined, largely contributing to the team's first-ever national championship conquest in 2000. After that, the emergence of Juan Carlos Valerón, signed upon Atlético Madrid's relegation,[4][5] and a May 2002 bust-up during training with Depor manager Javier Irureta,[6] prompted his loan to Austrian Football Bundesliga side FK Austria Wien in the 2002 summer.[7]

After just 11 appearances for Deportivo in the 2003–04 campaign, Djalminha finished his career with Mexico's Club América, retiring at 34.

Indoor football[edit]

In 2008, Djalminha returned to Depor, joining its indoor football team alongside club greats Donato, Fran, Noureddine Naybet and Jacques Songo'o.[8][9]

International career[edit]

The stiff competition in Brazil in Djalminha's position, combined with his somewhat difficult temperament, limited him to just 14 full international caps in six years, the vast majority coming while at Deportivo. He was part of the squad that won the 1997 Copa América.[10]

Djalminha was due to be called to the 2002 FIFA World Cup, but was finally not chosen by Luiz Felipe Scolari after his incident with Irureta days before the announcement of the final squad, losing his place to Kaká.[11]
