Juan Silveira dos Santos (Portuguese pronunciation: [huˈɐ̃ siɫˈvejɾɐ dus ˈsɐ̃tus]; born 1 February 1979 in Rio de Janeiro), commonly known as Juan, is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a central defender for Brazilian side Internacional.

Having begun his career with Flamengo, he spent a decade playing in Europe in service of Bayer Leverkusen and Roma before returning to Brazil with Internacional in 2012.

Juan earned 79 caps and scored seven international goals for Brazil. He represented the nation at two FIFA World Cups, three FIFA Confederations Cups and three Copa América tournaments, winning two apiece of the latter two events.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Juan played for six years for Flamengo in Brazil. In 2002, he moved to Bayer Leverkusen. He played five years in Germany scoring ten goals for Bayer. In 2007, he moved to Roma for €6.3 million.[1]

Roma[edit]

Juan played for Roma between 2007 and 2012. In all competitions for Roma he scored 11 goals in more than 140 appearances. With Roma he won one Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana. He was a first-choice centre-back for Roma, and wore the number four jersey. Juan scored his first goal for Roma against Reggina on 16 September 2007.

In the 2011–12 season, he usually played alongside Gabriel Heinze. He scored his seventh goal for Roma in a 5–1 win over Cesena on 21 January 2012. He scored again in Roma's 4–2 loss Cagliari in Sardinia, followed by his third goal of the season, and the opening goal, in Roma's 4–0 demolition of Internazionale at the Stadio Olimpico. He scored nine goals for Roma during his time there.

Internacional[edit]

On 16 July 2012, Roma and Juan agreed to cancel his contract by mutual consent, which was set to end on 30 June 2013.[2] On the same day, Juan signed a two-year contract with the club of Porto Alegre Internacional, with a one-year option.

International career[edit]

Juan played on Brazil's Copa América-winning teams in 2004 and 2007, also winning the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2005 and 2009. He scored the winning goal in the penalty shootout at the end of the 2004 Copa América Final against Argentina in Lima.[3] In the quarter-finals of the same competition in 2007, he opened the scoring in a 6–1 thrashing of Chile in Puerto La Cruz.[4]

On 28 June 2010, Juan scored the first goal against Chile with a headed finish from a corner as Brazil won 3–0 to advance to the quarter-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.[5]
