Jucilei da Silva (born 6 April 1988), known simply as Jucilei, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for São Paulo FC on loan from Chinese club Shandong Luneng as a central or defensive midfielder.
He made his debut for Corinthians against Internacional on 10 May 2009, as the team lost 1–0. On 26 July 2010, he was called, by his former Corinthians coach Mano Menezes, to his first appearance for the Brazilian national team.
After making 99 appearances in all competitions for Anzhi in just under three years, Jucilei moved to Al Jazira in the UAE Arabian Gulf League on 13 January 2014. He acquired Palestine citizenship to be counted as an Asian player, thus avoiding the foreign quota.
On 28 June 2015, it was announced that Jucilei signed with Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League. On 1 May 2016, Jucilei scored his first goal for Shandong Luneng in Asian Champions League against Buriram United. He was also awarded for the player of the match.
