Maicosuel Reginaldo de Matos or simply Maicosuel (born 16 June 1986 in Cosmópolis, São Paulo), is a Brazilian footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Atlético Mineiro.[1]

Career[edit]

After very good performances playing for Paraná Clube, he was acquired by Cruzeiro in 2007.[2] Despite great expectations, he never secured a position in the squad and was mostly used as a back-up until June 2008, when he was bought by Traffic Sports, an investor group, and left Cruzeiro to join Palmeiras. After an unsuccessful spell at Palmeiras Maicosuel joined Botafogo in 2009. At Botafogo Maicosuel played at top level and with only five months at Botafogo he was elected the best player of the Rio de Janeiro State competition, "Mago" (magician) was sold to Hoffenheim months later. On 21 May 2009, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim signed the Brazilian midfielder from Botafogo. The player signed a five-year contract and the transfer fee was 4.5 million euros. In summer 2010 he returned to Botafogo.[3]

On 13 July 2012, Maicosuel signed a five-year deal with Italian club Udinese.[4] He had a promising start as he scored on his Serie A debut against ACF Fiorentina, but soon afterwards his error from the penalty spot against Sporting Braga was decisive as Udinese lost the penalty shootout which would have granted the Italian team access to the group phase of the 2012–13 UEFA Champions League. Maicosuel was the only player to miss his penalty, attempting a Panenka chip that goalkeeper Beto easily caught. Braga would go on to win the shootout 5–4.
