Ricardo Manuel Ciciliano Bustillo (born September 23, 1976 in Barranquilla) is a retired Colombian football midfielder.


Since the 2nd semester of 2006, Ciciliano plays at Millonarios where he has made several remarkable feats; one of these was made on November 19, 2006 when Millonarios played against Independiente Medellín; Millonarios was winning the match 1–0 and with 5 minutes remaining for the final whistle, Millonarios goalkeeper Jose Fernando Cuadrado was sent off. Without other goalkeeper available (Juan Carlos Henao was injured) Ciciliano decided to serve as the goalkeeper; he eventually saved the penalty kick awarded to Independiente Medellín as result of Cuadrado's foul and Millos won the match.

Another feat of Ciciliano was made on October 24, 2007 when he made 2 goals to the Brazilian club São Paulo FC assuring Millonarios qualification to the Semi-finals of the Copa Sudamericana 2007. That same year he was won Top Scorer in the Copa Sudamericana 2007 after scoring 6 goals in Millonarios.

Ciciliano played for Colombia at the 1993 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Japan.[1]
