Ricardo Weslei de Campelo, also known as Ricardinho (born 19 November 1983 in Birigüi, São Paulo) is a Brazilian footballer.

Melbourne Victory[edit]

On 19 August 2010, Ricardinho was officially unveiled as Melbourne Victory's international marquee player, where he signed a two-year deal and was handed the number 9 shirt.[2] Melbourne's signing of Ricardinho came at a time when the club was short of strikers, having sold Danny Allsopp and with Archie Thompson sidelined with a long term injury. Ricardinho debuted off the bench for Melbourne in a 2–0 loss against Central Coast Mariners on 3 September 2010. On 12 September 2010, on his full debut with Melbourne Victory, Ricardinho scored his first goal in a 3–0 win at home to Brisbane Roar.[3][4]

Ricardinho was not selected as one of the five foreign imports for Melbournes 2011 Asian Champions League campaign, and as a result was loaned to Campeonato Brasileiro Série B club Paraná Clube back in his home country of Brazil.[5][6]

On 21 August 2011, Melbourne Victory announced its intention to release Ricardinho from his contract after his loan spell with Paraná Clube expired.[7]
