Roberto Orlando Affonso Júnior (Chinese: 羅拔圖; born 28 May 1983 in São Paulo, Brazil), commonly known as Roberto, is a Brazilian-born Hong Kong professional footballer who currently plays for Hong Kong Premier League club Kitchee.

Club career[edit]

On 18 June 2017, Eastern's chairman Peter Leung claimed that Roberto was offered a two-year contract by R&F. Two weeks later, the two clubs agreed on a HKD$250,000 transfer fee.[4] On 14 October 2020, Roberto left the club after his club's withdrawal from the HKPL in the new season.

On 17 February 2021, Kitchee announced the signing of Roberto. [5]

International career[edit]
