Servílio de Jesus Filho (15 October 1939 – 8 June 2005), also known as "Servílio", was a football striker who played for several clubs in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. He also had a brief spell in the Mexican Primera División.


Born in São Paulo, Servílio was a product of the Associação Portuguesa de Desportos youth system. He began playing professional football with Associação Desportiva Araraquara before he returned to play for Portuguesa's senior side in 1957.[1]

Servílio enjoyed his greatest success with his next club, Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras. He won the Campeonato Paulista twice (in 1963 and 1966) and Campeonato Brasileiro Série A in 1967 (Torneio Roberto Gomes Pedrosa) and 1967 (Taça Brasil).[2][3]

Servílio moved to Mexico to play for Club Atlas during the 1970–71 season. He returned to Brazil for a few seasons with Paulista Futebol Clube and Nacional Atlético Clube and finished his career in Venezuela playing for Valencia F.C..

Servílio died from a heart attack in São Paulo at age 65.[4]
