† Appearances (goals)

Argélico Fucks (born 4 September 1974), commonly known as Argel, is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a central defender, and the current coach of Sport Club Internacional.

Club career

Argel was born in Santa Rosa, Rio Grande do Sul. In his country he played for Sport Club Internacional, Santos FC and Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, with a brief stint in Japan in between and an unsuccessful spell at Portugal's FC Porto, which finished after a serious run-in with the board of directors, and prompted his Brazil return.[1]

In 2001 he returned to Portugal with S.L. Benfica, which he helped win the league in his fourth season and the domestic supercup, the former after an 11-year drought (with the player contributing with ten games and one goal).

After falling down the stoppers' pecking order at Benfica, Argel had an unassuming six-month stay at Racing de Santander, going on to retire in 2007 after representing Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, Canoas Sport Club and China's Zhejiang Lucheng FC. After his retirement he started a managerial career, first being hired as Guaratinguetá Futebol's head coach on 8 February 2008,[2] being sacked exactly one year later.[3] Three days later, he was hired by Sociedade Esportiva e Recreativa Caxias do Sul.[4]

On 2 June 2009 Argel was hired by Campinense Clube in the same capacity, replacing Fernando Teixeira.[5] On 9 April of the following year, he signed for Criciúma Esporte Clube.[6]

Argel was announced as coach of former club Internacional on 13 August 2015, after leaving Figueirense FC which he had already managed on two separate spells.[7]

International career

Argel represented Brazil internationally at the under-20 level, winning both the South American Youth Championship and the FIFA U-20 World Cup.[8]

On 29 March 1995, he gained his only cap for the full side, appearing in a friendly with Honduras.

Surname

Some of Argel's fame stems from his surname, which is a form of the English word "fuck". This led to some double entendre headlines including one from Eurosport.com titled "Fucks off to Benfica".[9]

This headline received press coverage itself with The Register calling it "snappy and eye-catching", and football humour site Laugh FC deeming it "one of the all time greats".[10]
