The Spanish league is full of great pufos in recent years of the twentieth century. The end of the 90's in European football was marked by the famous “Ley Bosman” that bound to “Boom” TV, they allowed the Spanish League reached a number of players with a rather pitiful level, which they reached gold price, with debatable prestige and are based on the current indebtedness of many clubs. This left-back, Brazilian Portuguese passport but, who arrived in Zaragoza with the band of being “the new Roberto Carlos”, It was one of them. The truth is that their level was far from reality.
Januário José Marcelo Araújo for his family and friends but for the rest Esquerdinha, He joined Real Zaragoza from the Oporto by 500 million pesetas back in 2001. Born in 1972, it was assumed that quality had, speed, power and travel, qualities for which, supposedly, He had triumphed in Portuguese football. The truth is that on arrival at Zaragoza raised the first suspicions at her lamentable state of form, past kilos, and to which the brand elastic “Kappa” that Zaragoza wore at that time did not help him much.
Little stressed, Practically nothing, what made the only thing the public noticed him was his tremendous overweight, maybe because of the team's circumstances. Zaragoza, he went down that year to Second, thanks to a list of bad signings and horrible efforts like Esquerdinha's. At the end of that season, They left him without a record to play in the Second Division and he ended up going to Portugal and then to Brazil, where he ended his career with the same pain with which he developed it. Another case of a mediocre player with a good representative.
