Arthur Antunes Coimbra (born 1953), commonly known as ZICO, is a retired Brazilian footballer. An attacking midfielder who possessed excellent passing and finishing skills, Zico is regarded as one of the best players of the late 1970s and 1980s and one of the best never to have won the World Cup. Zico played most of his career for Flamengo, winning Brazil’s Serie A championship in 1980, 1982, and 1983, although he also played for Italy’s Udinese and Japan’s Kashima Antlers. Since his playing career, Zico has become a manager, coaching teams such as Fenerbahçe, whom he guided to the quarterfinals of the Champions League in 2007-2008.
