Date of birth20 June 1976
Place of birthCascavel
NationalityBrazilian
Weight74 kg
Height1.79 m
PositionDefender/Right back

A promising right back who faced the unenviable task of succeeding Cafu, Belletti made his international bow in the World Cup qualifier against Ecuador in March 2001.

He went on to play a key role in Brazil's 2001 Copa America campaign.

His club career began with Cruzeiro in 1994 before earning a move to Sao Paolo.

He soon came to the attention of a number of leading European clubs, with new Spanish champions Valencia rumoured to be especially interested.

Renowned as a tough tackler, Belletti's competitive edge has probably come at the expense of too many red cards.

Juliano joined Chelsea in August 2007 with a three-year contract.
