Juninho Paulista: The Brazilian player (February 22, 1973) He arrived at Atlético in the summer of 1997 from the English Middlesbrough for 3 billion pesetas (18 million euros). The Rio international made his debut for the rojiblancos scoring a goal against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu on the first matchday of the league. However, February 1, 1998 was a turning point in Juninho's career. That day, Atlético visited Celta in Balaídos and in minute 70 of the game Michel Salgado made an entry from behind the Brazilian at the ankle, causing him a fibula fracture, as well as the rupture of multiple ligaments.

A prodigious career braking at 27 years after many operations where I did not see the light at the end of the tunnel. Although these annoyances began at Atlético de Madrid, it was finally in his time with Borussia Mönchengladbach when he really realized that he couldn't continue playing football. The case of Domínguez recalls, although saving the distance of youth, that of Camacho.
