Luis Airton Barroso Oliveira (born 24 March 1969 in São Luis, Maranhão, Brazil) is a Brazilian-Belgian football player who spent most of his playing career in Italy.



Born in a Brazilian favela in São Luis in Maranhão, in 1985 he was signed by Anderlecht in Belgium, where he started his career and played until 1992. He then moved to Italy, where he played for Cagliari, Fiorentina, Bologna, Como, Catania, Foggia, Venezia and Lucchese. In 2006, he accepted to play Nuorese of Serie C2/A, also in order to get closer to his family (his wife in Sardinia). In 2008, following the disbandment of his club, he agreed for a move to Serie D team Derthona, and in 2009 he moved to Muravera.

A naturalized Belgian citizen, he has earned 31 caps for Belgium and played for his adopted country in the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
