:For the musician, see Armando Teixeira (musician).

Armando Gonçalves Teixeira (born 25 September 1976), commonly known as Petit, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for 1. FC Köln in the German first division, as a defensive midfielder.

He received the moniker Petit because of his small frame, and also due to the fact he was born in France. He also became known as Pitbull by supporters because of his fierce approach, in addition to a powerful outside shot.

After helping Boavista win its first and only Portuguese championship, Petit went on to amass more than 200 official appearances for Benfica, winning more three major titles. A Portuguese international during the 2000's, he represented the nation in two World Cups finishing fourth in the 2002 edition and as many European Championships.
