Felipe Menezes Jácomo (born 20 January 1988), known as Felipe Menezes, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Ratchaburi Mitr Phol as an attacking midfielder.

Menezes played youth football with Goiás Esporte Clube. He made his senior debut with the local club on 12 May 2007, in a 0–2 away defeat against São Paulo FC for the Série A.[1] On 7 July, for the same competition, he scored his first goals as a professional, netting twice – including once in the 90th minute – in a 3–2 home victory over Sport Club do Recife.

On 28 August 2009, Menezes signed with S.L. Benfica in Portugal, on a five-year contract. He made his official debut for the Lisbon outfit on 17 September, playing 60 minutes in a 2–0 home win against BATE Borisov for the season’s UEFA Europa League, but appeared in only 11 official games in his first year as Benfica won the national championship after five years, including just five in the league (133 minutes of action).

On 21 June 2011, Menezes was loaned to Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas for one year.

On 2 July 2013, Menezes signed a three-year contract with Brazilian side Palmeiras. According to the player: “Acredito que eu esteja um pouco atrás fisicamente do pessoal que iniciou esta intertemporada, pois venho fazendo apenas academia e ergometria. Mas eu creio que rapidamente já estarei com o grupo.” (“I believe that I am worst physically than the other players, because I am training only at gym and on treadmill. But I think to be soon with the group”).
