Antônio Wilson Vieira Honório (born 11 June 1943), nicknamed Coutinho, is a Brazilian former football (soccer) player. He played as a forward for Santos Futebol Clube, being a teammate and attacking partner of Pelé, and became a member of the Brazilian national team.

Born in Piracicaba, State of São Paulo, Coutinho was spotted at the age of 13 by Santos' coach Luís Alonso Pérez "Lula". One year later he became part of the Santos' lower division.[2] His professional career at Santos took place from 1958 to 1968 and in 1970, periods during which Santos won, among other titles, five Taça Brasil and eight Campeonato Paulista titles, two Copa Libertadores, and two Intercontinental Cups. Coutinho has been named the greatest Santos' player after Pelé, with whom he formed a mythical attacking duo with 1461 goals scored (370 by Coutinho).[3]

After his tenure at Santos, he also played for Vitória of Bahia, Portuguesa of São Paulo, and Atlas of Mexico.

Coutinho earned 15 caps and scored 6 goals with the Brazil national football team. He was meant to be a starter in the 1962 FIFA World Cup winning squad, but was sidelined by injury just before the tournament.
