Club career

Jorginho started playing professionally for local side América Football Club, moving after just one season to Clube de Regatas do Flamengo.

In 1989, he went overseas, joining German Bundesliga outfit Bayer 04 Leverkusen. With most teams in the country playing in a 5-3-2 or 3-5-2 formation, Jorginho's tremendous offensive ability was put to good use, and he scored five goals for Bayer during his third and final season.

Jorginho signed in 1992-93 with league giants FC Bayern Munich, backed by a defensive line which included Olaf Thon, Thomas Helmer and later Lothar Matthäus. He won the national title in his second year but, after the loan return of Markus Babbel, a centre back which also operated on the right flank, was restricted to just ten league contests in 1994-95.

After still appearing with successfully for J. League's Kashima Antlers, winning both the league and MVP titles in 1996, Jorginho returned to Brazil and played until 39, with São Paulo Futebol Clube, CR Vasco da Gama and Fluminense Football Club. In 2001, he paired at Vasco with both Romário and Bebeto, but did not seem to get along with the pair.

International career

Jorginho was capped 64 times for the Brazilian national team, scoring three goals. He played at both the 1990 and the 1994 FIFA World Cups.

In the latter edition, he played all the matches as the nation emerged victorious. Jorginho was booked in the second-round match against the US, but was named in the All-Star squad a few days later. He contributed two assists in the tournament, including a cross in the semifinals against Sweden that helped Romário score the winning goal. He also played superbly against Italy in the final, including a play in which he stunningly freed himself from a double-team. However, he got injured after just twenty minutes of play and was replaced by Cafú.

Coaching career

In 2006, Jorginho was hired as the head coach of first side América-RJ. However, on July 31 of that same year, he was hired as Brazil's assistant, joining the staff of former national side teammate Dunga. He took over from Dunga for Brazil's first two friendlies in 2008, following Dunga's dismissal on previous match and subsequent ban from the CBF. Jorginho won those two friendly matches against Republic of Ireland and Sweden, both with 1-0 scoreline.[1][2]

Personal

Jorginho is a born-again Christian who, along with Brazilian teammates Cláudio Taffarel and Bismarck, was featured sharing his faith in a special version of the Jesus film produced and distributed during the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
