Hi, fellows. My name is Rafael Martins, I'm brazilian. I live and Rio and I support Vasco da Gama. Vasco is close to hire Leo Jabá, who played in PAOK for some time. I'd like to know details about the style of this player. What are his strong and weak points? Do PAOK supporters like him? What about his behaviour: is he a hardworking guy? I'd be very glad if you could give me some information, as he left brazilian football very early and Vasco' s supporters, like me, know nothing about him. Thanks a lot and sorry for disturbing you.

Ola amigo! Welcome to the forums!

He could easily be playing in the Premier League right now but (like most 20 year old footballers) he isn't focused. Too busy going out at night and posting on Instagram.

Rafael welcome to our forum. I would have to agree with pash concerning Jaba that his career as a competitive football player is over. He came to PAOK as a very promising prospect, and had a very good first season with the team. There were rumors after his first season with PAOK that FC Porto were offering close to 10 million Euro for him (it cost PAOK 4 million to buy him). Not sure if that was true or if that was his manager trying to move him to Portugal. One thing is sure though. He made a trip to Porto and after that he came back he was not the same player. Things got worse after his serious injury in a friendly game. Apparently the knee surgery following his injury did not go well  and he struggled with several infections as a result that almost cost him his career. After this ordeal he was just not the same player. He started this season playing in couple pre-season games, but he was completely out of shape, and lacked the speed that he was known for. Then he started his various trips to Brazil where he got engaged and then tried to persuade PAOK to let him be loaned to Atletico Club Goianiense. PAOK worked out a deal with Goianiense but he never signed with them. Now he is trying to sign with Vasco de Gama. I don't know how serious he is about joining them considering his past and how unpredictable he is. Maybe you can shed some light for us on how serious Vasco de Gama is about him. He would be joining his ex teammate Leo Matos there. Matos is highly respected by PAOK fans.

Reports are that Vasco de Gama will announce Jaba as soon as they get the necessary paperwork from PAOK.  It will be a loan until the end of December of 2021. PAOK will pay most of the wages, while Vasco de Gama will pay his rent. There is a clause that if he does not play specific number of minutes by June he will be returned to PAOK..

So we'll see him in early June, then.

You mean LITERALLY pay his rent? Like, his apartment? Hahahahaha

#3 Brentford drew 0-0. Norwich City - with a quarter to go - lead 6-0. They just need after this match/win another 5 points to secure promotion to the premier League mathematically.
