Club careerEdit

Born in Bissau, Guinea-Bissau, Jorginho came through the youth ranks at Manchester City after signing at the age of 17.[1][2] After agreeing to a one-year contract extension on 7 July 2015,[3] he was limited to reserve team football.[4]

In the very last minutes of the 2016 winter transfer window, Jorginho moved to Portugal and joined F.C. Arouca on a three-and-a-half-year deal.[5] He made his Primeira Liga debut on 7 February, coming on as a 78th-minute substitute in a 2–1 away win against FC Porto.[6]

On 17 December 2016, Jorginho scored a hat-trick in a 4–1 away triumph over Moreirense FC.[7] In the following transfer window he was transferred to AS Saint-Étienne of the French Ligue 1,[8] who loaned him six months later to G.D. Chaves in a season-long move after acquiring him on a permanent basis.[9]

On 19 June 2018, Jorginho signed with Bulgarian club PFC CSKA Sofia on loan until the end of the campaign.[10] One year later, he agreed to a permanent contract at PFC Ludogorets Razgrad of the same country.[11]

International careerEdit

Jorginho represented Portugal at youth level. He was part of the squad at the 2014 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, appearing in three games – including eight minutes in the final against Germany – for the eventual runners-up.[12]

On 22 March 2018, Jorginho made his debut for his native Guinea-Bissau, starting in a 2–0 friendly defeat to Burkina Faso.[13][14]
