CareerEdit

Sabajo moved to PSV Eindhoven in 2004, from his local club HFC Haarlem. As a regular in the Jong PSV side, he was on the verge on breaking into the first team, making the bench in an Eredivisie game in 2009.[1]

He joined FC Lienden in the Dutch third tier[2] in 2013[3] to regain his fitness after a serious injury before moving to Scotland to join up with NLSL Premier Football Coaching, from where he and Ricardo Talu earned trials at Greenock Morton.[4]

In August 2015, Sabajo received international clearance to sign for Morton after a three-week wait.[5] In December 2015, it was announced that Sabajo would return home as he was not going to have his contract renewed.[6] On his return to The Netherlands, Sabajo signed for lower league side VPV Purmersteijn.[7]

After a season, Sabajo moved to JOS Watergraafsmeer in Amsterdam.[8]

Personal lifeEdit

Sabajo is of Surinamese descent.[9]
