Football career[edit]

Racing Santander[edit]

Born in Cabezón de la Sal, Cantabria, Jairo was a product of local Racing de Santander's youth ranks. He was promoted to the first team immediately after finishing his formation in 2011, by Argentine manager Héctor Cúper. Jairo made his first-team – and La Liga – debut on 27 August, playing the last twelve minutes in a 3–4 away defeat against Valencia CF after coming on as a substitute for Manuel Arana.[1]

On 21 September 2011, 18-year-old Jairo started his first official game for Racing, in a 0–0 home draw against Real Madrid.[2] On 25 October he scored his first top flight goal in a 2–2 away draw against Sevilla FC,[3] and went on to start in 14 of his league appearances in his first season (1,248 minutes of action), which ended in relegation.


On 21 June 2013, after again dropping down a level with Racing, Jairo signed a five-year deal with top-flight club Sevilla,[4] for a rumoured 2.5 million.[5] He made his official debut for the club on 1 August, replacing José Antonio Reyes in the 19th minute of a 3–0 win over FK Mladost Podgorica for the campaign's UEFA Europa League.[6]

Mainz 05[edit]

On 29 August 2014, Jairo signed a four-year deal with Bundesliga side 1. FSV Mainz 05.[7] The transfer fee remained undisclosed, but was believed to be in the region of €2 million.[8]
