Jorge Miguel Moreira Larrouy Fernandes, commonly known as Jojó (born 6 September 1970), is a Mozambican retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

The son of Portuguese settlers in Mozambique, Jojó began his career with Clube de Desportos da Costa do Sol and Clube Ferroviário de Maputo. In 1992 he returned to the land of his ancestors and signed for Boavista FC, but never appeared officially for the team, also being loaned to União de Leiria.

Most of Jojó's Portuguese career was spent in the second division. In the 1997–98 season, he had his first and only top flight experience, appearing in 24 scoreless matches for C.F. Os Belenenses as the campaign ended in relegation. In the country, he also represented, in a total of 12 years, A.D. Ovarense, F.C. Penafiel and Sporting de Espinho (two of his six seasons with the latter club were spent in division three).

In 2005, aged 35, Jojó moved to Australia, closing out his career two years later having represented Fraser Park FC and Bonnyrigg White Eagles Football Club. He later obtained his UEFA coaching licence, both levels 1 and 2.[1]

International career[edit]

Jojó played for the Mozambique national football team in the 1996[2] and 1998 African Cup of Nations finals,[3] gaining nearly 80 caps in 14 years.[1] He was named to the 1998 African Cup of Nations Team of the Tournament.
