Jorge Luís dos Santos Dias (born 11 February 1976), known as Jorge Luís, is a Brazilian retired footballer who played as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Jorge Luís started his career at local Fluminense Football Club, playing with the team through consecutive relegations to the Série B and Série C. In 2001 he moved to Santa Cruz Futebol Clube in the Série A, in a relegation-ending season.

In August 2002 Luís left for Portugal and signed for Varzim SC,[1] suffering yet another relegation. The following year he stayed in the north of the country, joining fellow Primeira Liga club S.C. Braga.[2]

During his 2½ season-spell in Minho, Jorge Luís was a regular starter, as the team achieved two fifth positions and one fourth, with the subsequent UEFA Cup qualifications. In January 2006 he moved to FC Dynamo Moscow in Russia for 3 million and Nuno Frechaut,[3] as the side signed several Portuguese or Portugal-based players in that timeframe (Danny, Derlei, Maniche, etc.). After just six Premier League games, however, he returned to his previous club, on loan.[4]

In July 2007 Luís returned to his country and joined Sport Club Internacional, signing a one-year contract.[5] In May of the following year, he signed for Porto Alegre Futebol Clube in the Rio Grande do Sul State League (second division); in August he moved teams again, signing with Clube de Regatas Brasil but leaving after only one second level appearance.[6]

In late October 2009, after one year out of football, 33-year-old Luís returned to Portugal and joined C.D. Trofense in the Liga de Honra.[7] He retired at the end of the season, aged 34.
