Jose proved crucial for many Slavia matches, making his famous runs down the left wing, and quickly became a first choice for the left winger or second striker. On 29 August he scored his first goal for the club against Levski Sofia but Slavia went on to lose the game 1–3. On 22 November Jose Junior scored three goals against Chernomorets Burgas and became a second foreign player after Ljubomir Vorkapić, who scored a hat trick for Slavia in the team's history.

He made his debut on 16 September 2012 at the TFF First League against Denizlispor. He scored his first goal for Adana Demirspor on the 44th minute of the match against Kayseri Erciyesspor. Junior carried his team to playoffs with 14 league goals which made him the 3rd top scorer in TFF First League in 2012–2013 season but Adana Demirspor eliminated by Manisaspor in semi-final of playoffs and postponed its chance to promote Turkish Süper Lig to another year.
