José Carlos Nogueira Júnior, commonly known as Juninho or José Júnior (born 18 July 1985), is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Karşıyaka as a forward.[1]

Career[edit]

In early of 2009, Jose joined Duque de Caxias. He made his competitive debut on 31 January, in a 3–1 Campeonato Carioca loss against Vasco da Gama, when he came on for Dudu in the 66th minute.[2] Juninho scored his first goal on 31 March, netting Duque's second in a 4–2 victory over Mesquita.

In July 2009, after short trial period, he was bought by Bulgarian A PFG club Slavia Sofia. He made his competitive debut on 10 August, during an A PFG match against Sportist Svoge. 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.

On 20 August 2010 Junior was loaned to the end of the year to Armenian side Banants.

On 13 February 2012, it was announced that Juninho would be loaned to fellow A PFG side Levski Sofia for the rest of the 2011–12 season, with an option to make the move permanent.[3][4]

On 5 September 2012, Junior agreed to go on a loan to Turkish side Adana Demirspor which is commonly called as The Blue Lightning – Mavi Şimşekler. 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.
