A proven ball-winner and tempo-setting in central midfield, Juninho was a key member of the Galaxy squad that won the 2011, 2012 and 2014 MLS Cups. Known for his long-range shots and precise passes out of the defensive midfield spot, Juninho left LA to join Liga MX side Club Tijuana after the 2015 season, then returned to MLS to sign with the Chicago Fire on loan for the 2017 campaign, though the move was not made permanent. After playing out his Xolos contract, he was free to reunite with the Galaxy after a transaction to acquire his MLS rights from Chicago. 

OUTSIDE MLS: The center midfielder was transferred from the Galaxy to Tijuana on Dec. 23, 2015. He had two goals and two assists in 24 appearances in his one year away from MLS. Prior to joining the Galaxy, Juninho made one appearance with his original club, Sao Paulo FC.

NOTES: Named to 2015 MLS All-Star Game.
