INFO: The first prince
Former midfielder of the Club, Jair shone with the red shirt in the 70's.
He lavished elegance in the midfield of Inter and earned the nickname "prince". In the middle of the glorious seventies, between Falcão, Valdomiro, Figueroa and so many more, a talented right-hander of powerful shot appeared in Beira-Rio. Authentic old fashioned shirt 8, Jair, Prince Jajá, to this day he misses the heart of the fans who had the privilege of seeing him parade with his red shirt.
Despite the classic style, Jajá was a player ahead of his time. His intense movement and versatility allowed him to act in different positions and tracks of the field, as much as half, tip, steering wheel or lateral. Besides the refined technique in the frame of the plays, also scored many goals, even being an articulator. It was no wonder he became one of the only players to win three national titles for Inter.

Three-time Brazilian champion
After winning the traditional São Paulo Junior Cup, Jair was raised to the professionals. He made his debut as a youngster on the Colorado team and gradually gained the confidence of coach Rubens Minelli until he became a key player in the years to come. So much so that, together with Valdomiro, Falcão and Batista, he participated in the three national titles won in 1975, 76 and 79.
In the campaign for the first Brazilian title, still with promise status, Prince Jajá was a kind of joker of the team and entered different positions, always with equal ease. More mature, the following year the former midfielder received a greater sequence in the team and was able to demonstrate his football. His contribution was effective and scored eight goals in the campaign of the Brazilian bicampeonato.
However, it was in 1979, with Ênio Andrade in charge of the case, that Jair had his best year for the International. Forming an unmatched half-court with Batista, Falcao and Mário Sérgio, he led the People's Club to the unbeaten title of Brasileirão, made until today unheard of. In the final, in front of Vasco, in a completely crowded Beira-Rio, he paved the way for victory by scoring the first goal of the match. In the same year, went to stop in the Brazilian Selection, disputing, inclusively, a Copa América.

With the blessing of the King
The author of his nickname is none other than the former center-forward Darius, King Dada. The charismatic shirt 9 had received a millimeter pass from Jair to score the goal of a win against Grêmio. At the end of the game, in an interview with reporters, Dadá credited the goal's merits to the former midfielder, saying that if he was King Dadá, Jair was Prince Jajá, thus forming red royalty.

Multi-champion in Uruguay
When he left Inter in 1981, Jair passed Cruzeiro, where he played with then-defender Abel Braga, now Colorado coach. The following year, it was shining on the Uruguayan lawns. Sporting the shirt 10 of the traditional Peñarol, he stacked cups, winning the Uruguayan Championship, the Copa Libertadores of America and the Intercontinental of 1982. In the semifinal of the Latin American tournament, eliminated the powerful Flamengo, of Zico and company, with a masterful goal of missing in full Maracana full. In Japan, against Aston Villa of England, scored one of the goals of the title and was awarded the prize of best player of the match.
