A Little Bit More About the New Trialist For Sporting KC: Jairo Peixoto

Sporting Kansas City's reserves beat Chicago Fire 1-0 today out at Swope Training Center. Most of the starting XI for Sporting KC was a normal second tier team that we would expect Peter Vermes to field. However, a new trialist was included in the starting 11 named Peixoto.

Through some lengthy internet searching I found out his full name was Jairo Rodrigues Peixoto Filho(more commonly known as Jairo Peixoto). I also found out that he played most recently with América Futebol Clube of Brazil after having played with Brazilian giants Santos FC's U17, U18, and U20 youth teams.

From January of 2012 onward it would seem as if Peixoto simply fell off the face of the earth as it gets difficult to find his name in connection with soccer anywhere on the internet.

Neither America Futebol Clube or Santos FC have him listed as a player on their sites so I assume Jario is a free agent and Sporting KC could sign him whenever they wanted to.

I like this potential move, it makes sense to me and Jario looks like he has some talent about him and he knows what its like to play at a "big club" type atmosphere.
