Jabba's Comments

A Brazilian World Cup winner who was also part of AC Milan's European Champions League winning side in 2003. He first came to prominence in 1999 in the game between Man U and SE Palmeiras - his team since 1996 - and the following summer moved to Italy to join AC Milan. His time at Milan has been plagued with injury, and has rarely been a regular starter. However he played six games in WC2002 and picked up a winners' medal with Brazil. A shoulder injury at the start of the 2002/03 season further restricted his appearances, and although he returned to the side in time for the Champions League Final, he picked up another injury there that kept him out of the national side through the summer. Joined Leeds on a one-year loan just before the transfer deadline in August 2003. The defence was in turmoil at the time after the departure of Jon Woodgate and Rio Ferdinand, and with Dom Matteo shifted into midfield, but even so his contribution to stopping opponents was pretty woeful. He did score twice against ManU, but there was a collective sigh of relief from the fans when he returned from international duty with an Achilles injury, and with costs being cut to the bone, he agreed to return to Milan in January. He has since been loaned out to recently-promoted Siena.

Sarah says: i'm very sorry but i'm going to be honest here.u may be a top class player a world cup winner and wat ever other titles u may hold but i honestly don't think u really want to play for this club u haven't really got a chance to set an impression but i get the impression u don't really mind once u get your pay packet at the end of the week,and maybe i'm wrong maybe i'm being a bit judgemental maybe a should give u more time to make an impression-i don't know i'm only human! but Roque jnr. i wud absolutely love to see you prove me wrong and show us wat ur really like and 4 your sake our clubs sake and us-the fans sake u do! show us wat your really made of do us proud i no u can i jus haven't seen it yet!

paolo borghesi says: ciao Roque mi manchi molto al Milan ci faresti ancora molto comodo. speriamo che il prossimo anno ritorni

Anon says: does anyone know what sort of loan contract he's got? What's he getting per week and can we get rid of him?

cesare franxin says: Ciao, spero ke la Giuventus ti acquisti, 6 il mio idolo!

Robert Metcalfe says: I think Roque Junior is a great player. He played for us early in the season and did well - scoring twice against Manchester in the Carling Cup! What has happened to him? Does anyone know? Jabba says - he picked up an achilles injury while out playing a WC qualifier for Brazil.
