Troubled Botafogo striker Jobson to spend 2013 on loan at São Caetano

Botafogo striker Jobson will spend the 2013 season on loan with Campeonato Brasileiro Série B side São Caetano.

Jobson, 24, signed for Botafogo in 2009 from Brasiliense but in the same year he tested positive for crack cocaine and was banned from football by the CBF for two years, later reduced to six months after an appeal.

However, WADA, the World Anti-doping Agency, successfully appealed against the reduction to CAS, the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and Jobson was forced to sit out the remaining one and a half years of his ban.

Since his return to the game Botafogo have chose not to rely on the talented striker and instead have sent him out on loan to Atlético Mineiro, Bahia and Grêmio Barueri before signing for São Caetano for the upcoming season.

Jobson has a contract with the Rio de Janeiro club until 2015 but Botafogo have made it clear, as they have with Loco Abreu, Caio, Fábio Ferreira, Willian and Somália, that they see no future for him at the club.
