Jailson spoke about eight years with the club with pride.

– It was a six-month contract, I ended up staying seven years. I don’t have words for everything I’ve lived here, I’m very happy. I look back and see that I have achieved everything I dreamed of. I am very grateful to Palmeiras – he said.

For the Verdão, Jailson won two Libertadores, two Campeonato Brasileiros, two Copa do Brasil and one Campeonato Paulista.

At the 2016 Brazilian, he started half of the campaign and was one of the highlights of winning the title, without losing a single match.

– The 2016 Brazilian was my first trophy. The affection is great for everyone, but 2016 is marked in my heart – he declared.

With the departure of Jailson, Palmeiras is looking for a new goalkeeper for the Weverton reserve. Marcelo Lomba, leaving Inter, is the main target at the moment.
