After the Asian club announced the account to deposit the amount, Jô and the Corinthians had 45 days to settle the debt. If this does not happen, the striker is banned from playing official games for up to six months, and Timão is banned from registering players in three consecutive transfer windows.
At this time, it is possible that there will be negotiations with Nagoya Grampus to reduce or divide the amount to be paid.
Even if the conviction occurred in a lawsuit brought by the Japanese club against Jô, the Corinthians were obliged to show unity in action, as they hired the striker shortly after his departure from Nagoya. Timão seems to be the guarantee of this payment.

Seeking to comment on the case through a press office, the Corinthians reported that it was “analyzing the next steps to reach a resolution”.
In an interview with ge on Monday, the club’s president, Duilio Monteiro Alves, said:
-It was an action against the athlete, not against the Corinthians. The club supports the action because it hires the athlete. He was fired because of a club, and the one who hired was called? In my view, the Corinthians have nothing to do with it.
-Let’s see if there is conviction, what will be worth, so it depends a lot on his to say to assume what. But I don’t think it’s going to happen, because it doesn’t make sense. Neither Jô, who was expelled for good reason, nor the Corinthians – he added.
At 35, Jô has been free on the market since last week, when he successfully ended his contract with the Corinthians. Initially, the athlete sought to continue acting and did not consider retirement.

This case lasted for more than a year. The first conviction took place in November 2020, and the CAS appeal was filed in 2021.
Why were Jo and the Corinthians condemned?
The striker returned to Timão in June 2020, after two seasons in Japan.
Jô, however, had a link to Nagoya Grampus until the end of 2021 and, months before being transferred to the Corinthians, he had a disagreement with the Japanese. The club claimed to have left his job and, therefore, not only suspended payments to him from April, but also filed a lawsuit with FIFA seeking compensation for the remaining amount of the contract until December.
Jô’s misunderstanding with Nagoya Grampus began in February 2020, when the player injured his left knee.
-The Nagoya coach understands that Jô should stay in Japan, even if the club is away in the pre-season. But the physiotherapists and doctors traveled with the team, they were abroad. Jô understood that he was not well, he needed physiotherapy to work and went to Brazil to be treated with Flamengo. He paid for the trip to get better treatment – explained Breno Tannuri, in an interview with gein 2020 yet.
Weeks later, Jô returned to Japan with Cláudia, his wife, but was not involved in the first two games of the season. Subsequently, the local championship was suspended due to a new coronavirus pandemic.
Nagoya Grampus allows athletes to stay at home, but not leave Japan. So, weeks later, Jô was informed by the club that his salary had been suspended.
According to Jô’s lawyer, the striker responded to this announcement and explained the reason for his return to Brazil. The allegations, however, are not enough to convince Asians.
– He should receive between the end of April and the beginning of May a bonus of 1 million dollars, which is reflected in the contract. What happens is that, when he told the interpreter, on Thursday night, that he would be returning to Japan on Monday, the directors sent a notice to Jô on May 2, saying that the contract had been terminated. If he returns to Japan, Nagoya will have to pay the salaries and those gloves of 1 million dollars – Tannuri revealed.
– She left her children in Brazil with their grandparents. But the “zum-zum-zum” began that foreigners couldn’t leave Japan. When they said the border was closed, Jô said: “I have to go back”. That was in April. So, they returned to Rio de Janeiro – says the lawyer.

Jô’s lawyer agreed that the striker could be punished for returning to Brazil, but claimed there was no justification for breaching the contract. Breno Tannuri said the athlete did not miss training and had no reason to hurry, as the local championship will only resume next month.
After leaving Nagoya, Jô signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Corinthians. Therefore, FIFA understands that the club must come together and pay the fee.
