Having arrived in the Principality in the winter of 2016 from Brazilian club Atlético Mineiro (71 games, 4 goals), Jemerson de Jesus Nascimento, to call him by his full name, enjoyed a successful first full season with AS Monaco. Together with Kamil Glik in the centre of defence, the Brazilian center back played a big role in the title-winning campaign of 2016/2017 as well as the team’s epic run to the semifinals of the Champions League, under coach Leonardo Jardim.

Subsequently, he helped the qualify club again for that queen of European competitions by securing second place in Ligue 1 in the 2017-2018 season. In the following season, Jemerson helped the club stay in the top flight in a difficult campaign. In his four seasons with AS Monaco, having been called up twice for the Seleçao in that span, played in 153 games (4 goals), including 22 in the Champions League.
Four years after his beginnings in the Principality, he will now return to Brazil to continue his career with Corinthians, who are currently 11th in the Brazilian league. AS Monaco would like to thank Jemerson for his four years here and wish him the best of luck for the rest of his career.
Obrigado Jemerson !
