Roberto Neves Adam Junior "Juninho" has reached an agreement to join Iranian football team Foolad. The 23-year-old Brazilian will reunite with his countrymen Leandro Padovani Celin and Luciano Pereira Mendes in the Ahvaz-based team.

"Hossein Faraki (coach) has talked to Juninho and the Brazilian player has agreed to pen a contract with Foolad," Foolad sporting director Hossein Ebn-e Ghasem said.

Foolad is the favorite to win the Iranian Professional League (IPL).

Foolad Khuzestan Football Club is an Iranian football club, based in Ahvaz, Khuzestan. It was named Foolad partially because it is funded by the industry in Khuzestan. In the 2004-05 season, Foolad became the champion of the fourth Iran Pro League (IPL), gaining a total of 64 points over 30 league matches. After several successful seasons and what at one point seemed to be the emergence of a new pole in Iranian football, Foolad lost many of its key players through transfers and internal problems and also displayed a poor performance in the ACL 2006. The club was subsequently relegated to the 2nd highest division in Iran, the Azadegan League in 2007. Foolad was able to return to the IPL starting the 2008-2009 season and has been turning out relatively well in the current standings.
