Sebastião de Freitas Couto Júnior, better known as Sebá (born June 8, 1992 in Salvador) is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Greek club Olympiacos F.C. mainly as a centre forward.


Sebá starting his career to the Brazilian team Cruzeiro, but he had evolved in Dragões FC Porto (mainly reserve team). Sebá is a midfielder that can play in all fronts of the attack, although it is more efficient on one side. With good ball striking and an advanced high speed, the Brazilian has yet to win on a consistent whole match and after a couple of matches in the Primeira Liga considered a new Hulk in power. Faced with increased competition, FC Porto however decided not to activate the clause allowing him to finally join the player and Estoril did not miss the opportunity. Playing in the UEFA Europa League just months after being promoted to the first division, the Lusitanian club take advantage of its close relationship with the Brazilian company Traffic (Agency of players) that owns part of the rights of the player, to complete his transfer.[1]

On 19 August 2015, Olympiakos has confirmed the signing of Brazilian forward Sebá as the Greek champion tries to boost its squad ahead of the start of the new season. Sebá will sign a four years' contract for a reported fee of €1.7 million, joined the Piraeus club from Portuguese side Estoril. The 23-year-old forward will team up with his fellow Portuguese Marco Silva, who took over as Olympiakos coach in the summer.[2]
