‘A huge challenge, but I come full of desire. I’m tired from the trip, but very ambitious. Incredible feeling. It’s a club that I remember some players like Luisão, Ronaldo, Alex and others I hear about, Dirceu, Tostão. It’s a historic club, a champion and with a crowd that needs no introduction and that I’m looking forward to getting to know, feeling the vibe. It’s a structure that I can relate to, a cast that has my tremendous confidence. I look forward to working”said.
