Prior to this, he appeared for no less then 3 different clubs, including 3 stints at Marila, a club located within Sao Paulo.

Yep - I doubt his wages are too big and as I said in the forum - give the lad a chance!

still an odd signing, especially with him being 28 yrs old and only had experience in brazil

He will do a job if salgado gets injured, other than that just a squad player for sure.

Can't really judge the geezer until i see him play but nevertheless the little spaniard with a girl's name is knocking on a bit and deserves a breather every once in a while. Hope Bruno proves to be a shrewd signing.

It's a very competitive league the Brazilian league....he was relegated from the "Serie A" with Gremio Barueri Futbol but still free transfer and we do need someone to play right back if Salgado gets injured or suspended
