“We have also signed another Brazilian Andreas and are looking forward for more signings that will boost the squad,” Dempo added.

The centre-back has won many major honours in his career including the World Cup with Brazil in 2002, the Bundesliga, the Champions League as well as the Serie A. The 37-year old was last seen playing for Brazilian side Palmerias.
