The wait is over. This Friday, Corinthians finally announced the hiring of striker Roger Guedes. The player is Timon’s third reinforcement of the season. Besides him, Renato Augusto and Giuliano have also arrived at CT Joaquim Grava.
Roger Guedes signed with Corinthians after getting the break with Shandong Luneng of China last Monday. He arrived by car at Parque São Jorge, complete with a siren, and was welcomed by President Duilio Monteiro Alves and the entire top management.
Preparation for the announcement began at 9:30 am this Friday. On its Twitter profile, Corinthians posted a tweet, which appeared to be the arrival of Roger Guedes, and which left social networks in a state of attention.
Later, around 11am, it was Corinthians’ turn to reappear on their social networks. Timão released a video with the club’s driver, Chicão, in the famous white Onix that seeks players. The club employee, however, said he would be looking for a “high-performance car” before showing up at a BMW dealership.
