I arrive very motivated, happy and I hope to honor in the best way possible. possible. To score goals and win titles, I’ve won many in my career. I’m super excited,” said the new number 99 of Santos, before commenting on the layoff.

It was funny, but unfortunately I ended up being the biggest loser. I saw that most who worked with me were champions. Fate wanted me to return here. I had great affection, respect, it was my first club. I hope to fulfill my dream of being champion and leave my name engraved in Santos,” he added.
