Uruguayan striker Sebastián Abreu, 42 years old, has extended his career for the modest Brazilian Bran Rio, the 28th club in his career, which he earned last year with the Guinness World Record as the player with the largest number of signatures. When he crossed teams such as Botafogo, where he became an idol of enthusiasts, or Figueirense, the player will return to Brazil to join this modest Vitoria club (about 500 km north of Rio de Janeiro) in the battle for the next national championship Espírito Santo.
His arrival in Rio Branco, recently promoted to the first regional division and without participation in the national, was "the madness of the president who ended well" as the attacker on the website of the club recognized after the signing of the agreement at midnight on Wednesday. "I hope that at the end of the championship we will be lucky to end in April," added the mythical 13 Uruguayan team, which was the fourth in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The last team of Abreu was Magellan Chile's first B, for which he signed at the end of June and added the 27th club to his extensive career. Footballers who were years ago in Santiago have been recognized by the Guinness World Records as the player with the largest number of signatures in history, after jumping to Italian Audax. With this transfer Abreu surpassed the record of 25 clubs he shared with German Lutz Pfannenstiel.
In his 24-year career, charismatic progress has gone with groups from 11 countries, although in some cases it has been several months, even in different leagues per season.
Abreu, remembered by the Uruguayans that he was persecuting the ball in a criminal shooting against Ghana at the World Cup in South Africa, debuted in 1994 in Defensor Sporting his country. From there, he started the race in a deep exercise.
