Edmilson Heads Back To Brazil


Villarreal’s Edmilson did not seem too happy at the Submarine in the role of a bench player.

On Wednesday his displeasure was known as he signed a contract with Brazilian side Palmeiras. The two-time Copa Libertadores champions made the former World Cup winner their biggest signing for the 50th edition of South America’s biggest club tournament so far.

The former Barcelona man returns to Brazil and has some ambitious plans for the remainder of his career. “I know I am not a 20-year-old anymore. My plan is to win a Copa Libertadores and a Brazilian national title- two titles I haven’t won yet. I wold also like to return to the Brazilian national team,” said Edmilson in a communicae released on Wednesday.

Palmeiras is now the team that obtained the most important reinforcements in the transfer market for the upcoming year so far as the club’s ambitions are very high for 2009. In addition to Edmilson, they also signed Brazilian scoring sensation Keirrison from Coritiba. The young poacher was voted Revelation of the Year and was the Brasileirão’s leading scorer with 21 goals.

Edmilson, 32, will undergo his physical exams on Friday and will start training no later than next week as there is little reat for the weary. Palmeiras will begin their defense of the Paulista title and they will begin their Copa Libertadores participation against Real Potosí.

    I have a feeling that a Brazilian team is going to win the Libertadores this year. Sao Paulo has Washington from last year's Fluminense Copa finalists. The 50th edition of the Libertadores is going to FYAH!!!!
