Hoffenheim’s Carlos Eduardo Completes Move To Rubin Kazan

Carlos Eduardo Looks Like A Short-Haired Ronaldinho!

After Hoffenheim’s excellent season opener against Werder Bremen, where the side from Sinsheim dispatched their Champions League-bound opponents by a score of 4-1, Hoffe’s Brazilian midfield playmaker Carlos Eduardo has completed a move to Russian side Rubin Kazan.

Carlos Eduardo joined Hoffenheim in 2007 from Brazilian side Gremio. When Carlos Eduardo made his move to the German side, they were still playing their football in Germany’s second division and Carlos Eduardo was a big part of the reason why Hoffenheim made their way back to the Bundesliga. Hoffenheim grew quite famous for a sensational run in their promotion season where they were top of the Bundesliga table half-way through the season, thanks in no small part to the flair of Carlos Eduardo.

Carlos Eduardo impressed so emphatically that he even earned caps for Dunga’s Brazil squad, but failed to make the 2010 World Cup squad. Rubin Kazan, who are in need of a pacey attacking midfield player after the departure of Alejandro Dominguez last season, tabled a massive 20 million Euro bid for Carlos Eduardo and Hoffenheim had no choice but to accept.

It will be interesting to see who Hoffenheim decide to bring in, if anyone. Should Wolfsburg sign Diego from Juventus, Misimovic may be made available and the Bosnian international would be an excellent signing for Hoffe.

    But he will prbl be an easier character … maybe Hoffenheim doesn’t even need a replacement. Eduardo didn’t play against Werder and that was not so bad.

    Ah also, you write about Hoffenheim making thei way back in the Bundesliga. Actually they have never been there before.

    Sebastian Rudy is the replacement… because Stuttgart just doesn’t know how to hold on to potential talents.

      I personally don’t think he’s all that good. We’ll see!

        With Khedira and Lanig also gone, who’s going to play midfield?
        Don’t say Gentner… there is a reason why he left those years ago.

          Stuttgart certainly do look depleted at the moment. I guess Kuzmanovic and Christian Traesch will be expected to perform this season in the absence of Lanig and Khedira. Stuttgart also have Elson and Timo Gebhart, but neither of them are really players you want to be relying on throughout the season.
