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.
