Phuket FC sign MoU with famous Brazilian club Cruzeiro



PHUKET: Pamuk Achariyachai, president of Phuket FC, announced that the club will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with famous Brazilian club Cruzeiro Esporte Club, next week.

The bilateral agreement means Phuket and Cruzerio will be able to exchange players.

The Islanders currently have two Brazilians, Luiz “Dudu” Purcino and Junior “Juninho” Guimaro, in their squad.

Pamuk is looking to use the talent at Cruzerios disposal to help Phuket gain promotion to the Thai Premier League (TPL).

“The team accepted the offer and Cruzeiro will come to Phuket to sign the agreement next week. It is good news for Phuket FC and I hope that everything will be fine”

“If this agreement signing is successful, there will be the opportunity to exchange football players with each other”

“It is a good chance to make Phuket FC stronger and we expect our team will get two players from Cruzerio in the second half of this season” he said.

Pamuk is hoping to get a striker and a midfielder.

Cruzeiro are one of the only five clubs to have never been relegated from Brazil’s top league, along with Santos, Sao Paulo, Flamengo and Internacional.

The club has an illustrious list of former players, including Colombian midfielder Freddy Rincon, former Brazil goalkeeper Dida, Brazilian midfielder Rivaldo, Brazilian legend Jairzinho and Brazilian striker Ronaldo, who started his professional career at Cruzerio.

The team finished 9th last season in Brazil’s Serie A.
