Skeletor look-a-like completes odd move.
Former Brazil international and FIFA World Player of the Year Rivaldo has agreed a move to Angolan side Kabuscorp.
Rivaldo, 39, was once thought to be one of the greatest players in the world alongside Zinedine Zidane and compatriot Ronaldo, winning the World Cup with Brazil in 2002 and Champions League with AC Milan in 2003.
The former Barcelona star, who left Sao Paulo in December, was surprisingly linked with a move to Angola earlier this week and after flying to Africa for talks he has now confirmed the move.
“I received offers from several countries, but I chose Angola because of the language and because I liked the project,” he said.
“I have been a champion in every country where I have played, I have always given my best for every club I have represented, so I am confident. I am sure that I will be happy at Kabuscorp and in Angola.”
Whereas many ageing Brazilians have opted to return to their homeland to see out their careers it appears that Rivaldo has decided to buck the trend and instead opted for a surprise move to Angola. The 39 year old has had an extensive footballing career that has included spells in Spain, Italy, Greece and Uzbekistan and pretty much succeeded wherever he has turned up.
The talented attacking midfielder has won nine domestic titles in four countries and will hope to repeat the trick with Kabuscorp who finished last term in second spot.
