Possebon: “I had no doubts about accepting this offer”

Posted by nickogs20 on July 3, 2009

Reds midfielder Rodrigo Possebon has spoken of his excitement as he embarks on a season-long loan with Sporting Clube de Braga.

Possebon was presented to the media at Os Arsenalistas‘ AXA Stadium today, and then spoke to the club’s official website about his hopes for the season and his reasons for making the switch from northern England to northern Portugal:

“I hope I will have a great season and help the club.

“I was really excited with the ambitious project they presented to me. I had no doubts about accepting this offer.”

The naturalised Italian also spoke in glowing terms of his new club’s unique and distinctive stadium, which is carved into the side of a rock face on the site of a former quarry, saying, “This stadium is beautiful. I have never seen anything like this.”

Pre-season training has already started in Braga, and United’s 20 year-old playmaker will be looking to get up to speed quickly and to force his way into the plans of coach Domingos Paciência as soon as possible as he seeks to pick up first-team experience this coming campaign.

    Stylish on the ball, stylish in his clothings…

    Hope he does well there and comes back to us all the better.

    Good opportunity for Rodrigo here. He just need to follow Sir Alex’s way of nurturing next-big-thing player, comeback stronger, and fight for the 1st team centre midfield berth.

    He is future ready-made replacement for our midfield veterans. Now his moments and chance to prove it right.

    C’mon Rodrigo! U r our next sytlish midfield playmaker!
