Pisto Mosimane goes Brazilian

Amaral, also known as Marcao, joined Al Ahli from Wuhan Three Towns after guiding them to the Chinese Super League title with 27 goals in 26 games. He made the switch to Saudi Arabia in a deal worth €4.5 million (R83 million) and will add firepower to Mosimane’s squad as they look to secure promotion to the top-flight.

Marcao moved from Brazil to South Korea in 2016, joining Gyeongnam FC. He scored 49 goals for them in 66 appaearances, at a very healhy click indeed, and landed successive Golden Boots. A move to Hebei FC followed where he scored 23 goals in 47 appearances in his first season in China. From there, he made the switch to Wuhan Three Towns. He scored 39 goals in 46 appearances for them, earning Marcao yet another Golden Boot.
