Rivaldo's son Rivaldinho signs for Corinthians
Corinthians have secured the signing of Brazilian wonderkid Rivaldinho, the 17-year-old son of Brazil legend Rivaldo.
The striker sealed a three year contract with the club after originally being on loan.
Rivaldinho told the press in Brazil on signing for Corinthians: “I’m used to being the son of Rivaldo. That does not bother me and doesn’t help anything.
"I know my potential. It is not because of him that I will or won’t be a great player. I will deal with the pressure. I have a history and so does he. My father is my idol.”
The youngster will be following in the footsteps of his father if he plays for the first team as Rivaldo spent a year at the club in the 1993/94 season.
He also spent time at his father's former clubs Olympiakos and Mogi Mirim.
