São Caetano seals Rivaldo signing
Brazil legend Rivaldo has returned home to sign for Serie B side São Caetano.
The 40-year-old put pen to paper on a deal to join the São Paulo based club and will debut in the São Paulo State Championship.
Club president Nairo Ferreira de Souza told the club's website: "It is a significant reinforcement that will give a refined touch to our midfield. His technical quality is fantastic and he will greatly help the group with his experience and leadership."
Rivaldo told reporters: "I thank God that for 40 years I have the opportunity to continue playing. I had offers from several clubs and I'm happy.
"To critics I would like to say that this is only a result of my dedication and I will be working hard to do my best on the pitch. I hope to be an example for many."
Rivaldo returns to Brazil after a long career in Europe at Deportivo La Coruna, Barcelona, AC Milan, Olympiakos as well as recently travelling to play in Kenya at Kabuscorp last season.
