New Corinthians defender Gil would welcome the signing of Vasco da Gama’s Dedé
Despite only joining Corinthians earlier this month, centre-back Gil has revealed he would welcome the signing of Dedé from Vasco da Gama and the additional competition for places he would bring.
Gil, 25, joined the Club World Cup winners at the beginning of January from French club Valenciennes and believes that competition for places is healthy for a team.
"I think it will be a healthy fight of our (centre-backs) part, everyone doing their best to support Corinthians,” he told Lancenet!
“So we must work seriously to achieve the goals.”
Corinthians have made no secret of their desire to sign the highly regarded defender but as yet Vasco are refusing to sell their prized asset.
“Everyone who comes, as I was, will be well received by the group. When it comes to helping people there is always open arms. It will be good for everyone. If he (Dede) comes, we will welcome him with open arms.”
