Rivaldo signs contract with Mogi until 2015 and may play in the São Paulo State ChampionshipThe former Barcelona star has signed a contract that may keep him playing until after his 43rd birthday -
At 41 years-old and regardless of his chronic knee injury, the 2002 World Cup winner has signed an agreement with the club at which he is also president.
Despite not having a run of games in 2013, principally due to his knee problems, Rivaldo has signed a contract until November 2015, at which point he will be 43 years of age.
He will therefore be eligible to play in the Campeonato Paulista which begins in January 2014. Mogi Mirim were semi-finalists in last year’s competition and their intention is to utilise the forward in smaller games so that he can pass on his experience to younger players.
Rivaldo’s son, Rivaldinho, is a rising star at the Sapão and it’s possible that for the first time the two may play alongside each other in a competitive match.
