Botafogo sign twins Alex and Anderson from Vitesse
Botafogo have confirmed the signing of twins Alex and Anderson from Vitesse.
The duo, both defenders, have decided to return to Brazil, after finding first-team opportunities limited at the Eredivisie side.
Both Alex and Anderson were signed by Vitesse in 2011, following a contract dispute with their then employees Flamengo.
Anderson admits it was disappointing to leave the Mengão at the time, but is fully focused on being successful with Botafogo.
That happens. We didn't reach a deal and we left," he said, as reported by Shanghai Daily.
”I was raised at Flamengo and I still have friends there. There are no hard feelings but now I want to create history with Botafogo."
