Romário calls for CBF response in Hulk affair

The politican and former player wants answers from Brazilian football's governing body in reaction to the fraud suspected to have occurred during Hulk's transfer to Zenit St Petersburg.  

The Seleção forward moved to the Russian club from Porto for €60 million in September 2012.

Goal.com reports that papers were filed three months later claiming that Campinense developed the player in Brazil. A club that has fulfilled this role is entitled to receive up to 5% of the total value of future transactions, in line with Fifa rules. But Hulk has stated that he never played for the Campina Grande team.

On Facebook, Romário said: "Who put Campinense's name on the CBF documents? If these documents really were falsified, it is a case of justice. Who from the CBF will be arrested for this?"
