Internacional sign Rivaldo's son Rivaldinho
On Wednesday, Internacional announced on their website that they've signed striker Rivaldinho, son of former World Cup winner and Brazilian attacker Rivaldo.
The 21-year-old, who comes to strengthen their B-team, was presented by the club in CT Alvorada. After passing a medical and signing the contract, Rivaldinho couldn't hide his happiness on signing for Internacional. He also revealed that his father, who won the FIFA World Cup with the national team in 2002, advised him to choose Inter. Rivaldinho said: "For me it's a joy to play for a giant club like International. I talked to my dad about it and he really supported my choice because it is a club with a great structure that can give all the support that I want to evolve as a player. I hope to do my best and give much joy to the fans."
Rivaldinho came through Mogi Mirim but left the club in August 2015 to join Boavista in Portugal. In four months, he participated in just two games for Boavista, totaling 52 minutes on the field. Dissatisfied with the treatment he received from coach Erwin Sánchez, Rivaldinho returned to Brazil, signing with XV de Piracicaba in January this year.
