Today Emerson was presented with the number 5 shirt, which once belonged to two legends of Santos; Clodaoaldo and Zito. He signed a contract until December but there is an agreement for a renewal if Santos qualify for the Copa Libertadores.
Luxemburgo said that he will serve as an example for the younger players.
Emerson has played for many big European clubs including AS Roma, Real Madrid and AC Milan, Juventus and Bayer Luverkusen. He hasn't played since last December and has stated that he needs two weeks to reach full fitness. The aim is to have him debut against Gremio on August 19th at the Vila Belmiro. It could be emotional for him, as Gremio was the first club he played for.
Welcome to Santos Emerson.
