Emerson is now officially a player of Santos

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.


  1. The man should work as a second coach on the field. This team really does need someone to take hold of the mess.

  2. I guess he´ll have the status that Zé Roberto had
    he will dictate the rules inside the field
    welcome, emerson

  3. He only played for the best teams around the world. This time couldn't be different.
