Jean's presentation was today and he expressed his hope to score many goals for the club. When asked about his tag as a player who never scores he had this to say - and I paraphrase:
"This thing that i don't like to score goals doesn't exist. Everyone likes goals. It is my character to seek spaces on the field and move towards the center forward position. If I didn't score goals , how would I survive as a forward?"
Jean was the top scorer for Al-Sharjah back in the UAE. He joined the club in the 2nd round of the championships and scored 6 goals in 12 games. He continued:
" I scored the goal that saved the team from relegation in the last round. They even wanted me to stay there but the possibility of a big club in Brazil, such as Santos, and to work with Luxemburgo was more enticing."
Right now Jean is waiting for his registration to be transfered from the UAE to the CBF. This had been delayed since this is the month of Ramadan and Muslims work only at night.
The expectation is that the transfer will be completed on Friday so he will be available to face Fluminese on Sunday.
