    Signed for how much time?
    It's going to be interesting anyway.

    He signed for one year, but there is a clause in the contract stating that if either Honda or the club is not satisfied after the Olympics, the contract could be terminated.

    Interesting that his salary will be R$150k per month, which is about 32k euros. It was reported that he was earning 200k euros at Vitesse and 300k dollars at Pachuca.

    Honda got a crazy reception when he landed in Rio de Janeiro.

    Wow!

    I think his playing style suits the Brazilian league. In Brazil, the game is less intense and played at a slower pace compared to European football. I'm not saying it means EU football > Brazilian football.

    Honda's debut confirmed for next Tuesday (03/10) in the Copa do Brasil 3rd round first leg at home against Paraná Clube (2nd division).



    By the way, Yaya Toure is on the verge of signing for Botafogo as well.

    Promising debut today. Played 61 minutes in a 1-1 draw against Bangu and was arguably the best Botafogo player. Scored from a PK, provided two key passes and completed 32 out of 33 passes. Too bad the game was under closed doors and all matches are suspended in Brazil from now on.
