Already acting in his role as goalkeeper for AFC Bournemouth, Neto is speaking. After agreeing to terms with the English club through the year 2023 and signing a contract with them, the Brazilian goalkeeper, who is 33 years old, has given his first statements to the club’s official channels.
After completing his contract with Barcelona, Neto has decided to pursue his ambition of playing in the Premier League by signing with the Cherries on a free transfer. He believes that this move would allow him to realize his dream.
“My time in Spain and Italy were both incredible learning experiences, but it has always been an ambition of mine to play in the Premier League. The veteran goalkeeper shared his sentiments, stating, “Coming to England is very important to me, and I hope to give my all for this team.”
He continued by saying, “I believe my experience can be beneficial to the squad.” Bournemouth possesses a tremendous roster, and I have high hopes that we will be able to achieve a lot by working together. Barca is a club where I have gained a lot of knowledge, and they have given me the opportunity to play with some of the best players in the world, which is a wonderful thing. Barca is also a place where I have played with some of the finest players in the world.
"My dream has always been to be here in the Premier League" ❤️
