Esteghlal Brazilian Defender Robson Januario Opts for Boavista
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Robson Januario de Paula changed his mind to return to Iran’s Esteghlal and joined Portuguese team Boavista.
Januario has penned a three-year contract with Boavista.
The 23-year-old Brazilian defender was expected to sign a new contract with Esteghlal but changed his mind.
Januario was a key member of Esteghlal last season and helped the team become runner-up in Iran Professional League (IPL).
In July 2016, Robson Januario signed for Esteghlal on loan until the end of the 2016–17 season. After joining Esteghlal, he quickly became a regular starter in the team. During the season, he made a good partnership with compatriot Padovani in central defense.
