Eduardo Signs with Legia Warsaw in Busy Winter Window

WARSAW, Poland. January 6 (PSN) – Eduardo da Silva has signed with Polish champions Legia Warsaw in what could only be summed up as a busy winter window.

The Brazilian-born former Croatia international most recently was attached with Atletico Paranaense, cited a lack of playing time in Brazil as the main reason for his return to Europe.

Eduardo has an impressive resume with Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk listed as former clubs, but he is best known for his time at Arsenal FC. His career took a major hit with injury in 2008. As a result of a brutal tackle in a match against Birmingham City, the striker suffered a broken left fibula and an open dislocation of his left ankle. He returned to action ten months later, but could never capture his past sensational form that once put him on the footballing map.

In addition, Eduardo has been capped 62 times for Croatia, scoring 29 goals. At Legia, the 34-year-old signed a one-year contract with an option to extend for another 12 months. He will play with the number 9 in Warsaw.

Legia Warsaw have been quite busy in the winter window, having not only signed Eduardo but as well Domagoj Antolic and Marko Vesovic to fill in for Guilherme (Benevento) and Hildeberto Pereira (Northampton Town/loan) who both departed the club.

Antolic is a 27-year-old midfielder and the former captain of Dinama Zagreb. He appeared 6 times on the Croatian national team. With Legia, he signed a three-year contract, where he will don the number 7. Vesovic is a 26-year-old right-back and a current member of the Montenegro national team. He signed a three and a half-year contract and will wear the number 20.

All three players will appear for their new club in the Florida Cup, which Legia is taking part in. The exhibition tournament is scheduled for January 10-20.
