Albirex boost striking options with Brazilian Kalil

Albirex Niigata on Tuesday announced the signing of Brazilian striker Leonardo Kalil Abdala.

The 19-year-old joins from Criciuma FC in Brazil’s second division in an attempt to offer alternatives to compatriot Rafael Silva upfront.

“Japan is a fantastic country with great people,” Kalil said. 

“I look forward to making friends with my new teammates soon and I want to score goals and contribute to the team.”

Albirex have opened their 2016 MEIJI YASUDA J1 League campaign with one win and one loss.
