Brazilian Dovenir Domingues Neto, known simply as Neto, is one of the world’s best ever futsal players, and on Wednesday his transfer to Croatian club FC Split Tommy was confirmed…

Neto (34) comes to Split after winning the World Cup with Brazil, 2 European titles, 3 Brazilian league titles, 2 Spanish titles and 3 Spanish cups. Neto also won the Golden Boot at the World Cup in 2012.

“I chose Split Tommy because the club believes in Brazilian players and Croatia is a country where the futsal scene is growing. I would like to thank Mr. Čaglj who believes in me and I will do all I can to return that faith. I want to find out what type of city Split is as I heard it is a nice city and a nice place to live which made my decision easier,” said Neto.

Neto will arrive in Split on 15 March.
