  1. I also read here in Brazil that he holds an European passport, but Galliani yesterday said he doesn’t.


    • Wow.. this Ronaldinho-style goal is simply magnificent 😀 Except that Indio is left-footed. Why not bring him to the primavera?
      Regarding Gabriel, in that case.. we’re out of non-EU sports… or someone else with no passport will be sold.


      • If hired, Índio will join our Primavera squad – if not send on loan. He is not ready to the first squad.

        No, we have two spots for non-EU players. But I suppose Galliani was mistaken. Everybody here said that he has an European passport.


      • If he get hired, we may see another Carmona arriving 🙂
        He was the star in Barca, now he’s at Milan. Hopefully same thing will happen to Indio.
        I agree, Galliani must have mistaken the whole thing…


  2. He is going to get his EU passport – a Portuguese one – only in July according to MilanNews. So, until there Galliani is right.
