OFFICIAL: New York Red Bulls Sign Kaka’s Brother Digao

The American giant have decided to sign Digao…

Multiple league sources confirmed the Red Bulls signed Kaka’s younger brother, Digao, a 27-year-old former Milan centerback who last season played sparingly on loan to a second division Portuguese team. The Red Bulls have officially announced the signing on Friday.

Digao has been with the Red Bulls on trial since last week and impressed head coach Hans Backe with his physical prowess and ability to play technically out of the backline. He had a fitness test on Tuesday and did enough to earn a contract.

The long time Milan property, Rodrigo Leite has played for the club just once and has spent loan spells with clubs in Italy and Portugal.

Multiple league sources said that the contract is to be for the rest of the season. Kaka’s brother will wear jersey No. 23.
