Kotoko signs another Brazilian footballer

Asante Kotoko have declared the signing of 27-year old Brazilian forward, Michael Vinicius Silva de Morais on a 2-and-a-half-year deal.

The club disclosed the news on Wednesday morning by means of its official Twitter handle. Aside from the length of the agreement, Kotoko didn't give different subtleties of the move.

Vinicius becomes the second Brazilian to sign for the Ghanaian team Kumasi Asante Kotoko this season after midfielder Fabio Gama joined the Porcupine Warriors.

The 27-year-old will collaborate with countryman Fabio Gama, who joined Kotoko a year ago and is making some extraordinary memories in Ghana.

Kotoko will be Michael’s 11th club in his professional career which started in his native country in 2014. Vinicius joins Kotoko after spells in Brazil with Fluminense, Criciuma, Atletico Mineiro, Resende and Cascavel CR, Estoril in Portugal and Linkoping City and Vasalund both in Sweden.

Michael joined Vasalunds IF after a short spell in the Japanese third-tier with Iwate Grulla Morioka.

He turns into Kotoko's second signing in two days after they declared the catch of previous Karela forward, Solomon Sarfo Taylor.

Why Vinicius and Sarfo Taylor? 

Kotoko's choice to sign these two advances forwards to the club's expectation to address their goal scoring issues. The group were able to score just 13 goals in 17 first round matches in the Ghana Premier League and seven of those were scored by Kwame Opoku who has now left for USM Algers. 

The need to get in more forwards was extremely self-evident and head coach Abdul Gazale will trust that Vinicius and Taylor can track down the net on very regular basis to fuel any desire of winning the Ghana Premier league Title. 

Right now, Kotoko lie fourth on the Ghana Premier League table on 27 points; 4 behind pioneers Karela.

His transfer has been met with monstrous responses as the club's fans and football lovers alike have taken to online media to communicate what they think about the exchange.
