Felda United re-sign Brazilian forward Thiago Augusto Fernandes

Malaysian club Felda United have confirmed the return of former player Thiago Augusto Fernandes earlier on Friday.

He is expected to replace the Argentine Gaston Andres Javier Cellerino, who has been underperforming this season.

The Brazilian forward joined Felda United in 2015 from Manama Club. However, he was sidelined for a lengthy period in the 2016 season due to a serious injury.

Later in the season, he joined Kedah on loan, before moving back to Manama.

“Thiago is a striker with proven record with Kedah and Felda United. I’m confident that he is the right man to solve our problems in the attacking department”, coach B. Sathianathan said.
