Official: Liga MX welcomes Dani Alves with Pumas


Right-back Dani Alves will play for Pumas UNAM, the Mexican soccer club announced on Thursday, a month after the Brazilian international finished his second spell with Barcelona.

In an Instagram story Dani Alves is observed “following” the Pumas account; in another video you see goyo, Pumas mascot, tour Ciudad Universitaria. That clip ends with the message: “Dani Alves we are waiting for you”.

Less cryptic was the message from Liga MX: Welcome, Dani Alves. We already want to see you on the pitches of the Liga BBVA MX.

The 39-year-old right back boasts 42 titles that he has achieved in his career as a professional soccer player, including the Copa América in 2007 and 2019, as well as the Confederations Cup in 2009 and 2013.

After his departure from Barcelona last June, the defender was wanted by the american team Seattle Sounders and Pumas, so he evidently decided to sign for the feline outfit.

Alves also militated in the clubs Sevilla from Spain, Juventus from Italy and Paris St Germain from France; He also led Brazil to the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics, and was part of the Brazilian team that played in the 2010 and 2014 World Cups.

He made his professional debut in 2001 with the Bahía club in his country and two years later he arrived at Sevilla.
