Chennaiyin FC have signed 32-year-old Brazilian midfielder Memo Moura who was with Jamshedpur FC over the past three seasons.
From Brazil, Memo played out his youth career with Brazilian clubs América-PE and Santa Cruz Futebol Clube turning pro with the latter in 2007. After spending nearly a decade at Santa Cruz which included numerous loan spells to other Brazilian clubs, Memo found his way to India initially with Delhi Dynamos in 2016.
After a season in Delhi, Memo moved to the Red Miners and has called Jamshedpur home ever since. In four seasons of playing ISL in India, Memo has notched up 64 appearances in the ISL scoring three goals and assisting three. The defensive midfielder on occasion has also stepped in as a centre-back for Jamshedpur FC especially last season.
I am delighted to be a part of the blue Chennaiyin family. The upcoming season will be fantastic, I am certain. It is a pity we won’t be able to feel the warmth of the fans in the stands, as they are truly incredible and loyal.
Every time I have played in Chennai, I have truly felt their passion. They will always be in our thoughts, and we have to work hard and be united to achieve glory.
A unique ISL awaits us, which will be a spectacle in itself.Memo to ISL Media
