Next to his family, the forward received the number 99 shirt from the executive director André Mazzuco and was moved to tears as he remembered his journey in football. “Pride.
We suffered a lot, cried a lot,” said the forward. “I went through a lot of suffering, so arriving here is a great pride for me.
I work very hard, I’m dedicated, I do everything every day, always smiling, never with a frown,” he added. Then, Luiz Henrique commented on the involvement of John Textor in the negotiations.
The American leader played a major role in the agreement and traveled to Spain to present the project to the player. Luiz Henrique and John Textor, the owner of Botafogo’s SAF (Photo: Divulgação/Twitter @_JohnTextor_).
“John Textor came to my house, he’s a guy who showed his greatest work to bring me to Botafogo, we’re very happy for what he did, he did everything, he turned our heads (laughs). We are very happy.
I sat down with my wife and we had no doubts in choosing Botafogo,” revealed Luiz Henrique.
