35 years young, Sylvinho, a cultured and successful left back was signed today to give City some backline cover. Given Wayne Bridge’s indifferent start to the 2009-10 campaign, Mark Hughes now has an experienced option on the bench to call upon if need be.
The left back was most recently seen in Barca colors shutting Manchester United down on May 27th in Roma. Remember that match, United supporters?
Sylvinho replaced Eric Abidal who had been suspended after a questionable, borderline frivolous sending off in the semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge. All the left back replacement did was play an amazing 90 minutes to earn his second Champions League winners medal.
The Brazilian has played for some of the world’s top clubs: Corinthians, Arsenal and Barcelona. Now he joins an emerging power on the blue side of Manchester.
Not a bad way to further torment United at the age of 35.
