Another Brazilian Jumping Ship for the Middle East?

In a repeat of last year's poaching of Bare by UAE's Al-Ahli, Nagoya forward Davi looks set to join a team in Qatar or the UAE. (This follows the recent resignation of Vissel's Caio Junior to take up a post at Al-Gharafa, also in Qatar.) Maybe the Arab countries think that by splashing their petrodollars around, their local teams will improve and one of their countries might stand a chance of qualifying for a World Cup, one of these years. :-)

Since Davi almost jumped ship even before he even touched down in Nagoya, it is no surprise that he and his agent have been scheming to set-up a lucrative move to the Middle East. However, despite the team not playing a style the makes the best of his talents, Davi does work hard for the team but tends to try and do too much by himself. The arrival of Josh Kennedy should free Davi to play his natural game, if decides to stay and make help us win this year's ACL.
