Kleberson rescurrects career with high flying Brazil
After four years in the dark, he’s back. Manchester United’s ‘mega flop’ Kleberson has seen his career resurrected since his move away from Old Trafford and in this year Confederations Cup has looked every part a accomplished Brazilian player.
Now at Brazilian club Flamengo, a number of good performances has earned him a recall into Brazil’s team and it’s not hard to see why. Accuracy and vision is a must for any player and he seems to have that. When he came off the bench against Italy, for the little time he did play, it wasn’t a bad game for the player that was so used to playing centre midfield on the United bench.
It wasn’t his actual performance but it was a surprise to see him with the shirt. After he left Man Utd he moved to Besiktas where he again failed to make an impact. As that didn’t work out, he arrived back in Brazil, but played in sevral reserve matches before finally getting some luck. Departures of some of two Flamengo midfielders meant that little Kleberson actually got some proper football. And since then, life is good again for a player who hardly seemd to live up to his £6.5 m paid for him by Manchester United.
(Now we go slightly off topic) The Brazil team on a whole has been terrific. Mouth watering football, playing the game the right way, and it is simply football to admire.
A mix of youth and power, this Brazilian team has everything. Boasting the likes of Kaka and Robinho, they have been devastating defences in the tournament, what with the quick rapid counter attacking and slick passing in which this team possesses.
Or the ever so reliable wall in the centre of midfield, Felipe Melo and Gilberto Silva has forged a great partnership. Teams like Italy have failed to break them down, and ended up losing 3-0 without causing to much panic to the defence.
It seems like their coach Dunga has helped Brazil recover and his mission is to get his side to have the status as the best team in the world. What we have seen of them so far, and with the World Cup next year, who knows?
